Well there it is. Warrants a new thread.








Director Adam Wingard, on his official Instagram account, claims that what the trailer shows is only the tip of the monster iceberg....









GODZILLA vs. KONG SYNOPSIS

From Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures comes the long-awaited face-off between two icons in the epic adventure “Godzilla vs. Kong,” directed by Adam Wingard.

Legends collide in “Godzilla vs. Kong” as these mythic adversaries meet in a spectacular battle for the ages, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe. The epic clash between the two titans—instigated by unseen forces—is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth.

The film stars Alexander Skarsgård (“Big Little Lies,” “The Little Drummer Girl”), Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”), Rebecca Hall (“Christine,” “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women”), Brian Tyree Henry (“Joker,” “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”), Shun Oguri (“Weathering with You”), Eiza González (“Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw”), Julian Dennison (“Deadpool 2”), with Kyle Chandler (“Godzilla: King of the Monsters”) and Demián Bichir (“The Nun,” “The Hateful Eight”).

Wingard (“The Guest,” “You’re Next”) directed from a screenplay by Eric Pearson (“Thor: Ragnarok”) and Max Borenstein (“Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” “Kong: Skull Island”), story by Terry Rossio (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”) and Michael Dougherty & Zach Shields (“Godzilla: King of the Monsters”), based on the character “Godzilla” owned and created by TOHO CO., LTD. The film was produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Eric McLeod, Jon Jashni, Thomas Tull and Brian Rogers, with Jay Ashenfelter, Herbert W. Gains, Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira executive producing.

The director’s behind-the-scenes creative team included director of photography Ben Seresin (“The Mummy,” “World War Z”), production designers Owen Paterson (“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” “Godzilla”) and Thomas S. Hammock (“Blair Witch”), editor Josh Schaeffer (“Godzilla: King of the Monsters”), costume designer Ann Foley (“Skyscraper”) and visual effects supervisor John “DJ” DesJardin (upcoming “Zack Snyder’s Justice League”).

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Present a Legendary Pictures Production, A Film By Adam Wingard, “Godzilla vs. Kong.” The film will be released nationwide in 2D and 3D in select theaters and IMAX on March 26, 2021 and will be available in the U.S. on HBO Max for 31 days from theatrical release. It is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of creature violence/destruction and brief language.

Yeah I want nonstop monster fighting, but that won't happen, I already see too much kids in this trailer. I will see it of course, but I'm always disappointed by the human characters.

And what is that music in the trailer? So bad.

Sweet. Kinda one-sided in Kong's favor it looks. Godzilla doesn't even get a hit in?

Godzilla 2 was utter trash. Kong Skull Island was amazing.

This right here looks like stupid fun. I'll give it a chance.

That was awesome. I didn't like the Godzilla sequel or Kong: Skull Island but this looks great.

If you know annnnnything about the original film, you know Kong is going down - and rightfully so - the only saving grace is he's protecting that girl - otherwise him and that military troop - per the original movie were up to evil misdoings - planning to create apocalyptic level chaos worldwide. At least if they didn't deviate from the source material. And this was whether Kong knew it or not (he was aware of this at some level in the original). Enter Godzilla, who only showed up to very literally save Humanity. Though the story is from Kong's perspective.

Kong's going down. And Kong ain't no King of The Monsters.

Edit: The story literally goes like this in the original - Godzilla found a way to communicate with Human Civilization through advanced computers/AI/brain interfacing - Hong Kong Intelligence find's out of a dastardly plan being pursued by Kong/Crew - and they immediately ask Godzilla, who is hanging out near Hong Kong to save humanity from this militaristic terrorism scheduled to commence - Godzilla swims allllll the way back to America from Hong Kong and handles it. The only saving grace for Kong is he's protecting that little girl. Otherwise he's ready to bash out mayhem and cause Chaos/mass death across the world.

The original film saw Kong using a weapon on Godzilla too, then Godzilla decided Kong was suddenly serious business and Annihilates Kong almost instantly, like he was nothing but some punk all along.

After this, the films become mecha based, giant fembots with swords vs monsters ect

He's a smart monkey? It's a monster movie for god's sake.
exactly it is a monster movie We do not need smart movies with some "EPIC" Back story or reason to fight. Just let them fucking fight.

thats why freddy vs jason was a more fun movie because there was no reason behind it. They just went apeshit^^

I don't mind a little backstory. I guess we will see how much they go into when it comes out. To those who want nothing but monsters fighting, I'm not sure you guys ever saw any of the other movies. Plenty of human bs in all of them.

yeah man, that shit was terrible... I don't know why they don't just make these movies about the monsters themselves, you know, like how they socialize with one another. It would still be significantly more relatable than the 'human characters' in the previous film

The old godzilla movies had some story in it but nothing "epic" in this regard.

mechagodzilla is pretty much garaunteed from the toy line leaks awhile back (though he could’ve been scrapped)

my guess is the “godzilla is on a rampage” plot is actually just mecha
That's my guess too. We also got a refinery attack which is when, in Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla, the fake Godzilla is revealed to be Mechagodzilla:

Yeah, that's what I've been reading. Makes sense really. Man, super excited about this.

Godzilla has gone rogue and is hurting people. It was hinted at the end of Godzilla KOTM, once Godzilla defeats King Ghidorah, Dr. Rick Stanton (Bradley Whitford) says "Good thing he's on our side" and Dr. Ilene Chen (Zhang Ziyi) replies "For now.". (Filming of Godzilla Vs Kong took place from November 2018 up to April 2019, before the theatrical release of Godzilla KOTM. By the time King of the Monsters hit the theatres, the story had already been set)
Why is Godzilla "not on our side anymore", that is a good question to be seen. Is it Mechagodzilla, is it something else?

I just noticed that Kyle Chandler is in this movie too. He was Bruce Baxter in King Kong (2005).

The Russell family -> Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga and Millie Bobby Brown from Godzilla KOTM.
The reviewers drew a fine point on that

Benjamin Lee of The Guardian gave the film 2 out of 5 stars, writing that it "has rare moments of visual splendour but they can't disguise a laughable script with a ramshackle narrative." Chris Evangelista of /Film gave the film a score of 6.5 out of 10, criticizing the human characters and writing that "The ultimate kaiju smack-down shouldn't be this boring."
