After a long wait, Warner released another box office giant that promises a lot of action, smash and wild monsters. The premiere will only be on May 21, 2021.
Some time ago, Warner Bros came with some reboots of classics not only from cinema, but from culture. In 2014 came what would be the beginning of this story of giants, with the new adaptation of Godzilla , which continued with a second film in 2019 called “Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters . ” For its part, the producer was encouraging on the other side to another huge being that has always awakened the legends of distant lands and desert islands. In 2017 the gorilla of thousands of meters returned with “King Kong: Skull Island” and a subsequent appearance in the aforementioned second film of the sea monster of the East.
Everything predicted: a huge clash was coming between two of the most respected (and feared) monsters in comic book culture, the world called the Legendary Pictures Cinematic Monsterverse. Yesterday, Warner has finished fulfilling the dream of many fans, culminating in a shocking trailer that shows how both beasts will face off.
The film was delayed several times, its release date was actually in 2020, but it was finally given a date for May 21, 2021.
Directed by Adam Wingard and starring Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”) and Alexander Skarsgård (“The Legend of Tarzan”), protagonists of different previous films, “Gozdilla vs Kong” promises to be one of those box office explosions, in the style from “Fast and Furious” or “Avengers.” The film also features performances by Rebecca Hall, Eiza González, Jessica Henwick, Zhang Ziyi, Julian Dennison, Kyle Chandler, and Demián Bichir.
The director directs, with the help of the script by Eric Pearson (“Thor: Ragnarok”) and Max Borenstein (“Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” “Kong: Skull Island”), the story of Terry Rossio (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales “) and Michael Dougherty & Zach Shields (” Godzilla: King of the Monsters “)
What is the new Monsterverse movie about?
According to what can be seen in the two and a half minutes of trailer, the fate of the world depends on the meeting of these two monsters, as it always happens in these films. The difference is that one of them, previously considered not an enemy, but an uncontrollable beast, will become an ally of the human race.
Under a protective aura inspired by a little girl named Jia, a young orphan with whom the gorilla has formed a unique and powerful bond , King Kong will battle Godzilla to save humans from a fatal fate.
