‘Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire’ – Behold the Glory of an Epic New Shot of Your Kaiju Kings

Legendary’s Monsterverse returns to the big screen on March 29 with Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, and we’ve been promised a brand new trailer on Wednesday, February 14.

While you wait, Empire Magazine has shared an epic new shot this week. Find it below.

“There’s a bit of a truce — Godzilla’s in control of the surface world and Kong is down in Hollow Earth,” director Adam Wingard tells Empire of the film’s storyline.

Wingard also explains, “The buddy-cop dysfunctional relationship dynamic is probably the best one to describe Godzilla and Kong. My influences are always embedded with the ‘80s, and the ‘80s were prime for [that] storyline. There’s a lot of misunderstanding – the way that the monsters communicate isn’t straightforward.”

Rebecca Hall is back as Dr. Ilene Andrews with Brian Tyree Henry also returning as Bernie Hayes, and they’ll be joined in Godzilla x Kong by Dan Stevens (The Guest).

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire is the thrilling fifth film in the Monsterverse series and sees the legendary Titans Godzilla and Kong team up to face a world-ending threat so terrifying that neither could survive alone.

Adam Wingard (who previously helmed Godzilla vs. Kong) directs Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, which features a screenplay by Simon Barrett (You’re Next, The Guest).

“This latest entry in the Monsterverse franchise follows up the explosive showdown of Godzilla vs. Kong with an all-new cinematic adventure, pitting the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence – and our own. The epic new film will delve further into the histories of these Titans, their origins, and the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond, while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and tied them to humankind forever.”
