The first official trailer for Godzilla vs Kong dropped this morning and it delivers all the epic action that you could hope for.
In the past decade Marvel Studios has garnered a deserved reputation for making cinematic filmmaking interconnected. The dreams of seeing big screen heroes team-up and battle against each other is now an everyday reality. Marvel’s efforts led to the biggest movie in box-office history, with Avengers: Endgame. However, several decades before Iron Man punched Captain America’s shield, there was an even bigger clash of cinematic titans.
In 1962, two of arguably the most recognizable screen heroes in movie history battled in King Kong vs. Godzilla. That film was a hit at the time, grossing an estimated $10 million dollars and forever stretched the imagination of kids and filmmakers worldwide.
Now Legendary Pictures is completing their own saga that began with 2014’s reboot of Godzilla, which was then followed by Kong: Skull Island, and Godzilla: King of the Monsters. While the box-office returns for the films trended downward for the aligned franchises, the world and mythology was meticulously crafted so the eventual battle between King Kong and Godzilla felt inevitable.
Today we finally get our first full look at Godzilla vs Kong and it delivers on all the bombastic spectacle that you would hope for from such an ambitious project. Director Adam Wingard is at the helm of the epic blockbuster that pits the two titans against each other, while teasing a larger mystery with the promise of an even greater threat.
Godzilla vs Kong is the second major tentpole release for WB on the HBO Max streaming service, following December’s release of Wonder Woman 1984, so there will be a lot of eyes on the project to see how it performs. Regardless, we are just two short months away from the biggest release of 2021 so far. The time to get hyped is now. Enjoy the trailer.
