Godzilla seems to have turned on humanity, but nobody knows why. That’s where King Kong comes into play. Captured on Skull Island, the full-grown ape now matches the size of Godzilla, and humanity needs him to stop the lizard’s path of destruction, making for an epic, destructive battle. This first trailer gives us a glimpse at two of the fights between the titular titans, one that happens in the middle of the ocean on an aircraft carrier like some kind of arcade game. The other unfolds in a neon cityscape, which we’re assuming is Tokyo, and it gives us one of the most badass moments in the entire trailer.
On the human side of the story, Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) reprises her role from King of the Monsters. Along with Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2) and Brian Tyree Henry (If Beale Street Could Talk), she believes that there’s some mysterious reason that Godzilla has turned against humanity, and she’s dedicated to figuring it out. Then there’s Rebecca Hall, who appears to be an expert on King Kong. She also shares a bit of a bond with the giant ape, because they’ve both taken to protecting a young orphan girl, one who seems to be the key to getting Kong to fight Godzilla on behalf of the humans.
This looks like a huge 1990s blockbuster in the best way possible. I’m getting Independence Day vibes mixed with Pacific Rim. The music in the trailer alone got me pumped as hell. It doesn’t match the throwback vibe of the movie, but it underscores the battle between these two titans so perfectly. Hopefully there’s a decent story here to go along with all the blockbuster spectacle.
Godzilla vs. Kong arrives in theaters and on HBO Max (for 31 days) starting on March 26, 2021.
