Original story follows:
Legendary has revealed a new poster for Godzilla vs. Kong in anticipation of a new trailer dropping on Sunday, January 24.This trailer will be the first full trailer for the movie released and while nobody knows exactly what’s going to happen in the movie, one thing is clear: Godzilla and Kong have a bone to pick with each other. That’s very apparent in the new poster Legendary revealed today, which shows Godzilla swimming toward a city seemingly under siege by Kong.
As you can see on the poster above, it seems that by the end of this movie, either Godzilla or Kong will have fallen and it’s likely we’ll get a tease of this impending face-off in the first ever trailer for the movie when it’s released on Sunday, January 24.
This new poster comes weeks before the movie is released on March 26. Godzilla vs. Kong was originally set to hit theaters in 2020, but COVID-19 shifted this movie’s release to a later date as it did for dozens of other films. It was then set for a March 21 release before it was delayed by five days to March 26 last week.
Godzilla vs. Kong is a sequel to 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters and 2017’s Kong: Skull Island and stars Millie Bobbie Brown, Alexander Skarsgård, and Rebecca Hall. It was directed by Adam Wingard, who is known for horror films like You’re Next, V/H/S, and Blair Witch.
A Visual History of Godzilla
This movie’s fight between its two titular monsters is what the 2014 Godzilla reboot has been building toward and it’s a face-off fans have been eager to see since the first footage of Godzilla vs. Kong was released late last year.
