Kaiju fans were blown away this week when it was revealed that the long-awaited titanic clash between the lizard king and the ruler of Skull Island, Godzilla Vs Kong, would be moving from its release date in May to earlier this March, and a new trailer for HBO Max has revealed a brief new snippet of footage that sees the two giant monsters sparring against one another. Following the colossal sequel of Godzilla: King of the Monsters that landed in 2019, fans have been waiting patiently to finally see what might be the biggest monster brawl that we've ever seen captured on film!
The film, directed by Adam Wingard of The Guest and Blair Witch fame, is promising to bring back several characters from the previous Legendary Pictures' films and is sure to have plenty of surprises for kaiju fans who have been waiting to see the king of the monsters' return. Though an official trailer has yet to be released for Godzilla Vs Kong, with the release of the film weeks away, we definitely wouldn't be surprised to see it drop sooner rather than later.
HBO Max released the new trailer for their streaming service via their Official Twitter Account, not only giving us new footage for Godzilla Vs Kong, but several of their other films releasing this year such as The Suicide Squad, Tom & Jerry, Dune, Mortal Kombat, Space Jam: A New Legacy, and more:

Meanwhile, on Skull Island, strange seismic activity draws the attention of Godzilla and Kong alike."
