Godzilla vs Kong got the fandom buzzing when it put out its first trailer at the start of 2021, and there is even more where that comes from. Not long ago, the film put out its first Japanese trailer, and it is just as epic as the one released by HBO Max. A slew of new footaage is interspersed with this promo, so fans will want to pay close attention as Godzilla lands a smack on Kong's face. You can check out the full trailer below.
As you watch the trailer, you will see that much of it starts off the same as the first. Kong has been taken from Skull Island for unknown reasons, and things pop off when Godzilla confronts the ape on his way to the mainland. Their fight on the ship is expanded with some juicy new clips. Fans are also given more context behind the mysterious Japanese man who appeared in the first trailer. This new promo confirms the man is none other than Dr. Serizawa's son, and he seems to have less-than-honorable plans for the kaiju that killed his father.
Currently, Godzilla vs Kong is slated for a release on May 21, 2021 and will be PG-13. The film is officially described as such, "In a new world where man and monster now coexist, Monarch must lead the way to a prosperous future alongside the Titans, keeping humanity in check. However, rival factions that want to manipulate the Titans for war begin to rise under the guise of a nefarious conspiracy, threatening to wipe out all life on the planet. Meanwhile, on Skull Island, strange seismic activity draws the attention of Godzilla and Kong alike."
If you are wanting to know how Godzilla vs Kong will be shown, it will be one of the first movies to ever debut with a hybrid distribution. WarnerMedia confirmed its 2021 slate of movies will be released simultaneously in theaters and HBO Max. For the latter, subscribers will get immediate access to movies such as Godzilla vs Kong with zero additional cost. So if you're uncomfortable visiting theaters given the current pandemic, Godzilla vs Kong will come home to you!
