The Godzilla vs. Kong trailer dropped on Sunday giving fans their first major look at the final film in Legendary's Monsterverse quadrilogy which will see, as the title suggests, Godzilla face-off with Kong with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Godzilla vs. Kong is a film that fans have been waiting on for a while now and while it is now set for release on March 26th rather than its originally scheduled May 21st both in theaters and on HBO Max, finally getting the trailer is exciting -- even for the film's director Adam Wingard.

But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe. The epic clash between the two titans--instigated by unseen forces--is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth."
