Godzilla vs. Kong is an upcoming 2020 American science fiction monster film produced by Legendary Pictures, and the fourth entry in the MonsterVerse. It will be released to American theaters on November 20, 2020.[2]

The second film to pit Godzilla and King Kong against each other, Godzilla vs. Kong will be the culmination of every entry in Legendary and Warner Bros.' MonsterVerse so far. When Godzilla and Kong engage in a battle for supremacy, Monarch embarks on a quest to discover the Titans' origins while a human conspiracy threatens to wipe out all of the ancient creatures.

Description

In a time when monsters walk the Earth, humanity’s fight for its future sets Godzilla and Kong on a collision course that will see the two most powerful forces of nature on the planet collide in a spectacular battle for the ages. As Monarch embarks on a perilous mission into uncharted terrain and unearths clues to the Titans' origins, a human conspiracy threatens to wipe the creatures, both good and bad, from the face of the earth forever.[3]

Development

Spoiler.png SPOILER WARNING: This section may contain major plot and/or ending details. Proceed at your own discretion.

Rumors of a King Kong vs. Godzilla remake began as soon as Legendary Pictures announced Kong: Skull Island in 2014. On September 10, 2015, Deadline reported that the project's move from Universal Pictures to Godzilla distributor Warner Bros. was meant to facilitate a rematch between the two monsters.[4] The Hollywood Reporter published its own article on the impending crossover six days later.[5] On October 14, 2015, Legendary confirmed its intent to launch a cinematic universe featuring both Godzilla and King Kong, as well as other giant monsters including Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. Godzilla was the first entry in this cinematic universe, later officially dubbed the MonsterVerse, and it was to be followed by Kong: Skull Island and the Godzilla sequel Godzilla: King of the Monsters before finally culminating with Godzilla vs. Kong.[6] Initially, the release date for Godzilla vs. Kong was simply given as 2020. On May 10, 2016, The Wrap reported that Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Godzilla vs. Kong had been given new release dates of March 22, 2019 and May 29, 2020, respectively.[7]

On March 10, 2017, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Legendary would be assembling a writers room to come up with the story for the film, comprised of Terry Rossio (who previously worked on the original version of TriStar's Godzilla film), Patrick McKay, J.D. Payne, Lindsey Beer, Cat Vasko, T.S. Nowlin, and J. Michael Straczynski.[8] On May 3, Warner Bros. announced that it had moved the release date for Godzilla vs. Kong up a week from May 29, 2020 to May 22.[9] Adam Wingard finalized a deal to become the film's director on May 30.[10] In an interview with ScreenCrush on August 18, he described Godzilla vs. Kong as a "massive monster brawl movie." He said the film would contain "lots of monsters going crazy on each other" but also stated "at the end of the day I want there to be an emotional drive to it."[11]

On June 1, That Hashtag Show revealed that Deadpool 2 star Julian Dennison had been cast in the film in a supporting role, while Millie Bobby Brown and Kyle Chandler would both be reprising their roles from Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The article also reported that Legendary had offered Frances McDormand a starring role in the film.[12] The following day, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed this report, save for the talks with McDormand, adding that Zhang Ziyi would be reprising her role from Godzilla: King of the Monsters as well, and that Van Marten would be joining the film's cast.[13] After That Hashtag Show claimed McDormand had been cast in July, her representatives denied her involvement.[14] That Hashtag Show later clarified in a retraction that McDormand was never in negotiations for a role and had passed on the film.[15]

Further casting announcements followed as the film neared the start of production: Brian Tyree Henry on October 10,[16] Demián Bichir on October 17,[17] Alexander Skarsgård on October 25,[18] Eiza González[19] and Rebecca Hall on October 30,[20] Jessica Henwick on November 8,[21] Shun Oguri on November 11,[22] and Lance Reddick on November 14.[23] In a SiriusXM interview on November 5, Skarsgård described his character as "not an alpha, bad-ass hero, which I thought was quite interesting. He is thrown into this very dangerous situation and is definitely not equipped for it and that makes it a bit more interesting in my opinion than had he been a bad-ass dude. He’s just a tiny, tiny human trying to survive between these two behemoths."[24]

On February 21, 2019, Warner Bros. moved up the release date of the film to March 13 to avoid competition with the ninth entry in the The Fast and the Furious franchise.[25]

On May 30, the day before the international theatrical release of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, an advertisement for Godzilla vs. Kong was shown at Licensing Expo 2019, featuring artwork of the two titular monsters battling with the tagline "One will fall." While promoting Godzilla: King of the Monsters in China, Millie Bobby Brown discussed her role as Madison in Godzilla vs. Kong, explaining that as Godzilla and Kong come to blows with one another, she goes on a journey to decide which of them she will ultimately side with.[26] On June 17, Warner Bros. presented footage from Godzilla vs. Kong along with its other major upcoming films to European exhibitors at CineEurope. Deadline reported that Godzilla vs. Kong was set to release internationally on March 11, 2020, two days before its American debut, despite earlier comments from WB Chairman Toby Emmerich suggesting the possibility that the film could be delayed.[27]

On November 25, 2019, Variety reported that the release date for Godzilla vs. Kong had been pushed back eight months to November 20, 2020.[2] A short clip from the film, showing Kong throwing a punch at Godzilla, played before the Warner Bros. presentation at Comic Con Experience in Brazil on December 8, 2019.[28]

On January 7, 2020, photographs from a toy expo surfaced online showing figures for Godzilla vs. Kong. These included multiple figures of Godzilla and Kong, including a figure of Godzilla wearing what appeared to be battle armor labeled "Mega Godzilla" and Kong wielding an axe. Other figures included a Skullcrawler and an unidentified red creature. An April 5, 2020, leak of official toy images revealed the unidentified creature to be a winged serpent named Nozuki.[29] Most noteworthy were several figures of what appeared to be a new incarnation of Mechagodzilla.

On January 17, Adam Wingard posted on his Instagram that Godzilla vs. Kong was in the closing stages of editorial and only a few months away from completion.[30]

On May 20, Legendary Comics held a digital WonderCon panel discussing the upcoming graphic novel tie-ins for the film. The panel revealed the authors and illustrators behind the Kong- and Godzilla-centric graphic novels, as well as The Art of Godzilla vs. Kong and a Kong-centric Godzilla vs. Kong picture book. Images from the graphic novels were shown as well.

Production

Principal photography on Godzilla vs. Kong began on November 12, 2018 in Hawaii, under the title Apex.[31] The production wrapped in Hawaii on December 20 and resumed at Village Roadshow Studios in Oxenford, Australia, in the third week of January.[32] Outdoor shoots took place at various Gold Coast locations, wrapping in early April.[33]

In my opinion I think this movie might determines Godzilla future because lets say this film flops toho probably won't be doing their toho Godzilla universe and they probably won't renew the license. But if this movie succeeds this is will probably continue the monstervese and the toho Godzilla universe will still be on

With the majority of Disney films coming to November which will provide unfair advantage against other films, It's up to Legendary and WB must make a decide to postpone Godzilla VS Kong or not since Disney always gain much better revenue since the majority of people who will see the films are mostly Marvel fans, Disney loyalists, and most critically, families.

I find Meesmoth's repetitive pessimism with these movies grating, but I'll go one further: none of the blockbusters scheduled for November will actually come out then. They're too expensive to turn a profit if theaters continue to limit their seating capacity when they reopen. (AMC, for one, is already making plans to fill its schedule with older movies.)

I know im late to the party but for my two cents for the delay, yes, i was pretty pissed about it but fully understood why it had to happen considering how the heavy competion the previous film had to contend with and how it affected the performance in the end so they had to delay the film to make sure it's top quality. The problem i had with it is that i fear for possible reshoots that will make the film more of a product than an actual film. The leaked preview looked really awesome, but it's way too early to tell whenever it will be in the actual film, right now its best to wait and see any developments happens in the coming months whenever the film will be an awesome specticle and see the ultimate clash we all deserve.

Food isn't a problem. It's how much he's growing. He's possibly grown to 3x his original size. His calorie intake must be so incredibly huge, that he would eat most of the Skull Crawlers in a couple decades. Did he intake radiation maybe? That's my theory as he is labeled as a titan just like Godzilla. Godzilla also took in radiation as a power-up so Kong could do the same except he changes size and power instead.

Well, the original release date was only what, like 3 months and 2 weeks from now? It makes sense, but why eight months?

According to an interview with Toby Emmerich, one of the heads at Warner Bros., he stated that the movie, “Might come out later in the year, so we can deliver an A+ movie.” It’s most likely the underperformance of KotM affecting it, and probably a bunch of other things I don’t know about.

Told ya, the failure of KotM resulted in another delay to the biggest crossover in the kaiju genre. If KotM was delayed one more time instead of releasing it on May 31 this will not likely to happen because Endgame was basically showing at the same time, bad time to release it.

@ShodIMeesmothLarva: *face palm* Really dude? Really? You’re going to bring this “KotM would’ve been better if Endgame didn’t exist” tirade up again?


You, myself, and everyone else have zero control over a movie’s performance. Just enjoy what you saw. In other words: Move on. That’s all I have to say.

@Astounding Beyond Belief: I know that, but I’m willing to bet that KotM still would’ve played out the same way even if Endgame and Aladdin didn’t play around the same time. The critics still would’ve been triggered by whatever was in the movie. But honestly, enjoy it the way you enjoy it, and ignore the bad stuff about it. That’s all I have to say.


(Quick opinion: no, I don’t think KotM is a perfect film. But was it better than the last 2 movies? Certainly. Did I like the movie? Of course, but the novel was better. Did I like the merchandise? Absolutely. But it doesn’t matter if the movie was good or bad, because I like anime better anyway).

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

@KING GHIDORAH 1954: I agree with that, but it doesn’t mean we should get salty over things that we don’t have TOTAL control over.

You can see KotM as many times as you wanted, and all you’d do is bankrupt yourself and contribute little to its box office. That’s why a combination of good marketing and people being interested in these kinds of things actually help a movie become successful.


If you want a good example of a good movie bombing against another big movie, let’s go back to 1999. On August 6, the movies The 6th Sense and The Iron Giant were released. Now, forget the fact that both films were critical darlings, The 6th Sense grossed over $670 million against a budget of $40 million, whereas The Iron Giant grossed $31 million against a budget of $50 million.


Now you might think, “If 6th Sense was released earlier or later, Iron Giant would've made more greens. Am I right?” I hate to say, but you're wrong, and here’s why.


Even if that were the case, Iron Giant still would’ve bombed due to poor marketing, because WB were skeptical about the film’s potential success (now, there have been poorly marketed movies that were still financially successful, but that’s not what we’re talking about).


If you want an okay movie being successful against another big flick, go back to 2018, when Rampage and Infinity War were running simultaneously (and Rampage isn’t even a MonsterVerse film). Despite IW grossing over $2 billion, and breaking box office records in the process, Rampage was still able to gross enough cash to break even against its budget (Rampage grossed $428 million against a budget of $140 million). And have I mentioned that Iron Giant, Rampage, and KotM were distributed by WB? Just want to throw that out there.


So I hope that clears it up. And Meesmoth, if you’re reading this, please move on. Thank you.

Happy Thanksgiving.

It makes sense, another factor could have been the fact that the few toys of kotm where it the big four, and we only recently got a proposed behemoth toy. It might have made a little bit more money if they made figures of Scylla, Methuselah, the new MUTO, and Behemoth with the big four kaiju in the film.

This better be good, or I'll probably cry into a pillow. Adam Wingard being the director worries me considering he directed that absolutely awful Death Note movie. I don't see how he could possibly screw up having two monsters fight each other, but if he somehow does, I'll feel sad.

At the very least, Michael Dougherty came back to write the story. So hopefully his creative influence shines through. With the monsters, anyway. I hope this film has better written human characters. Not that I think KOTM's were outright terrible (I have a whole blog post on 'em: https://wiki...4or8l5m1cjzt), but we could use some better human writing all the same.
