Godzilla has a rather mighty new foe to face.
Warner Bros. latest monster melee Godzilla vs. Kong released an explosive new trailer Sunday teasing the otherworldly behemoths’ epic throwdown to come. The fourth entry of Legendary’s monster universe (directed by You’re Next‘s Adam Wingard) premieres on its earlier-than-planned release date of March 26, 2021, simultaneously hitting theaters and debuting for 30 days on HBO Max, at no additional cost to subscribers.
According to its official description, “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.”
