As the movie industry continues to play musical chairs with release dates, Godzilla vs. Kong is actually bumping its release date up instead of pushing it back further. It will now open in theaters nationwide as well as debut on HBO Max on March 26, 2021.
Originally slated for May 21, 2021, Godzilla vs. Kong has moved its release date a few times since its original planned opening in 2020.
The upcoming film is a sequel to 2019’s Godzilla: King of Monsters and 2017’s Kong: Skull Island in which the two titular monsters will finally go toe-to-toe in Legendary’s so-called Monsterverse.
Directed by Adam Wingard, known for his work primarily on horror films such as You’re Next, V/H/S, and Blair Witch, Godzilla vs. Kong is going to be his first action-centric film. It will also see returning star Millie Bobbie Brown joined by co-stars Alexander Skarsgård and Rebecca Hall.
Godzilla and Kong have been building towards this epic clash since 2014’s Godzilla reboot and fans have been eager to see the two universes collide on the big screen since the first footage was released late last year.
It’s unlikely that these are the only two Titans that will be featured, however, as many of the kaiju from the Godzilla franchise are likely to make another appearance.
