First Trailer For Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire Is Released

The first trailer and another poster for Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire have been released that tease a team-up of epic proportions.

Article Summary

  • First epic trailer of 'Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire' teases legendary team-up.
  • Warner Bros. sets to dominate box office with a triple blockbuster lineup.
  • Despite past obstacles, studio confidence in MonsterVerse secures new film.
  • Godzilla x Kong showdown returns April 12, 2024, in theaters and IMAX internationally.

We got some images from Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire today after Legendary and Warner Bros. Discovery teased the film with awesome-looking character posters earlier this week. After the Fruiosa reveal and the new character posters for Dune: Part Two, it's pretty clear that Warner Bros. is kicking in the door to tell everyone that they plan to dominate the spring and early summer box office with three big films and it's time to show off the third. The MonsterVerse is a strange kaiju if there ever was one, but the fact that this movie was made is a good sign that studios are willing to consider context when looking at release numbers. Godzilla vs. Kong didn't exactly do well, but it was up against the wall of COVID, low vaccination numbers, hybrid release, and a lot of pirating. The studio took all that and decided another film was worth looking into. This film looks to team up the two from the previous films to take on another that neither can defeat alone. We got a poster and an official trailer.
