As the release of the latest entry in Legendary's MonsterVerse franchise, Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, draws near, the movie has been given an official rating by the MPAA.

Like all previous films in the franchise, the Godzilla Vs. Kong follow-up has been rated PG-13 for "creature violence and action" (the same rating as Godzilla Minus One).

No surprise there, but we do also have a couple of new promo images featuring three of the human characters, as well as an awesome still shot from the trailer featuring both iconic Titans charging into battle.

The first image includes The Guest star Dan Stevens, who is set to reunite with director Adam Wingard as a new character named Trapper. The Legion alum describes him as “a specialist in these creatures… If you’ve got a sick titan, Trapper is your guy.“

Rebecca Hall (Dr. Ilene Andrews), Brian Tyree Henry (Bernie Hayes) and Kaylee Hottle (Jia) will reprise their roles from the previous movie, but Millie Bobby Brown and Alexander Skarsgård will not be back, with Legion alum Dan Stevens taking over as the main protagonist. Fala Chen, Alex Ferns and Rachel House also joined the cast.

Director Adam Wingard will collaborate once more with production designer Tom Hammock, editor Josh Schaeffer, and composer Tom Holkenborg. Terry Rossio is back on script duties, along with Jeremy Slater and Wingard's frequent collaborator Simon Barrett.

"This latest entry follows up the explosive showdown of Godzilla vs. Kong with an all-new cinematic adventure, pitting the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence – and our own. The epic new film will delve further into the histories of these Titans, their origins and the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond, while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and tied them to humankind forever.

The story sees the legendary Titans Godzilla and Kong team up to face a world-ending threat so terrifying that neither could survive alone."

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire arrives in theaters on March 29.

@bobevanz - I sometimes have it on in the background when editing or doing some braindead work. To be fair some comedies actually get better with age, 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' has only gotten better with age.

I get to see Godzilla -1 this friday with me mums. The black and white version in the theater. I so can't wait! Then will be anticipating this flick a great deal!

Can the monsters kill all the human characters in this movie, they are so hard to watch.

Especially in Godzilla Vs King Kong.

Turn your brain off for this, prepare to be wowed with Minus One

@bobevanz - can't wait for Minus One, it's not showing until March where I live so I'll have to hold my horses until then.
But I'm just so happy that Godzilla is getting the time to shine he deserves in the West now. Been a fan since watching Toho movies as a kid (a german TV station called RTL2 used to air them almost every saturday morning)

Getting even more pumped for this because I'm watching monarch right now!

I would like to see a more expanded monster verse to be honest. Even something like a Rodan prequel set during the Mayan time period. Or maybe another series similar to Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, where each episode focuses on a different titan in a different period of time. Maybe call it "Monarch: The Titan Archives"
Blergh
Blergh - 1/25/2024, 10:31 AM
@SonOfAGif - that could be a great season 2 to Monarch. Maybe turn it into a monster-of-the-week type affair similar to the animated Godzilla '97 show (which was better than the movie)

@SonOfAGif - I'm totally fine with them Transformer'ing this property
SonOfAGif
SonOfAGif - 1/25/2024, 10:35 AM
@Blergh - I agree. I would like to see different Titans before they went dormant. Or how people in different periods of time worshipped their regional Titan.
Arthorious
Arthorious - 1/25/2024, 1:02 PM
@SonOfAGif - Would love to see Rodan through back into the mix again. If Monarch gets a season 2 they should definitely focus on other titans. Ones that won't get a one off.
SonOfAGif
SonOfAGif - 1/25/2024, 2:11 PM
@Arthorious - Well Season 2 will focus on Kong and how Apex/Monarch contained him and obtained so many Skull Crawler eggs and it will probably lead into King of the Monsters.

Millie Bobby Brown is not in it this time. at least thats something going for it.

@grif - Yeah she is a terrible actress. Her best work was Stranger Things Season 1, where she had minimal dialog.
Blergh
Blergh - 1/25/2024, 10:45 AM
@grif - didn't mind her in the other movies, I never gave much of a crap about human characters in Monster movies. Cranston, Farmiga and Skarsgard were solid holdovers until we got to see the main stars again but these movies are really about the monsters.
grif
grif - 1/25/2024, 10:49 AM
@Blergh - she did absolutely nothing and was there to put butts in seats.

Godzilla pg13 didn’t see that coming all Godzilla movies are pg13 if Japan made movies close to manga might be r rated for some with violence where mecha godzilla rips Godzilla fin in half and off his body and Godzilla loses two eyes becomes blind temporarily in manga movie version

I hope they release a special TV Spot for the Superbowl.

And what is this that I'm reading of Millie Bobby Brown being a bad actress and it's good she's not here? The bad takes just continue to pollute this website.
