We recently got word that Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire will now stomp into theaters two weeks earlier than previously advertised on March 29, and Legendary has now released a Chinese trailer and poster for the latest MonsterVerse movie.

The promo does reuse some footage from the first teaser, but it also contains an awesome new shot of Kong wielding his new gauntlet-like weapon.

We still have no idea how he comes by this, but there's speculation that it's actually some kind of brace that Kong is fitted with after he has his arm broken by the Skar King in an earlier encounter.

Like Kong, the Skar King is another giant ape from Hollow Earth, but we had heard rumors that Godzilla would also have a villainous counterpart to contend with, and some recent tie-in merchandise made it official.

These new action figures not only gave us our best look yet at the Scar King, but revealed an albino, seemingly frost-based creature known as Shimo, who you can also see below along with the trailer and a new poster.

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."

Hard to feel anything about this after Minus One.

@PapaSpank54 - I'm so sick of all these "I don't think I can watch this after minus one" comments. Were you a fan of Godzilla before minus one? Then you'll most likely enjoy this.
Didn't watch godzilla before minus one? Well then don't watch this and piss off.

@EZBeast - bro. It's called having an opinion. I believe that Minus One set the bar very high and the Monsterverse will react to that fact in the future.

EZBeast - 1/23/2024, 11:39 AM
@Alucard28 - that isn't an opinion that is a naive comment that doesn't need to be said.

@EZBeast - People can say whatever they want lol. Specially if it's respectful. It's still a valid opinion even if you don't agree with it and you have no right to behave like a rager because of what the other person said :)

@EZBeast - I would tell you why I'm completely uninterested in GXK but I'm pretty sure all my basic reasoning would slide right off your lil smooth brain. Instead I'll tell you to go sit in a corner, suck your thumb, and look up the actual definition of the word naive. Kisses boo!

@PapaSpank54 - kisses boo? Sorry I don't swing that way champ...

Never said I wanted your opinion, I'd be willing to bet no one in your life does. However your comment's logic would be like saying after liking sony's Spiderman you'd have no interest in Disney's spiderman. But that already has more thought than your actual comment so I doubt you have the processing power in that cranium to say anything intelligent beyond minus one good.

@EZBeast - I actually have a wonderful full life with many people I have full discussions about many topics with, which is why I usually shy away from these sorts of interactions online. But yours was so... troglodyte core that I couldn't resist. Whether or not my brain has the processing power to say anything intelligent is irrelevant when you can't even use words correctly. But I'll throw you a bone.
Minus One and Shin Godzilla are both films that don't feel the need to be dumb just because they're about giant monsters. I really liked the character work in Minus One, even though it was sort of by the numbers, the performances and direction as well as the pacing really made it feel unique. When you get dropped into post firebomb Tokyo, and go through the years seeing Tokyo and the family rebuild, it actually gave the city destruction scene weight. The score was memorable, which is ymmv considering the reuse of Ifukube themes, but Ifukube is my favorite film composer so of course it got me deep. My girlfriend actually cried at the end of the film, and I guarantee Godzilla X Kong doesn't inspire a single emotional response on the level of anything Minus One brought to the table. There's nothing wrong with action movies being dumb, but as someone who loves the Godzilla series I am bothered by Western filmmakers thinking that giant monster movies can't be deeper than surface level. Even Godzilla vs the Sea Monster, which isn't very deep, is still a fun clippy movie with characters you care about. Nothing against people who are excited for GXK, but personally I know the Godzilla series even at its worst has consistently been better than GVK, King of the Monsters (which had a lot of issues but overall is still way better than GVK) and probably this one. Time will tell, but between the CGI that looks worse than Minus One at like ten times the budget, and the precedent set by GVK, I'm not optimistic.

And you're gonna have to do better than Spider-Man comparison, because it's not really applicable here haha.

@PapaSpank54 - all i needed to see was "I actually have a wonderful full life"
I doubt that otherwise You wouldn't need to put comments like that lol

@PapaSpank54 - For me, I liked Minus One, enjoyed Monarch, and this one looks like fun. Just a great time to be a Godzilla fan

@Arthorious - yeah, it's awesome. I still need to see Monarch but I keep hearing good things!

@PapaSpank54 - Won't spoil it for you but it has some really good human elements for some of the characters (others felt a bit unnecessary) but overall a good show.

I don't know who is the head of Legendary Entertainment but whoever they are they should be held in the same esteem as Kevin Feige. Legendary has delivered one of the most successful shared universes in cinema, the Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel and the Dune franchise. These are some of the most epic space operas, CBMs and monster films ever .

All in on this. I still never got to see Godzilla -1. Anyone know when and what platform it'll start on? I want to see that before this film. So excited.
EZBeast
EZBeast - 1/23/2024, 11:26 AM
@lazlodaytona - supposedly you can rent it off demand and if you're in the US the black and white version will be in theaters this weekend.

I'm down for this - any idea if the Kurt Russell is involved?

It was an interesting setup at the end of Monarch.

I'm still of the opinion that Japanese Godzilla is the preferred vintage, but you can never have too many giant monsters [frick]ing shit up...amirite?

I'm excited for this obviously as long as we get a bunch of monster action and a decent human story.

I am a huge Godzilla fan. And I really loved Godzilla 2014. I got to say I am bummed at the turn the franchise took. This looks ridiculous and goofy and somehow they’ve turned Godzilla and Kong into superheroes and I hate it. I want them to smash buildings and step on people.
