Good news for Kaiju fans, as Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire will now stomp into theaters two weeks earlier than previously advertised.

Legendary and Warner Bros. have removed Bong Joon-Ho‘s sci-fi adaptation Mickey 17 from its schedule entirely (a new date will be announced down the line), and moved the latest MonsterVerse instalment into its March 29 spot.

We also have a new Japanese trailer for the movie, and while it does reuse some footage from the first teaser, it also contains several brand-new shots of the iconic Titans joining forces to combat the powerful threat of the Skar King.

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 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.

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."

They really should have had Godzilla and Kong not team up again immediately after the last team up.

@mountainman - or at least make them as a selectable team in NBA Jam.
mountainman
mountainman - 1/10/2024, 8:13 AM
@slickrickdesigns - I’d beat them with Muggsy Bogues and the Hornets.

@mountainman - John Stockton and the Jazz

@lazlodaytona - There’s just something special about the early to mid 90’s NBA.
lazlodaytona
lazlodaytona - 1/10/2024, 8:57 AM
@mountainman - 100% man. I loved that era. Even tho I've been a lifelong Spurs fan and they could never get over the hump to the finals (tho, we did get the '99 title), I still watched every game I could.
mountainman
mountainman - 1/10/2024, 9:12 AM
@lazlodaytona - I stopped watching NBA in the 00’s when traveling no longer became a thing and all the players started flopping for foul calls.
lazlodaytona
lazlodaytona - 1/10/2024, 9:56 AM
@mountainman - Yeah, that part does suck. Now, regular game scores are like 140-152 because the league effectively took defense outta the league with new rules. If you stuck Steph Curry back in the 90s and played by their rules, no way he puts up the shots he gets so freely currently. I'd love to see Curry go up against a Stockton, Nic Van Exel, Tim Hardaway, Chauncy Billups, Penny Hardaway, Pippen when they'd move him to defend the PG (same with Jordan), John Starks, Mark Jackson, and, most of all...Gary Payton. These guys would tear Curry up and be able to score at will on him because HE can't play defense. Payton would humiliate him.

My bad. I got sidetracked to basketball on a comic movie site.

@lazlodaytona - Basketball, Football (American) and Baseball have all changed rules over time to promote offense over defense. I guess some people prefer it that way.

Say what you want about soccer, but at least it has more or less retained its basic rules and structure over time.

I largely don’t care about most team sports these days. MMA and other individual sports are far more interesting.

Nice to see an article not related to Echo Spoilers from JW.
Godzilla x Kong, it’ll probably be just as good as the GvK which means if you like WWE and kaiju then you’re going to love this live action version of Rampage minus the Rock.
lazlodaytona
lazlodaytona - 1/10/2024, 8:43 AM
@slickrickdesigns - I actually liked Rampage. Stupid, silly, and fun popcorn flick.
slickrickdesigns
slickrickdesigns - 1/10/2024, 9:13 AM
@lazlodaytona - yeah it’s as good as a Kong or Congo movie.

After Godzilla Minus One this movie will have big shoes to fill IMO... I enjoyed the Monsterverse so far but we'll see.

@Alucard28 - They're unrelated, right? Like Pattinson and Affleck's Batmen? I mean, it'd be a lot cooler if they were tied in, but I thought they were separate series.
MotherGooseUPus
MotherGooseUPus - 1/10/2024, 8:44 AM
@Alucard28 - those 2 movies are on different spectrums of Godzilla, and it won't be competing with it. Its simply a good time to be a Godzilla fan
Alucard28
Alucard28 - 1/10/2024, 9:20 AM
@MotherGooseUPus - I just care about good movies. GvK was fun but I enjoyed the previous Monsterverse movies more.

MGxK won't be competing with Minus One but there will be definetely comparisons.

Got Bayformers vibes from that trailer...

On the other hand, i've been enjoying the Monarch TV show, so i may give it a shot.

@UniqNo - Monarch dragged in the middle of the season but the last few episodes have been great!

Why the hell does Shimo look so swole on the art.
EZBeast
EZBeast - 1/10/2024, 8:37 AM
Why would they do that!? Now it'll be closer to Ghostbusters frozen empire. 2 empire related films right next to each other will legitimately confuse stupid people and now it won't let the hype die down enough from frozen empire...
lazlodaytona
lazlodaytona - 1/10/2024, 8:45 AM
@EZBeast - you might be a little over-worried about the audience's confusion. Yes, there's a lotta stupid people out there but that's why they watch movies and never read books.
MotherGooseUPus
MotherGooseUPus - 1/10/2024, 8:46 AM
@EZBeast - i actually now think they come out on the SAME day, but i could be wrong. regardless this was a boneheaded move on their part. i'll still be seeing this opening weekend regardless of reviews etc...
EZBeast
EZBeast - 1/10/2024, 9:09 AM
@lazlodaytona - true but I'd people can believe the corona virus can be spread from Corona beer then the stupidity is there.

In reality though it is a confusing situation with titles like that with then both essentially being scifi monster related content. yes I know one is legit monsters the other ghosts but the point is they're similar and out st thr same time.
EZBeast
EZBeast - 1/10/2024, 9:12 AM
@MotherGooseUPus - thankfully they're a week apart. I just think it was a safer spot to have left it where it was.
lazlodaytona
lazlodaytona - 1/10/2024, 9:50 AM
@EZBeast - I understand what you mean. And I totally forgot about people stopped buying Carona beer :D Frickin' morons. More for the rest of us!
lazlodaytona
lazlodaytona - 1/10/2024, 8:46 AM
I'm in! This looks like a blast.
I've still yet to see Godzilla Minus One but as soon as it streams, I'm on it.

Why is a giant ape shouting at people on the beach.... like why does he give a shit? They're ants. You don't see me yelling at ants, I mean maybe you do during a psychotic break, but not typically.

It also bothered me in the Meg why a shark that big cared about prey that was the size of popcorn for them. Go after whales bro
mountainman
mountainman - 1/10/2024, 9:15 AM
@WhatIfRickJames - The Meg was so bad. Still haven’t seen the 2nd one and I’ll have to be really bored or high to decide to try it out.
EZBeast
EZBeast - 1/10/2024, 9:15 AM
@WhatIfRickJames - to be fair, when you're the "leader" of an evil empire your ego to conquer the lesser beings can definitely be a possibility. Also sharks can't build weapons to fight back but humans would always be an issue for giant monsters.
WhatIfRickJames
WhatIfRickJames - 1/10/2024, 9:19 AM
@EZBeast - BUT WHY BEACHGOERS? They have no weapons
EZBeast
EZBeast - 1/10/2024, 9:26 AM
@WhatIfRickJames - sometimes a roar is just a roar or spreading a little chaos isn't a bad thing.
MotherGooseUPus
MotherGooseUPus - 1/10/2024, 9:47 AM
@mountainman - tbh, the first Meg i very much enjoyed. Meg2 was absolute dogshit. if you hated the first dont bother with the 2nd. it's just really really bad.
