Warner Bros. has just dropped an epic three-minute trailer for Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, and if you thought Godzilla vs. Kong was nuts...well, this sneak peek makes that movie look positively tame in comparison.

The MonsterVerse has fully embraced its sci-fi routes, a big change from the grounded Godzilla movie Gareth Edwards delivered nearly a decade ago. 

In this sneak peek, we discover that Hollow Earth is home to countless creatures like Kong. However, with the villainous Skar King looking to rule over them, Kong - and later Godzilla - find themselves going toe-to-toe with the villain both deep beneath the surface and in some familiar locations across the globe.

He appears to be a formidable threat (he'd have to be to take them both on), though we can't help wondering whether the mysterious Skar King will end up getting backup from other familiar Titans pulled from the TOHO catalogue.

Check out this new trailer and poster for Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire below (via SFFGazette.com).

The epic battle continues!  Legendary Pictures' cinematic Monsterverse follows up the explosive showdown of 'Godzilla vs. Kong' with an all-new adventure that pits the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence—and our own. 'Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire' delves further into the histories of these Titans and their origins, as well as the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond, while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and tied them to humankind forever.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire stars returning Godzilla vs. Kong actors Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, and Kaylee Hottle alongside Dan Stevens (Legion), Alex Ferns (The Batman), and Fala Chen (Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings).

The screenplay is by Terry Rossio (Godzilla vs. Kong) and Simon Barrett (You’re Next) and Jeremy Slater (Moon Knight), from a story by Rossio & Wingard & Barrett, based on the character "Godzilla" owned and created by TOHO Co., Ltd.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire rampages into theaters on March 29.

Godzilla & Kong is a Transformers movie now, Michael Bay would be proud, but he would add a few whores

First trailer although shit, looked liked there could have been something there worth seeing. This trailer proved me wrong. It looks just as bad as the other films that came after 2014

I like the structure they've introduced at the start: Titans like Godzilla being charged with protecting nature makes a lot of sense looking back at the franchise's history while Kong protects humanity.

The “signals” they found in the form of those portals make some remember of the “rabbit holes” aka wormholes that Monarch: Legacy of Monsters explained in full detail to enter their Hollow Earth realm.

Skar King seems to be the one that injured Kong's hand, leading to him borrowing that gauntlet.

My favourite frames are the one of Godzilla underwater in it's "rose mode".



And the tease of Shimo. Almost felt like staring at a Blue-Eyed White Dragon with the way it's eyes are shaped.



Kong's reaction at seeing it literally was a “not built for this" moment.



And the poster goes quite hard, if only they were allowed to show Shimo we could surely get a mirror poster of Skar King & it charging forward as well.

I really don't see the point of adding humans to the story. I know studios want people to connect. But the people want 90mins of these things kicking the shit out of each other 🤣🤣🤣

This looks dumber than the first one. Sequelitus syndrome on full display; more monsters, more weapons for kong, more variants to sell toys, more more more. I don't know, I'm not feeling this at all. Especially after Godzilla Minus One.

lazlodaytona - 2/15/2024, 4:43 AM
@EgoEgor - yup. as the trailer goes it just keeps getting dumb & dumber to

@lazlodaytona - that's pretty much, you either like over the top-ness of it all or you hate it. I don't like it personally.

@RitoRevolto - Mothra is in the film you see a glimpse of her in Jia's eye.

@lazlodaytona - I'd take anything over more Kong and friends at this point.

RitoRevolto - 2/15/2024, 9:43 AM
@Godzilla2000Zer - Hmm ok! That's a real blink-and-you-miss-it frame. Hopefully they don't wait until the last 20 minutes to have her return.

Looked better and more fun than the Deadpool teaser. Which isn't saying much. It's crazy watching the quality of the CGI in this vs say any recent MCU film. This is such a CGI heavy film and easy to F up but CGI looks really good whereas MCU movies look like TV shows.

FWIW Deadpool & Wolverine is like at the top of my most hyped and anticipated movies of maybe all time. But that teaser was awful. Felt like a Deadpool teaser with that awful MCU stank.

Oh my gosh! Here comes a giant cgi fight!

Looks fun , I’ll check it out!!.

Dan Stevens seems to be playing a charismatic character with an actual personality in this which already makes him one of the better humans in this universe lol.
