This year's CCXP event gets underway in São Paulo, Brazil this weekend, and will include panels from Warner Bros., Netflix, Apple TV+, and Paramount, with plenty of immersive fan experiences and exclusive content.

The most anticipated trailer for Kaiju fans is, of course, Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, which is expected to screen during WB/Legendary's panel on December 3 before being released online shortly after.

We may get a brief confirmation teaser before then, but for now, Legendary has shared some new promo posters and banners to its social media platforms, which you can take a look at below.

There's nothing too exciting, but we do get some new shots of the King of Skull Island's signature hand prints, as well as concept art of both iconic Titans roaring into battle.



UPDATE: Legendary has now unveiled the first official theaterical poster for Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire, and it looks like Kong has designs on the current King of the Monsters' crown!

We still don't know a whole lot about Adam Wingard's sequel to the hugely successful Godzilla vs. Kong, but it has been confirmed that the legendary monsters will be teaming up from the get-go this time in order to defend the planet against a mysterious threat that's emerged from Hollow Earth.

There's been speculation that the King of Skull Island and Big G will face-off against Mecha-King Ghidorah after the events of the last film, but nothing has been confirmed. There have also been reports of an "unidentified simian monster," which might well turn out to be the Son of Kong.

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.

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."

Principal photography commenced in Gold Coast, Queensland, on July 29, 2022, and officially wrapped last November. The film is scheduled to be theatrically released on April 12, 2024 after previously being slated for a March 15, 2024.

I am not into the idea of them teaming up to fight a big oragutan (if thats actually the premise), yet I am strangely excited for this. I am just happy to be living out the dreams of my 8 year old self by being able to see these monsters still being in movies. Especially big budget movies like this.
rychlec - 11/29/2023, 10:14 AM
@Shivermetimbers - Me too!!

Monarch is pretty damn solid so far. Love the 1950’s story. The 2015 story isn’t nearly as strong since the younger actors are all cringy and Monarch are lame goon fodder. Kurt Russell is carrying that 2015 story by himself. The monsters are all great though and this is overall a better human story than any of the Godzilla or Kong movies ever tell. I do wish it could just 100% be about the early origins of Monarch in the 50’s as that is by far the best part.
Batmangina - 11/29/2023, 12:07 PM
@mountainman - Agreed. The flashback shit is great - the father/son old/young gimmick is actually brilliant and I thought it was going to be shitty.

The DEI exGF in 2015 is lame AF. I'm SURE there are TONS of edgy black chicks in Tokyo that are tech geniuses but YIKES.

PS: Of course there could be more monsters in Monarch. That's a [frick]ing given in any monster movie.
mountainman - 11/29/2023, 12:30 PM
@Batmangina - Yeah black female tech genius in Japan is an odd choice that could only be dreamt up in a writer’s room. Although, I will say the other two younger characters are actually more annoying.

I do see that potentially changing as the guy becomes more assertive and the girl has that blossoming grandpa/granddaughter thing going with Russel’s character.
Batmangina - 11/29/2023, 12:49 PM
@mountainman - In the interest of keeping with my onsite character, I will give the lead actress a pass because she is hot AF.

The surprise half brother kid is a bit wooden. His living in Japan with accent free English and acting like a NYC Gen Zer is also a bit much.

Matt Fraction aka Mr. Kelly Sue DeConnick explains a lot of the younger characterization IMO.
mountainman - 11/29/2023, 1:05 PM
@Batmangina - Agreed on all points. I just find myself loving the 1950’s sequences, and not enjoying the 2015 ones nearly as much.

That monster in Alaska was super cool though and main girl’s PTSD flashbacks to the San Fransisco attack were very well done.
BlackSpider - 11/29/2023, 6:03 PM
@Batmangina - Onsite character, lol wtf.
Batmangina - 11/29/2023, 6:56 PM
@BlackSpider - I get accused of not liking anything. It's not MY fault most shit today is DEI garbage that sucks giant dicks.
BlackSpider - 11/29/2023, 7:00 PM
@Batmangina - Sure

Not sure im excited for them to fight an evil version of Kong but i will still be seeing this opening weekend regardless
Scarilian - 11/29/2023, 10:22 AM
Hopefully the reports of more monsters is true, because them fighting evil Kong is not interesting enough. Could be fun if it focuses on the action though.
EZBeast - 11/29/2023, 10:31 AM
@Scarilian - I can assure you there are multiple opponents in this. How many I’m not sure but definitely more than just the scar king (the orangutan)
garu - 11/29/2023, 10:41 AM
Kong will become KING and the OST is gonna SLAP
DalekCraigWasson - 11/29/2023, 5:02 PM
@garu - Godzilla vs. Kong's OST was godawful after Bear McCreary's much better KotM score.
garu - 11/29/2023, 5:32 PM
@DalekCraigWasson - Ah yeah, I honestly missed his rendition of Godzilla's theme.

Naoki Sato's score for Godzilla Minus One is miles better, though I think Kong's theme was quite good in the GvK score.
DalekCraigWasson - 11/29/2023, 9:09 PM
@garu - Yeah, it had some bright spots. Just generally not a big Tom Hollkenborg fan. I just want some OG themes. I'd love to hear Max Steiner's 1933 Kong theme to come back.
SirDuckAlot - 11/29/2023, 10:48 AM
I want to see aliens already. Set up Space Godzilla or Destoroyah
MotherGooseUPus - 11/29/2023, 11:08 AM
@SirDuckAlot - i agree with this 1000%
Ha1frican - 11/29/2023, 3:28 PM
@SirDuckAlot - Didn’t they already do that by having Ghidorah in KOTM. I could be wrong but I’m pretty sure they said he was from space
DalekCraigWasson - 11/29/2023, 9:10 PM
@Ha1frican - Yes, it is revealed Ghidorah is not a natural predator of Earth, but a completely foreign element in the ecosystem.
Gabimaru - 11/29/2023, 11:13 AM
@EZBeast - Damn that some alpha look of him now
JobinJ - 11/29/2023, 3:50 PM
@EZBeast - that's from a toy box.
DalekCraigWasson - 11/29/2023, 9:11 PM
@EZBeast - I remember the director saying he would have tweaked Godzilla's design more if GvK had longer to come out (remember it was originally going to come out one year after KOTM!).
Godzilla2000Zer - 11/29/2023, 10:52 AM
