The clouds on the horizon are clearing and the storm that was about to overwhelm Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures seems to have been averted and so, in the end, Godzilla vs Kong is preparing to debut in the cinema, and on HBO Max, even earlier than expected.
Deadline writes that the monster movie made in partnership between the two companies will be released earlier than expected, no longer on May 21st, but on March 26th. Warner would even have blocked the offer made by Netflix which had placed well over 200 million dollars on the bench to buy the streaming distribution rights of Godzilla vs Kong.
Already days ago it was revealed that the negotiations between Warner and Legendary were well underway. And in reporting the news we had if anything focused on the fact that given an agreement capable of providing the exclusivity of the film release not so much for Godzilla vs Kong, as for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, a precedent could have been created for other filmmakers, first of all, Lana Wachowski, with her director of Matrix 4
The film will see two of the greatest icons in film history, one against the other – the terrifying Godzilla and the mighty Kong – while mankind will watch in the balance.
The film is directed by Adam Wingard (“The Guest”, “You’re Next”), starring Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Shun Oguri, Eiza González Jessica Henwick, Julian Dennison, starring Kyle Chandler and Demián Bichir.
This is the synopsis:
At a time when monsters lived on Earth, mankind fights for its future, putting Godzilla and Kong on a collision course, a meeting that will see two of nature’s most powerful forces clash in one of the most spectacular battles ever. When Monarch embarks on a dangerous mission to uncharted lands, he unearths the traces of the origins of the Titans, and it is then that a human conspiracy threatens to destroy all creatures, good and evil, from the face of the Earth forever.
Wingard directs from a screenplay by Terry Rossio (“Pirates of the Caribbean”). The film is produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Eric McLeod, and Brian Rogers, with Kenji Okuhira, Yoshimitsu Banno, Jon Jashni, and Thomas Tull serving as executive producers. Jay Ashenfelter, Jen Conroy, and Tamara Kent are the co-producers.
