Godzilla Vs. Kong: Release Date Unexpectedly Delayed By A Week

Godzilla Vs. Kong

We’re going to have to wait a bit longer to see Godzilla vs Kong. Warner Bros., just days after launching the film’s first action-packed trailer, has decided to delay the release. This is the bad news. The good news is that they’ve only pushed it back for a week, which means it’ll release much earlier than its original release date in 2021. But for those who might have booked a day for enjoying the monster products, plan accordingly.

Godzilla vs. Kong will now arrive both in theaters and on HBO Max on March 31. It was previously scheduled for March 26. But its planned rollout will be the same, in that the massive blockbuster will be used in theaters both in the US and overseas, while also landing on HBO Max in the US, for those who want it. broadcast in the comfort of their homes. Previously, the film was scheduled to arrive on May 21. But Warner Bros. felt it was better to release this one into the world ASAP.

The most recent change comes as No Time to Die, the latest James Bond film, delayed its release from April 2 to October 8. Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, which was also slated for April 2, is now arriving in June. This means Godzilla vs. Kong will have virtually no direct competition. While the box office has been minimal in recent months, it will give the film a seemingly decent chance to rake in dollars.

Director Adam Wingard ( Blair Witch, You’re Next ) is in command of the latest entry in the MonsterVerse. He will follow in the footsteps of the 2019 King of the Monsters. The franchise also includes Godzilla in 2014 and Kong: Skull Island in 2017. The upcoming monster movie will see two of the cinema’s most enduring beasts go head-to-head in a massive spectacle.

Marketing has promised “we’ll fall”, suggesting there will be a definite winner. Although the Godzilla Vs Kong trailer also suggests that there will be another threat thrown in the mix, possibly of the Mechagodzilla variety. Wingard recently said on Instagram, “I know this sounds like a lot, but it’s just the tip of the monster iceberg. So it looks like we still have a lot to learn about this battle for the ages.

Along with the monsters, a stacked A-list human cast is also on board for the film. It includes Alexander Skarsgard, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Shun Oguri, Eiza Gonzalez, Julian Dennison, and Demian Bichir. Millie Bobby Brown and Kyle Chandler also reprise their roles as King of the Monsters. Legendary co-funded the film with Warner Bros. The two were initially at odds when WarnerMedia announced plans to release its entire 2021 slate in theaters and on HBO Max. But they’ve agreed and things will go as planned, a week later than planned.
