Godzilla met King Kong in 2021, and they at first didn’t like each other, but have learned to get along. According to the latest trailer for Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, that friendship turned out to be a good thing — looks like Earth would’ve been screwed without it.
How and why is there so much Godzilla news coming out at once? There’s a new Toho movie, there’s a first-of-its-kind English translation of the original book coming, and now we’re hearing of a Godzilla TV show on the way for Apple TV+.
Godzilla X Kong is the long-awaited sequel to Godzilla vs. Kong. The plot remains a top-secret, but the title screams an alliance instead of another fight. We saw these Titans fight each other. Now we will see them work together. The movie introduces a new Kaiju, who will be the main threat in this movie. Rather than utilizing a Monster from Old Japanese Kaiju movies, they bring back the Big 2.
Ultraman, one of Japan’s oldest kaiju characters, is about to come back to life in a new adventure. Shin Ultraman will screen tonight and tomorrow night in US theaters courtesy of Fathom Events, but if you miss that showing or you prefer your Japanese superheroes as a home viewing experience, there’s good news: a deal has been reached to distribute the film to home formats next spring.
Godzilla vs. King kong lost its chances to be a box office giant because of Covid 19. Dreams of this film having worldwide cinematic glory is all gone. This crossover Kaiju film is actually a remake of a 1962 Japanese movie King Kong vs Godzilla. That Kaiju battle is a classic but seeing it in modern special effects would be an interesting spectacle.
