Adam Wingard, director of the successful previous installment, brought together a good part of the previous film (Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Hnery, Kaylee Hottle), with new signatures from Dan Stevens, Alex Ferns, and Fala Chen.
But the stars are monsters again, now more than ever. After the discovery of Hollow Earth in the previous film, the home of Kong (or his descendants), a new threat emerges, which appears to be an old Kong.
Kong must protect his people (including a “Baby Kong”) and seek help from Godzilla to wake up from his sleep in Antarctica to fight new animals in Rio de Janeiro or Egypt.
Godzilla and Kong: The New Empire will be released in April 2024, ten years after the release of Godzilla: Gareth Edwards.
The saga has evolved from focusing on human drama to giant monsters, at least in the big event films, because at the same time the series was broadcast on Apple TV + Monarch: Legacy of the Monsters, which will bring all these films together. If you lack a lot of monsters, on April 12, you will have good help with Godzilla and Kong: The New Empire.
