As we saw back when the film’s title was revealed, “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire” introduces a brand-new threat — an ominous-looking, orangutan-like ape Titan that we see sitting on a gigantic throne, surrounded by the skulls and bones of its enemies. As it happens, the bones scattered around the beast include two skulls that look an awful lot like King Kong and Godzilla.
The new trailer expands on this concept and confirms that the MonsterVerse’s two premier Titans will have to join forces against a new enemy that just might be more dangerous than anything they’ve faced before. With “Godzilla vs. Kong” director Adam Wingard once again helming the project and the inimitable Dan Stevens — who worked with Wingard on “The Guest” — starring as the main human protagonist, it certainly seems that the MonsterVerse world is doing better than ever … provided that this world survives the highly destructive events of “The New Empire,” that is.
“Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire” hits theaters on April 12, 2024.
