GODZILLA x KONG: THE NEW EMPIRE Posters Celebrate the Monsterverse Frenemies

Like Batman and Superman, or Woody and Buzz Lightyear, it’s fair to say that Godzilla and Kong didn’t exactly start out as friends. In fact, there is a lot of destroyed real estate to show just how much they did not like each other. But in the upcoming Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, the atomic lizard and the king of Skull Island are, if not friends, then at least frenemies. They are united together to stop an even bigger threat from wreaking havoc on the world. These longtime mortal enemies have finally switched to buddy cops (with the power to level several city blocks).

Now, to celebrate the upcoming release of Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, Mutant is releasing several new posters honoring the pair of iconic kaiju. (Four of the former Creative Directors from Mondo formed the company Mutant, along with SpectreVision.) Each of these new Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire posters goes on sale on Thursday, March 28. The sale starts at 10am PT/12pm CT/1pm ET. You can order them at  madebymutant.com. Check out the images and details for each new poster below.

Will this new partnership between iconic monsters last? With their history of rivalry, we’d say probably not. We expect these two to go back to throwing each other into buildings at any minute. So we say enjoy this Lethal Weapon version of Godzilla and Kong while it lasts. And with these new Godzilla x Kong posters from Mutant, you’ll always have something commemorating that one time that these two put their issues aside and decided something else needed to get beat up more than each other.
