New GODZILLA X KONG Movie Gets Official Title, Rad Reveal Animation

The last battle between Godzilla and Kong in the aptly named Godzilla vs. Kong ended, expectedly, in a draw. Kong took his place as ruler of the Hollow Earth while Godzilla returned to the ocean to continue doing whatever he wants. He’s Godzilla; are you gonna tell him what to do? But we knew a rematch/reteam was on the horizon, we just didn’t know the name. Until now. Coming in 2024, Warner Bros. and Legendary present the ominous Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire. There’s even a nifty little animation to go along with it.

The official press release promises a new threat that neither Titan will be able to face alone. Therefore, they’ll have to team up, won’t they? The movie “will transport audiences into the unexplored depths of a brave new world of spectacular new monsters, heroic adventurers, and awe-inspiring set pieces on a scale unlike anything ever seen before. This promises to be a true cinematic spectacle that demands to be seen on the biggest screens possible.” The MonsterVerse is looking good.

Adam Wingard returns to direct Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire with his longtime collaborator Simon Barrett writing the screenplay. Returning cast members include Rebecca Hall as Dr. Ilene Andrews, Brian Tyree Henry as fan-favorite Bernie Hayes, and Kaylee Hottle as Jia. Also joining the cast of Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire is Dan Stevens, Fala Chen, and Rachel House. 

The skulls of Godzilla and Kong rest in the foreground as a new, unseen threat looms in the background of the teaser for Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire.

The two Titans team up when Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire hits theaters March 15, 2024.
