Talking about the legendary clash between these icons, director Adam Wingard says, “This is a battle that hasn`t been waged since 1962, so for us, it was like, it`s gotta be the most definitive version and the most satisfying version of these two monsters coming together. In doing that and knowing that everybody has got their favourite, we had to ensure to satisfy both their supporters. They both have their unique special powers and weaknesses…so that`s all taken into consideration. For us, it was most important that this is the most epic battle of all time.”
The movie focuses on Kong and his protectors, who undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. They, however, unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe.
Godzilla vs. Kong is produced by Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Entertainment.
