The film, which was shot in Queensland, Australia, is presently in the final phases of editing and post-production. While the focus remains on Godzilla and Kong’s epic battle, new human faces such as Dan Stevens and Fala Chen will join the ensemble in this episode, titled Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire.
The Latest Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire News
Due to scheduling issues induced by the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, Godzilla vs. Kong 2 has been pushed back to April 12, 2024.
The film was shot in Queensland, Australia, and is currently in post-production and editing.
The focus of Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire will be on the titular monsters, but there will be some new human characters joining the ensemble, including Dan Stevens and Fala Chen.
The goal was simple: set the setting for the titanic confrontation between these two titans on the big screen in 2021. However, no further MonsterVerse sequels were confirmed prior to the release, possibly to keep the projected winner a surprise. As Godzilla vs. Kong finishes with both monsters claiming dominion—Godzilla as the Alpha Titan and Kong governing the Hollow Earth—they return for the ultimate fight in Godzilla vs. Kong 2. The release date for Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire has been announced, and people are excited for the gigantic kaiju fight that is sure to shock the big screen.
Fresh Updates on Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire
The full-length teaser for Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire premiered in early December, revealing a young ape monster, a collaborative effort between Kong and Godzilla against a mysterious third threat (resembling another giant ape), and intriguing insights into Kong’s background and the beginnings of Earth. The trailer also includes people and a resurrected Godzilla, who emerges from beneath the ice with a stunning new power highlighted by glowing red spikes.
Godzilla vs. Kong: The New Empire was shot in Southeast Queensland and on the Gold Coast. After the arduous editing and post-production phase is completed, the monsters and CGI for the screen will be properly crafted. Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire’s official release date has been pushed back to April 12, 2024, from March 15th.
Following the end of filming in Southeast Queensland and the Gold Coast, the official release date for Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire has been delayed to April 12, 2024.
Brian Tyree Henry returns as the ever-inquisitive Bernie Hayes, who delves into Monarch’s undercover operations alongside Madison Russell and Josh Valentine in Godzilla vs. Kong. Rebecca Hall as Dr. Ilene Andrews, the linguist interested in Kong’s study on Skull Island, and Kaylee Hottle as Jia, her adopted daughter, join the returning cast. Fala Chen (from Shang Chi) is one of the newcomers, bringing her talent to an unspecified job. Alex Ferns (from Andor) and Rachel House (from Thor: Ragnarok) join the cast, adding to the unique dynamics of this titanic clash.
“New Revelations Unveil Godzilla x Kong:
The New Empire’s Villain and Alliance!
In the upcoming epic, Godzilla and Kong join forces against a formidable threat, a villainous Titan wielding stolen power from the Hollow Earth temple. To preserve harmony, the iconic Titans must unite against this adversary, promising a deeper dive into Adam Wingard’s vision of the Hollow Earth and an epic clash for the ages.”
It appears the ape Titan might wield powers akin to Godzilla’s. While Godzilla draws power from blue atomic energy, granting him the iconic atomic breath—something Kong lacks—the Hollow Earth’s connection suggests a possibility. It’s plausible that a Kong descendant accessed this power source within the temple, potentially triggering the Titan War, marking a pivotal turn in their saga.
The trailer may have shown more than was intended. The scene is dominated by a powerful Titan among bones, with piercing blue eyes. The glowing skulls of Kong’s species and a Godzillasaurus are shown as the camera pans out, culminating in the film’s title amidst a tremendous roar. Before a quick transition to black, the new villain’s intense blue-eyed look captures the screen.
