Upcoming movie by Adam Wingard titled Godzilla vs. Kong is an American remake of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. It's the third film in Legendary's MonsterVerse series, and the second of the Godzilla films. In 2021, the Japanese film artist Toho had made a version of Godzilla vs. Kong for the Academy Award Awards. This time around, Legendary Pictures opted not to release it in the United States. But it can be enjoyed through online DVD distributors like Netflix and Hulu.
In Godzilla vs. Kong, a group of scientists travel to Japan to do research on a giant monster that has been destroying marine life. Godzilla is determined to destroy this monster before it takes over the world. As such, he sends his Godzilla Request (which is actually a radio call) to the US scientists to gather information about Godzilla. The US scientists agree to gather more information, but Dr. Serizawa (Japanese actor Noriaki Koizumi) decides that since Godzilla is so huge, he will destroy the lab instead. Meanwhile, Godzilla is ramping up his campaign to rid the world of evil creatures once and for all...
One month later, two unidentified military pilots were flying out of the Pacific Ocean with a very important piece of information - they spotted something on the radar screen. This piece of information turned out to be Godzilla. Godzilla vs. Kong gives us our first look at Godzilla from a completely fresh perspective, as he appears on the shores of Japan a month before the attack on South Kong. This makes the Godzilla vs. Kong movie one of the most interesting monster movies of late, because it allows audiences to see Godzilla through the eyes (and voice) of a new character.
In an interesting sequence after the plane crash, a Japanese girl named Ayame (Nobuyuki Sanada) comes forward claiming to have had a sighting of Godzilla many years ago. This girl also tells of how she and other local residents witnessed Godzilla attacking another monster some time before he suddenly attacked her and destroyed the village (surprising many who thought the monsters were simply ordinary swarms of insect-like creatures). Now, Sanada is determined to get the story out to the world and enlist the help of her friend Dr. Serizawa who happens to be a world-recognized authority on researching monsters and their powers. In order to get the job done, Sanada contacts Dr. Yuna (Karen Allen) who happens to own a research facility whose clients include the military. Together they orchestrate a plan to take advantage of what the locals know about Godzilla and use it to combat the monster.
The actual battle with Godzilla takes place at a hilly region in Tanegas called Mt. Godzilla where the King Kong is believed to reside. When Godzilla attacks again, the Tanegas residents beg him to save them so as not to suffer as he scorches the land and rocks, causing massive destruction in Tanegas and its nearby villages. In order to protect the humans in the town, Godzilla creates a hybrid creature known as Megaroador which is capable of destroying anything in its path. While Godzilla uses his skills to drive Megaroador into retirement, the real Megaroador (Toho's Godzilla replacement) makes its way into the city and fights Godzilla in a monumental battle for supremacy. Finally, Godzilla melts down the ice surrounding Mt. Godzilla forcing the human population to build a refuge there in order to avoid the radiation that's emitted when Godzilla blows up the mountain.
With a number of Hollywood talents involved in directing, producing, and acting in this summer's release of King Kong vs. Godzilla, there's no doubt this blockbuster will garner some attention in the near future. Legendary Pictures and Universal Studios have were hiring on a number of renowned Hollywood screenwriters and producers in order to pen the screenplay for this highly anticipated King Kong vs. Godzilla movie, so there is no doubt the film will be headed to the silver screen soon.
