The trailer of the highly anticipated Godzilla vs Kong is out. The lead cast of Alexander Skarsgård and Millie Bobby Brown promises to be a feast for the eyes, especially with his excitement over the massive battle between Godzilla and Kong.
Adam Wingard’s direction appears to have a predictable plot, projecting Kong as that nourishing mother figure who vows to protect a human child after forming an improbable, unfathomable bond with her. Godzilla is the big bad guy who put his heart on the destruction of the planet. Humans and Kong team up to outsmart Godzilla’s indefinable strength. But the million dollar question is whether they will succeed.
Despite the somewhat predictable narrative, it’s hard not to be amazed by the huge animals. As the synopsis rightly says, they appear to be “mythical”. If nothing else, at least Gozilla will entertain us versus Kong and, as a by-product, will help revitalize Hollywood with its big box office. At least that’s the hope.
The film’s official synopsis reads: “Legends collide against Kong in Godzilla, while these mythical opponents meet in a spectacular battle for eternity, with the fate of the world balanced. Kong and his protectors take a dangerous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphan girl with whom he has forged a unique and strong bond. But they’re unexpectedly on the path of an angry Godzilla who is cutting through some of the world’s destruction. The epic clash between the two titans – triggered by invisible forces – is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep in the earth’s core. “
Godzilla vs Kong will be released later this year.
