Godzilla vs. Kong trailer hit the floor just recently and has taken the people by storm. Even though the trailer shows a lot of footage, they did a good job in maintaining the main plot a mystery. Just like any other project that was delayed or had to come to a halt with production due to the coronavirus pandemic, Godzilla vs. Kong was moved up the roster and had its release date preponed to March 26, 2021. Earlier, the date was May 21, 2021. The movie will be available in the theatres and on HBO Max for streaming.
Godzilla vs Kong is rated PG-13 and is described in the following manner, “In a new world where man and monster now coexist, Monarch must lead the way to a prosperous future alongside the Titans, keeping humanity in check. However, rival factions that want to manipulate the Titans for war begin to rise under the guise of a nefarious conspiracy, threatening to wipe out all life on the planet. Meanwhile, on Skull Island, strange seismic activity draws the attention of Godzilla and Kong alike.”
We see Godzilla coming back, and people particularly wondering why the Godzilla is recklessly hurting people. In the trailer, we can also see a particular team working towards solving the said mystery. This trailer definitely has to be one of the craziest ones out there, mainly because it shows the many sides of both the characters – Godzilla, and Kong. It is pretty clear that the world is basically depending on Kong to save them from destruction.
There were a lot of easter eggs in the show, and we have done an intense trailer breakdown for our readers to enjoy. But here, we will focus on one of the many hints that have got our attention, and that is the welcoming of Mechagodzilla. Yes, you heard it right, we might just see the ferocious Godzilla’s nemesis, MechaGodzilla, in action against the mighty King Of Monsters, Godzilla. There are theories that suggest that Skullcrawler is also making its way back to the plot and that in the end, Godzilla and Kong would have to team up. Other theories suggest that this is where one of the beasts will be put to the rest by the other. The teaser also hints at the ancient myths and history of the ‘war’ that took place. More surprisingly, we also see Kong use a deadly ax during the battle, an ax that can absorb Godzilla’s atomic breath.
A little over halfway into the Godzilla vs. Kong trailer, right after Kong dodges Godzilla’s atomic breath, Ren Serizawa (Shun Oguri) is shown standing in front of a large screen displaying a schematic. A text box is blocking most of the screen, but the outline of Mechagodzilla is clearly visible. This implies that Ren Serizawa, the son of Ishirō Serizawa (Ken Watanabe), could be the creator of MonsterVerse’s Mechagodzilla, possibly in collaboration with Monarch. This could also explain Godzilla’s rampage.
As the King of Monsters, Godzilla has, to varying degrees, maintaining a balance between humans, kaiju, and Earth. Godzilla would no doubt be infuriated that humans had stolen Ghidora’s severed head in King of the Monsters and that they are now creating kaiju of their own. Yet another explanation is that it’s not actually Godzilla terrorizing cities – it’s Mechagodzilla. In the second shot of the trailer, there’s a brief glimpse of a monster that could be Mechagodzilla. A metallic-looking, Godzilla-like kaiju rampages through a city and appears to glow red, but the MonsterVerse’s Godzilla glows blue.
Mechagodzilla’s possible appearance in Godzilla vs. Kong has already been speculated by fans since rumors have been floating around for a while now. Though Mechagodzilla was originally written as an extraterrestrial being, subsequent films depicted the giant, Godzilla-like creature as synthetic kaiju manufactured by humans. On that same note, Mechagodzilla’s MonsterVerse origin was also hinted at in the trailer.
Earlier there have been speculations on who the real villain is in Godzilla vs Kong. A definitive winner has been confirmed, but it’s hard to say if it will be Godzilla or Kong who takes home the glory. Because of Godzilla vs. Kong’s human villains, Kong could become bait for Godzilla. If so, that would set up one of their fights in the upcoming MonsterVerse movie. Similar to Godzilla: King of the Monsters and many other Godzilla movies, the 2021 film could feature more than one fight between the central Titans.
Yes, you need to block your calendars for the above-mentioned date, and make sure you DO NOT miss out on this epic showdown!
