The Titans Team Up In New Trailer For ‘Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire’

The Former Titan Adversaries Team Up To Take Down A New Threat

Warner Bros and Legendary released the first full trailer of the next Monsterverse film, Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire. The synopsis of the film shows that as Kong explores his new home in the Hollow Earth, he discovers a new tribe of Titans that is led by the antagonistic Scar King, the crimson-furred ape Titan shown in the teaser. Meanwhile, Godzilla seems to be undergoing a radical transformation to prepare for the next battle alongside Kong.

What’s In The Trailer

There are several shots of holes and entrances being made into the Hollow Earth, and Kong is shown fully acclimated to his new home when he suddenly comes across an Ape titan child. There is then a revelation that a family of Kong-like Titans have survived in a different region of the Hollow Earth led by a menacing ape known as the Scar King.

The trailer then shifts to the dangers and crises that are happening on the surface and Godzilla going through a dramatic change that’ll give him some kind of power boost. Not much else is revealed except Godzilla’s new form, Kong finding the surviving Ape titans, and the two of them charging together into an unknown battle.

Kong’s Struggles And Godzilla’s New Form

Kong is shown having a very Planet Of The Apes-style interaction with the Ape Titans, clearly having confusion about how to interact with them and their leader. The Monsterverse has established that Kong is the last member of his family from Skull Island, so seeing him interacting with other Ape Titans will be heartwarming and tear-jerking since a clear conflict for him is finding a way to fit into the family.

Godzilla has undergone one of the most dramatic evolutions shown in the series after seemingly absorbing a new kind of energy in an ice glacier. Instead of just getting bigger and his spine changing shape, Godzilla’s arms are beefier, and his body appears slimmer in several shots. His new pink coloration for the spines and breath attack, along with his muscular appearance, is actually very similar to Godzilla’s appearance in the film Godzilla 2000 and the Pipework video game trilogy showing that iteration of Godzilla. It’s unknown if this is Godzilla’s new permanent look or if it’s some kind of super form Godzilla is known to have in other incarnations.

The Beautiful Duality Of Godzilla

After the release of Godzilla Minus One and its incredible reception, along with the well-grounded Monarch series on Apple, fans of the franchise are spoiled for all kinds of new content. It seems almost planned out that in the midst of Toho’s film release and near the midway point of the show, the trailer for Godzilla and Kong’s next adventure was released with all the insane action expected from the Monsterverse. Godzilla has a way of having serious, thought-provoking films and fun-loving Kaiju brawls popular throughout the character’s history. 

The trailer from Legendary and Warner Brother’s channels can be watched on YouTube, and the film will premiere on April 12, 2024. More mysteries are bound to be revealed about how Godzilla changed and what the intentions of Kong’s new rival are, so stay tuned for more information.
