Director Adam Wingard’s sequel to the 2021 film Godzilla vs. Kong is officially titled Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire!
Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have announced that the official title of the sequel to 2021’s Godzilla vs. Kong (watch it HERE) is Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire! That announcement comes by way of a title reveal video, which you can check out in the embed above and is said to “foreshadow what lies ahead for the two legendary Titans”.
The fifth film in the Legendary Monsterverse (following Godzilla, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Kong: Skull Island, and the Godzilla / Kong smash-up), Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire is set to reach theaters and IMAX on March 15, 2024.
Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard returns to the helm for the sequel, working from a screenplay written by Simon Barrett (You’re Next) that follows up the explosive showdown of Godzilla vs. Kong with an all-new cinematic adventure, pitting the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence – and our own. The epic new film will delve further into the histories of these Titans, their origins and the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond, while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and tied them to humankind forever.
The story sees the legendary Titans Godzilla and Kong team up to face a world-ending threat so terrifying that neither could survive alone.
We’re previously heard that Terry Rossio (the Pirates of the Caribbean series) and Jeremy Slater (Moon Knight) were also involved in the scripting process.
Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire stars Dan Stevens (The Guest), Fala Chen (Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings), Alex Ferns (Wrath of Man), and Rachel House (Hunt for the Wilderpeople), as well as returning Godzilla vs. Kong cast member Rebecca Hall (The Night House), Brian Tyree Henry (Bullet Train), and Kaylee Hottle, who made her screen acting debut in the Godzilla / Kong movie.
A press release notes that Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire will transport audiences into the unexplored depths of a brave new world of spectacular new monsters, heroic adventurers, and awe-inspiring set pieces on a scale unlike anything ever seen before. This promises to be a true cinematic spectacle that demands to be seen on the biggest screens possible.
