About Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire Movie:

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire is an American monster film directed by Adam Wingard. Produced by Legendary Pictures and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, it is a sequel to Godzilla vs. Kong (2021), and the fifth film in the MonsterVerse. It is also the 38th film of the Godzilla franchise, the 13th film in the King Kong franchise, and the fifth Godzilla film to be completely produced by an American film studio.

The film stars Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Dan Stevens, Kaylee Hottle, Alex Ferns, and Fala Chen. Hall, Henry and Hottle reprise their roles from the previous film. In the film, Godzilla and Kong must unite against an undiscovered threat that threatens the Hollow Earth and the surface.

Because of the box office and streaming success of Godzilla vs. Kong during the COVID-19 pandemic, Legendary announced a sequel in March 2022 and that filming would commence later in the year.

In May 2022, it was announced that Wingard would return to direct and Stevens had been cast as a lead. Filming began in July 2022 in Gold Coast, Queensland, and finished in November 2022.

Principal photography commenced in Gold Coast, Queensland, on July 29, 2022. At the start of production, Ben Seresin was confirmed to have returned as director of photography. In November 2022, it was reported that filming had finished in Australia and that crew gear revealed the film’s potential title, at the time, as Godzilla and Kong.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire was previously slated for March 15 and April 12, 2024. In January 2024, the film’s theatrical release date in the United States was moved to March 29, taking over the date set for Mickey 17. Consequently, Toho’s Godzilla film Godzilla Minus One (2023) was withdrawn from U.S. theaters eight weeks before Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire is set to open. The film is also presently scheduled to be released internationally on March 27, 2024, and Toho released the film in Japan on April 26, 2024.
