Godzilla vs Kong is the fourth entry in the MonsterVerse, a cinematic universe populated by iconic movie monsters. Produced by Legendary Entertainment, the films are co-produced and distributed by Warner Bros.
We don’t know the reason, but in the trailer, Godzilla appears to be destroying a city and indiscriminately killing people. Godzilla has so far been portrayed as a force for good in the MonsterVerse, and no one can guess what drove him crazy. But the world still has someone who can stand against it. Enter Kong.
But before we watch the movie, here’s a quick recap.
The MonsterVerse started with Godzilla in 2014. The 1950s nuclear tests were overt attempts to kill Godzilla in the film. The villains were MUTOs or unidentified massive earth organisms, insect-like monsters that feed on radiation.
The film also introduced Monarch, a secret government organization whose job it is to find, study, and hunt MUTOs. Two MUTOs are unleashed into the world and go on a rampage, prompting a sleeping ancient alpha predator to emerge from the depths of the ocean. Godzilla ultimately beats MUTOs, but barely.
There are human characters here too, with their own Godzilla-related stories, but who watches monster movies for humans?
2. Kong: Skull Island
Kong: Skull Island was the second iteration of the MonsterVerse. He introduced the giant Kong monkey. A group of modest soldiers, a former SAS member, Monarch officials, and scientists set out for a remote island believed to be the home of a giant monster. They arrive and enrage Kong by bombarding the surface of the island. He appears and kills several members of the group. Their bombardments awaken creatures called Skull-Crawlers that live underground. One of them was responsible for the murder of Kong’s family. It’s personal.
Before the end, Kong, with the help of his human friends, defeated the greatest of the Skull Crawlers by ripping out his tongue.
3. Godzilla: King of the Monsters
The next MonsterVerse film was Godzilla: King of the Monsters, which remains the only film criticized in the cinematic universe. It was also a box office bomb.
In the movie, Godzilla faced off against King Ghidorah (a three-headed dragon, who is an alien creature). Several other Godzilla staples like Rodan and Mothra were also there. While the battles were well received, the rest of the film was deemed absurd.
In the end, Godzilla had become the undisputed King of the Monsters.
Godzilla vs Kong will be released on March 24 in India.
