‘One will fall’
On January 24th, 2021 – various web sources spotted what appears to be Mechagodzilla at the start of a trailer!
Previously, we reported that the release of Godzilla vs. Kong had moved two months forward to March 26th 2021 when it will be simultaneously released theatrically and on HBO Max, as part of their new deal, announced in December, to send its entire 2021 slate to the streaming service.
Previously, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Warners was finalising a deal with Legendary, its partner on the movie, with respect to the release of the $165 million-plus tentpole to allow it to be part of the HBO Max release. Legendary financed 75 per cent of the film, but Warners controls the movie’s release and had apparently nixed a $225 million offer from Netflix.
Godzilla vs. Kong is a 2021 American science-fiction action film that pits two of the greatest screen monsters against one another. Meanwhile, humanity is caught in the conflab.
