Godzilla x Kong The New Empire Release Date
Table of Contents
The gigantic animals of the MonsterVerse will make a triumphant comeback to the big screen on April 12, 2024, with the release of Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire. The movie’s original release date was Friday, March 15, 2024, but it has since been postponed due to the ongoing writers’ and actors’ strikes. Moreover, there are still chances of the film’s release date being pushed further, but let’s hope for the best.
The fifth MonsterVerse film to date will be the Godzilla vs. Kong sequel, which was officially announced in March 2022. The MonsterVerse has also grown to include two TV shows since the March 2021 premiere of Godzilla vs. Kong.
The Godzilla X Kong The New Empire unveiling trailer makes it quite apparent that the sequel will make its world premiere only in theatres. The previous movie, Godzilla vs Kong, couldn’t get a proper theater release because of the ongoing global epidemic and ultimately debuted day-and-date on HBO Max with the rest of Warner Bros.’ 2021 film lineup, which is why this is wonderful news for fans.
The creature feature will be released after the March release of the “Ghostbuster Afterlife” sequel, and it will compete with Zack Snyder’s “Rebel Moon: Part Two – The Scargiver.” The sci-fi epic from Snyder will persuade viewers to watch it at home on Netflix, but “The New Empire” will make every effort to get them into cinemas.

Who is the Godzilla x Kong The New Empire Villain?
In the Godzilla x Kong The New Empire title reveal teaser, a mysterious, ape-like entity is seated on a stone throne surrounded by bones. The graveyard of bones is revealed as the camera pans out, revealing two very recognizable skulls: those of Godzilla and Kong. It’s obvious that Godzilla and Kong now have to deal with a terrifying new foe after fighting and calling a cautious truce in the 2021 movie.
Who, then, is this new foe? A number of more surprising revelations regarding the MonsterVerse’s past are built up by the huge villain tease for Godzilla x Kong The New Empire. Though Legendary has refrained from revealing the name of the film’s main antagonist, it is heavily indicated that the monster in question is the one seen in the Godzilla vs. Kong 2 teaser video. All signs point to a member of Kong’s kind as the upcoming Titan to threaten the MonsterVerse.
Godzilla x Kong The New Empire Trailer
By April 2023, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures still hadn’t finished filming the “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire” full trailer. The studios did, however, release a brief, mostly animated teaser and proof of concept for the impending sequel in an effort to generate curiosity and keep potential moviegoers intrigued.
Recently, though, a new poster depicting the two largest creatures in the MonsterVerse fighting side by side surfaced at the New York City Toy Fair.
Kaiju fans will get the chance to experience Godzilla in two new ways prior to the debut of The New Empire thanks to Apple TV+’s Monarch: Legacy of Monsters and the full-length film Godzilla Minus One.
