The trailer for the first blockbuster of 2021 has arrived.

If you’ve been paying attention to Warner Brothers monster movie universe in recent years – 2014’s Godzilla, 2017’s Kong: Skull Island, and 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters – then you’ve probably guessed that this was the way the series was heading, with the two main monsters going head to head.

And now here we are, in the form of 2021’s first BIG blockbuster just two months out.

The official plot synopsis from Warner Brothers is as follows:

“Legends collide as Godzilla and Kong, the two most powerful forces of nature, clash on the big screen in a spectacular battle for the ages. As a squadron embarks on a perilous mission into fantastic uncharted terrain, unearthing clues to the Titans’ very origins and mankind’s survival, a conspiracy threatens to wipe the creatures, both good and bad, from the face of the earth forever.”

Directed by Adam Wingard (The Guest, Blair Witch), the movie brings together some of the cast from the previous Godzilla movie (Millie Bobby Brown, Kyle Chandler) with some famous new faces: Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies), Rebecca Hall (Iron Man 3), Brian Tyree Henry (Joker), Eiza González (Hobbs & Shaw), Jessica Henwick (Game of Thrones), Julian Dennison (Hunt for the Wilderpeople), and Demián Bichir (Alien: Covenant).

The movie is set to debut in the States on March 26 this year, and we’ll have to see if cinemas are Ireland have re-opened by then before we get a confirmed release date.
