Godzilla and Kong have been the ultimate movie franchise that has dominated the animal monsters genre. With 35 films in Godzilla franchise and 11 films in the Kong franchise, none of their movies have ever failed at the box-office. And it seems like Godzilla VS Kong will be another hit example. The movie will be the fourth one in Legendary’s MonsterVerse.
The monster film is directed by Adam Wingard with a screenplay by Eric Pearson and Max Borenstein. The movie was first announced in 2015 when Legendary mentioned the likes of a shared cinematic universe between Godzilla and Kong. It is expected that the movie will perform quite well.

Godzilla VS Kong: What Will The Storyline Look Like?
We have always seen Godzilla and King Kong differently, their enormity, their monstrosity in its complete glory, but nonetheless, separately. Now, with a shared universe (Monarch), when the two monsters will be put against each other, we expect everything to be much bigger.
Director Adam Wingard has made it clear as to how he wants the audience to portray his creation, ‘I really want you to take those characters seriously. I want you to be emotionally invested, not just in the human characters, but actually in the monsters. It’s a massive monster brawl movie’.
He further added as to what the plot will be like, ‘There’s lots of monsters going crazy on each other (this means that there’s going to be more than Godzilla and King Kong), but at the end of the day, I want there to be an emotional drive to it.
I want you to be emotionally invested in them’. Wingard also mentioned that the movie will feature a ‘more rugged, a bit more aged Kong’. Well, we can’t wait to see it!
