Next ‘Godzilla x Kong’ Movie Gets Title

The title of the sequel to the 2021 monster battle, “Godzilla Vs. Kong,” was released Wednesday, and it’s “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire.” The film’s producer Legendary tweeted “The #Monsterverse continues” with a brief teaser showing the fearsome reptile facing off against the massive primate.

Rebecca Hall and Brian Tyree Henry, who appeared in “Godzilla vs. Kong,” return for the sequel, with Dan Stevens joining the cast. Adam Wingard returns to direct. “Godzilla vs. Kong” grossed $470 million worldwide, a healthy sum when many moviegoers were still hesitant to return to theaters in the midst of the pandemic. It was released simultaneously on HBO Max, causing controversy when Legendary was not on board with the early streaming release.

It’s the fifth entry in Legendary’s MonsterVerse, which kicked off with the rebooted “Godzilla” in 2014, then the new “Kong: Skull Island” in 2017, then introduced some of Godzilla’s most fearsome enemies, like Mothra, King Ghidora and Rodan, in “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” in 2019 and finally brought the two titans of cinema together in “Godzilla vs. Kong.” There’s also a “Skull Island” anime series coming to Netflix and a live-action “Godzilla and the Titans” series coming to Apple TV+ with Kurt Russell, Wyatt Russell and Kiersey Clemons among the cast.
