Godzilla vs. Kong has about an obvious a plot as you can possibly get. Now thanks to Playmates Toys, it seems there’s a bit more to it than just 2 kaiju slugging it out with each other.
“Oh, That Poor CV!” Says No One
You don’t really expect much when you hear a movie is called Godzilla vs. Kong. A big lizard has a standoff with a big gorilla, and that’s all you need to know about the new monster movie from Legendary. It’s a simple enough concept, and yet somehow, it works. It proves that you don’t need a complex plot to attract audiences. Just get 2 giant monsters, and put them in a cage match with each other. It’s like Pacific Rim, but if the giant robots were kaiju too. And yet, it seems Godzilla vs. Kong is determined to go one step further.
It seems that Playmates Toys revealed some new details for the plot of Godzilla vs. Kong when they were releasing their new line of figures for the movie. Since then, fan sites like the above Kaiju News Outlet have retweeted it all over the web. It’s not much to go on, but it does reveal that this new movie will take place in a Hollow Earth, like the one depicted in Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth. It’s probably an intentional reference to that novel, since Verne depicted dinosaurs and other prehistoric life inhabiting the space there. This would be a perfect way for the film to introduce the concept of a parallel world, where kaiju live more or less in peace.
At least, until Godzilla and King Kong show up for their cinematic debut. Then they might have problems.
Well at least we got some new details of Godzilla vs. Kong while we wait for the actual movie to come out. Unfortunately we’re going to have to wait a bit longer to see these kaiju slug it out though. The movie was supposed to launch in November 2020, but a certain pandemic put a halt to that, just like a whole bunch of other movies. Now you all are just going to have to wait for May 21 of next year. I know I will be.
