THE NEW EMPIRE International TV Spot Unleashes King Kong’s New Iron Fist As Titans “Unite”

With Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire right around the corner, a new international TV spot for the Godzilla vs. Kong sequel has rampaged online.

However, rather than pitting the titular Titans against each other, this sneak peek plays they’re going to “UNITE.” That’s teased with shots of both monsters gearing up for action, and there are some epic glimpses of Kong wielding his new robotic B.E.A.S.T. Glove. 

As for the King of the Monsters, it’s no secret that he’ll be rocking an eye-catching new pink colour scheme which suggests he’s undergone a few upgrades of his own. As this teaser suggests, Godzilla’s new powers look set to be instrumental in the war to come with Skar King.

Talking last year, Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire director Adam Wingard explained why he decided to make some changes to the appearances of the sequel’s titular duo. “Very specifically in the last film, I wanted Godzilla to have a continuity, to look the way that he had in King of the Monsters and the 2014 Godzilla,” he revealed. 

“But then I didn’t get a chance at doing my version of Godzilla. So now I wanted to do different things with the spines, and try different colours. I didn’t want it to just be random; it’s part of the story.”

“Similarly with Kong, I wanted to give him some sort of new look as well. We grew his beard out, and gave him a little bit more grey hair and stuff.”

“And though Apex isn’t in this story in a literal way, we kind of hint that Monarch absorbed a lot of the Apex technology after the last film,” the filmmaker said of Kong’s new B.E.A.S.T. Glove. “The glove Kong is wearing, it’s somewhat insinuated that’s Apex technology.”
