THE NEW EMPIRE Trailer And Poster Unleash The Titans And Embrace The Franchise’s Sci-Fi Roots

Warner Bros. has just dropped an epic three-minute trailer for Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, and if you thought Godzilla vs. Kong was nuts…well, this sneak peek makes that movie look positively tame in comparison.

The MonsterVerse has fully embraced its sci-fi routes, a big change from the grounded Godzilla movie Gareth Edwards delivered nearly a decade ago. 

In this sneak peek, we discover that Hollow Earth is home to countless creatures like Kong. However, with the villainous Skar King looking to rule over them, Kong – and later Godzilla – find themselves going toe-to-toe with the villain both deep beneath the surface and in some familiar locations across the globe.

He appears to be a formidable threat (he’d have to be to take them both on), though we can’t help wondering whether the mysterious Skar King will end up getting backup from other familiar Titans pulled from the TOHO catalogue.
