Kaiju fans have a little bit longer to wait for the epic battle between Godzilla and King Kong as it moves to a new November 2020 release date.
If you’ve been wondering why a film that’s supposed to be out in only four months hasn’t seen a lick of marketing (not even a poster), you’re not alone. Godzilla vs. Kong was slated to arrive in May 2020, before getting moved UP (a rare move) to a March release slot. As such, many monster-movie fans have been anxiously awaiting the start of marketing.
The lack of a trailer, or even officially released teaser poster, led many to believe the film was being delayed. Turns out, that is what’s happening! The Wrap reports the film has been moved to November 20, 2020. It’s a busy period of time, but could definitely find an audience in that Thanksgiving holiday window.
This puts it a couple weeks after the release of Marvel’s The Eternals (November 6th), but squarely in direct competition with Disney’s animated film Raya and the Last Dragon. The move is to give the film some time to do extra reshoots and VFX touch up to try and make it the best they can. As it’s set to be the culmination of WB’s Monsterverse, they obviously want to go out on a high note.
