Warner Bros. Pictures presents, GODZILLA X KONG :THE NEW EMPIRE is a sequel to Godzilla vs Kong (2021) and is the 38th film in the Godzilla franchise. It is also  the 13th film in the King Kong franchise. 

Shot mostly in Queensland, the film premiered at Los Angeles on March 25th 2024.


Godzilla and Kong team up against a mysterious Hollow Earth threat, and also focus on the previously untold origins of the Titans and Skull Island.

 The epic battle continues with an all-new adventure that pits the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence.


Right from the word go, the story pulls you in. From the minute Kong appears on screen, in pain from a damaged tooth, lonely in his forlorn world, the giant figure on screen establishes am instant connect once again with the audiences. 

From then on, it's a roller coaster ride as one thing leads to another,  and a fantastic story unfolds on screen, with visuals that are breathtaking, kudos no doubt, to the vfx team. 

There are several scenes that will bring out the whistles,  claps and cheers, like the tooth replacement scene, the battle with skar king's forces, the appearance of Godzilla, the ensuing battles and the final climsx to name a few.

In equal measure, is the emotional connect which keeps you invested in these characters, be it the  lead scientist and her daughter, the plight of Kong and all that he goes through in battle, or the connect between the secret Iwi tribe and the scientist's child and the mother's fear of separation.

There is ample humor but just in the right measure, without any overdoes of wisecracks.

The appearance of Mothra and the final battle scenes are epic. The Hollow Earth terrain unfolding on screen and the journey to it, is another treat.

From wonder worthy moments, an engagingly told story, ample build-up to characters, to epic battles and mass moments, drama, emotion and humor, the film seems like a summer treat for kids and families alike.
