Monster movie fanatics have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Godzilla vs. Kong, but it sounds like they’ll have to wait a bit longer to see the two famous kaiju wreak havoc at the theater. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. and Legendary have decided to postpone the film’s release date. The studios have moved the upcoming sequel from March 13, 2020 to November 20, 2020.
“In a time when monsters walk the Earth, humanity’s fight for its future sets Godzilla and Kong on a collision course that will see the two most powerful forces of nature on the planet collide in a spectacular battle for the ages. As Monarch embarks on a perilous mission into uncharted terrain and unearths clues to the Titans’ origins, a human conspiracy threatens to wipe the creatures, both good and bad, from the face of the earth forever.”-Godzilla Vs. Kong
This news shouldn’t come as a surprise. If the studios were serious about hanging onto the movie’s spring debut, we probably would have gotten a trailer by now. Warner Bros. chairman Toby Emmerich also previously hinted that the March release date would ultimately change. During a conference held in June, Emmerich suggested that film would be postponed so they could “deliver an A+ movie.” Well, I guess we’ll have to wait and see. Take your time, but hurry up cause were excited!
