Godzilla vs. Kong

Godzilla vs. Kong is a 2021 American monster film directed by Adam Wingard. A sequel to both Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) and Kong: Skull Island (2017), it is the fourth film in Legendary's MonsterVerse. It is also the 36th film in the Godzilla franchise, the 12th film in the King Kong franchise, and the fourth Godzilla film to be completely produced by a Hollywood studio.[b] The film stars Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Shun Oguri, Eiza González, Julian Dennison, Kyle Chandler, and Demián Bichir. In the film, humans are amid a colossal clash between Godzilla and Kong who battle to see who reign among the other Titans.

The project was announced in October 2015 when Legendary announced plans for a shared cinematic universe between Godzilla and King Kong. The film's writers room was assembled in March 2017, and Wingard was announced as the director in May 2017. Principal photography began in November 2018 in Hawaii, Australia and Hong Kong, and wrapped in April 2019.

After being delayed from a November 2020 release date due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Godzilla vs. Kong was theatrically released internationally on March 24, 2021, and in the United States on March 31, simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max. The film received generally positive reviews from critics, with praise for its visual effects and action sequences, but with criticism towards the writing of the human characters. It has grossed $123 million worldwide, making it the fourth highest-grossing film of 2021.

Plot
Five years after Godzilla killed his extraterrestrial nemesis, Ghidorah, he and Kong are currently the last known active Titans on Earth. On Skull Island, the climate has been destabilized, and Monarch now watches over Kong, who resides within a giant dome. Kong is visited by Jia, the last Iwi native and Ilene Andrews' adopted daughter, who is deaf and can communicate with Kong via sign language.

Bernie Hayes, a former employee of the Apex Cybernetics corporation and host of a Titan conspiracy theory podcast, exfiltrates information suggesting sinister activities at a Pensacola Apex facility. However, Godzilla suddenly attacks the facility; during the rampage, Bernie discovers a device that resembles the ORCA, previously used to communicate with or control Titans. Madison Russell, a fan of Bernie's podcast, enlists her friend Josh to investigate Godzilla's attack. Together they find Bernie and sneak into the wrecked Apex base, discovering a secret facility deep underground. They are inadvertently locked and transported through an underground monorail to Hong Kong. There, they unwittingly intrude on a test of a mechanical version of Godzilla, telepathically controlled by Ren Serizawa, the son of the late Ishirō Serizawa, through the neural networks from a severed head of Ghidorah that Apex has retrieved. The test is cut short due to the power supply's limitations. It is then revealed that Apex executive Walter Simmons intends to harness the power of an energy source in the Hollow Earth, an underground world that is a secret home to the Titans, to overcome the limitations of Mechagodzilla.

Walter recruits Nathan Lind, a former Monarch scientist turned theorist on the Hollow Earth, as a guide in search of the power source. Although Nathan is initially hesitant because his brother died on an expedition to Hollow Earth owing to a strong reverse-gravitational effect, he agrees after Walter reveals that Apex has developed HEAVs, specialized crafts able to withstand the pressure exerted by the gravity field. To help guide them to the Hollow Earth in search of the energy source, Nathan goes to Skull Island and meets with Ilene, convincing her to let Kong guide them through the Hollow Earth. Nathan, Ilene, and an Apex team led by Walter's daughter Maya board a modified barge carrying Kong. Godzilla attacks the convoy midway through the voyage and defeats Kong, but retreats after the ships disable their power and trick him into thinking they are destroyed. Realizing that Godzilla will continue to come for Kong, they airlift Kong to a Hollow Earth entry point in Antarctica. Jia convinces Kong to enter the tunnel, and the team follows him in the HEAV's.

Inside Hollow Earth, they find an ecosystem similar to Skull Island. While traversing through the landscape, Kong and the team discover his species' ancestral throne room where they find remains of an ancient war with Godzilla's kind and a glowing axe made from the dorsal spines of another member of Godzilla's species. As they find the power source, the Apex team sends its signature back to their base in Hong Kong, but Godzilla, sensing the energy, makes landfall in the city and directly drills a shaft to the throne room with his fire breath. In the ensuing mayhem, Maya and the rest of the Apex team are killed. Kong and the survivors (Ilene, Jia, and Nathan) ascend through the tunnel to Hong Kong, where Godzilla and Kong fight again. Kong wins but doesn’t finish Godzilla off, which results in Godzilla getting back up for another round. This third engagement ends with Godzilla claiming victory over Kong.

In the Apex base, Ren warns Walter of employing the new Hollow Earth energy source without prior testing, but Walter ignores his pleas and orders him to activate Mechagodzilla. Bernie, Madison, and Josh are caught by security and brought to Walter. When Mechagodzilla is re-activated with that new energy, it is taken over by Ghidorah’s consciousness lingering in the interface network, kills Walter and Ren, and then attacks Hong Kong, drawing Godzilla's attention. Godzilla and Mechagodzilla battle; however, Godzilla, weary from his battle with Kong, is overwhelmed. Nathan's team is able to revive Kong, and Jia convinces him to help Godzilla, but Mechagodzilla overpowers both of the Titans. In the base, Josh short-circuits Mechagodzilla's controls with Bernie's flask of liquor, stalling the robot and giving Godzilla and Kong time to recover. Godzilla blasts the axe with his atomic breath, supercharging it and allowing Kong to destroy Mechagodzilla. Madison, Bernie, and Josh reunite with Mark Russell, while Godzilla and Kong acknowledge each other before going their separate ways. Sometime later, Ilene and Jia watch Kong, now ruling over the Hollow Earth, from an observation post.

Cast
Alexander Skarsgård as Dr. Nathan Lind:
A Monarch geologist and chief cartographer who works closely with Kong and charts the mission into the Hollow Earth. Skarsgård described his character as a reluctant hero who is "not an alpha, bad-ass" and "thrown into this very dangerous situation and is definitely not equipped for it." Skarsgård called Nathan a homage to 1980s films like Indiana Jones, Romancing the Stone, Lethal Weapon, and Die Hard.
Millie Bobby Brown as Madison Russell:
The daughter of Monarch scientists Mark and the late Emma Russell. Madison believes there is a reason for Godzilla's erratic behavior, suspecting a conspiracy formulated by the Apex Cybernetics. She proceeds to investigate with Josh Valentine and Bernie Hayes. Brown described the film as a coming of age story for Madison, noting that the character has "grown-up" and become more "independent" since the events of the previous film, stating, "Her storyline has definitely evolved greatly in the way she deals with things, her attitude towards life, how much more stronger of a person." Producer Alex Garcia described Madison as the "advocate for Godzilla in this film" who tries to "vindicate" Godzilla and his reasons.
Rebecca Hall as Dr. Ilene Andrews:
A Monarch anthropological linguist, and Jia's adoptive mother. Hall described her participation as "overwhelming" due to the film being her first project after her pregnancy, but found the experience "thrilling." Hall described Ilene as "the Jane Goodall of Kong."
Brian Tyree Henry as Bernie Hayes:
A former Apex Cybernetics technician turned conspiracy theorist aiding Madison and Josh to expose Apex. Henry described Bernie as a "crackpot" with a level of "heart" and "loyalty." Henry noted that the tragic death of Bernie's wife shaped him to become a conspiracy theorist with a podcast and further elaborated, "his goal is to use the tools at his disposal to bring the truth to the people. I always refer to Bernie as Anonymous. He can see the injustices, but no one really listens to him." Due to Bernie's protective nature of Madison and Josh, Henry jokingly likened Bernie to Brienne of Tarth.[6][13]
Shun Oguri as Ren Serizawa:
The son of the late Monarch scientist Ishirō Serizawa, and an Apex Cybernetics scientist and tech engineer,[16] who is the telepathic pilot for Mechagodzilla. Oguri described Ren's goal as trying to "protect the Earth," however, the means to his goal differ from "everyone else, and his father." Oguri noted that Ren "sort of" followed in his father's footsteps but stated, "he doesn’t believe he was heard by his father."[6]
Eiza González as Maia Simmons:
A top-tier Apex Cybernetics executive, and Walter Simmons' daughter. González described her role as a "very smart woman behind a company." She also described the film as "slightly comedic." González noted having enjoyed the fact that her character was a Latina woman with a high position within a company and wasn't forced into a stereotype.
Julian Dennison as Josh Valentine:
A friend of Madison aiding her and Bernie to investigate the source of Godzilla's erratic behavior. Dennison described his character as a "nerd" and Madison as his "only friend." Dennison called Josh Madison's "tech wingman," and the "realist in the duo," stating, "he kind of brings it, 'Oh, we shouldn’t do that because we’ll die.' And she’s, 'No, it will be fine.' So, I think they play very well. And they’re a very good mix of just craziness." Dennison screen-tested with Brown using scenes from Romeo and Juliet.
Lance Reddick as Monarch Director Guillermin
Kyle Chandler as Dr. Mark Russell:
Madison's father, Monarch's deputy director of special projects, and an animal behavior and communication specialist.
Demián Bichir as Walter Simmons:
Maya's father, CEO, and founder of Apex Cybernetics, a tech organization invested in trying to solve the Earth's "Titan problem," secretly creating Mechagodzilla to exterminate them. Walter is a visionary entrepreneur and billionaire who wants to help humanity and make the world a safer place, but clashes with Monarch over their differing ideals on what's best for humanity. Producer Alex Garcia said Walter "has risen to a place… in the seats of power, and is wanting to help to stem and stop the madness and the destruction. Garcia stated that Walter isn't necessarily a villain or a Machiavellian character but is "a very complex character who believes he's doing the right thing. And he may be, but that's where the mystery at the core of the film comes into play.
Kaylee Hottle as Jia:
A young orphan deaf Iwi native who forms a special bond with Kong, and is Ilene's adopted daughter.
Additionally, Hakeem Kae-Kazim portrays Admiral Wilcox; Ronny Chieng portrays Jay Wayne; John Pirruccello portrays Horace; and Chris Chalk portrays Ben.[19] Zhang Ziyi and Jessica Henwick were cast but did not appear in the final cut of the film, with Ziyi intended to be reprising her role since Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
