Godzilla vs. Kong It is directed by Adam Wingard. In the cast we once again have the participation of Millie Bobby Brown as Madison Russell, in addition, Eiza González and Alexander Skarsgård joined; Kyle Chandler and Rebecca Hall. Like many recent movies, Godzilla vs. Kong was released simultaneously in cinemas and streaming due to the consequences caused by the global health crisis. The surprising thing about the situation is that instead of delaying the date further (as many other studios are doing with their productions) Legendary decided to advance it and the result was spectacular.
Box Office Mojo reported that Godzilla vs. Kong It has grossed $ 285 million at the global box office, the most impressive figure for a movie released in theaters during the pandemic. 2020 was a terrible year for the Hollywood industry, but the new MonsterVerse film shows that things are not lost for movie theaters, and that many people around the world feel committed to exhibitions. Very soon things could go back to the way they were before, Warner Bros. and Legendary have a lot of encouragement right there.
So far no sequel has been confirmed for the MonsterVerse but it is clear that both Legendary and Warner will not stand idly by. The success of now represents more work for the future and the fans already want to see the result. What other Toho beasts await us in the following adventures? We will have to wait a little longer to obtain solid information from the associated companies, but we can already imagine that the human plots will be increasingly relegated in the following productions, giving full prominence to the fascinating monsters.
The film industry has been disrupted like never before in its history due to the pandemic and all of us who enjoy the seventh art must deal with the consequences. In Mexico, we have also been greatly affected by the health crisis, including the largest cinema chains, Cinépolis and Cinemex, as well as many other smaller ones. We hope that 2021 arrives as a positive season for cinema, and that the great premieres of the future will be screened again as they should in theaters.
