The official plot synopsis for Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire reads, “This latest entry in the Monsterverse franchise follows up the explosive showdown of Godzilla vs. Kong with an all-new cinematic adventure, pitting the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our own world, challenging their very existence- and our own.”
The synopsis concluded with, “The epic new film will delve further into the histories of these Titans, their origins, and the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond, while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and tied them to humankind forever.”
Though the official synopsis reveals little, the teaser reveals a new ape-like Titan, Skar King as the new villain. Releasing theatrically on April 12, 2024, the film will herald the next chapter of magnificent monsters and mayhem.
