Why Godzilla: King Of The Monsters Is A Must-Watch Before Seeing Godzilla Vs. Kong
Something happened when the trailer for Godzilla vs. Kong was released that sort of blew me away: people got really excited about it. I mean, that’s not to say that I expected the new film’s trailer to go by completely unnoticed, but I was surprised by the degree to which people seemed to get really excited about Godzilla vs. Kong. That’s because they certainly didn’t seem to feel the same way about the movie’s direct predecessor, Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
New Godzilla Vs. Kong Trailer Shows Off That Highly-Anticipated Third Titan
While fans are getting quite excited for the upcoming big-screen battle between Godzilla and Kong, there have been hints for a while now that the title characters wouldn’t be the only massive creatures in the new movie. Godzilla: King of the Monsters gave us four big beasts to beat the hell out of each other, after all, and so it was expected that we might see more classic Godzilla creatures in the new movie. Recent reveals on the merchandise side had all but confirmed that one popular kaiju would be appearing in the new film, and now, a new trailer released in China has given us our first real, though far from clear, look at MechaGodzilla.
Godzilla vs. Kong And Face/Off Sequel Updates From Director Adam Wingard
Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard joins the show this week! We discuss how they built scenes surrounding two CGI characters, why Kong is so effective for an audience emotionally and we even touch on some of his previous work in established franchises like Blair Witch and Death Note. You know we couldn’t have the director of the upcoming Face/Off sequel on without asking him about it, and he gave us a massive hint at where they’re headed with it.
In rare fashion, we had some major news break during the episode rather than after. Black Widow and pretty much the rest of Disney’s remaining 2021 slate has shifted. We discuss Warner Media confirming that Zack Snyder’s Justice League will be his last in what they now consider to be a completed trilogy.
This week’s BlendGame looks at the work of Antoine Fuqua. Next week, we celebrate the incredible Kate Winslet, and try to narrow down our favorite performances from her staggering career. Send in your pick on Twitter using #KateWinsletBlend.

How The Face/Off Sequel Will Benefit From Godzilla Vs. Kong
After Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard brings his long-awaited MonsterVerse showdown to the big screen and HBO Max, the filmmaker has signed on to direct and co-write the script for a Face/Off sequel. Yes, the totally off-the-rails 1997 face-swap movie that starred Nicolas Cage and John Travolta is expected to be revisited, and Wingard has learned a little something about his plans for it from Godzilla vs. Kong.
The time has come and Godzilla and King Kong are finally about to duke it out for the title of “King of the Monsters” in the highly anticipated fourth instalment in Legendary’s MonsterVerse. But before the two iconic monsters finally cross paths on Wednesday, March 31, you probably want to know just how you can go about watching Godzilla vs. Kong streaming.
Adam Wingard recently clarified that his plans for a Face/Off sequel involve a direct continuation of the story centred on John Travolta’s Sean Archer and Nicolas Cage’s Castor Troy – also teasing that the actors could be involved in the movie if he closes the right deal with Paramount. Per these words with Variety, the filmmaker spoke about making the follow-up an epic movie with major action set pieces. Of course, we want to see Face/Off go a step further and be wackier if it’s going to happen. Wingard also recently said this to CinemaBlend’s ReelBlend podcast.
Hmmm… it definitely sounds like his Face/Off is picking up where the original story left off. He also explained that he’s looking to make a “definitive follow-up” to the original with “everything that entails,” and if it doesn’t include what he’s imagining, he’s simply not going to make it. These are inspiring words from Adam Wingard as he gets ready to reveal Godzilla vs. Kong to the world.
Even though it has taken us years (and multiple delays) to get to the point of finally seeing two of cinema’s greatest monsters use the planet as an oversized wrestling ring, I can honestly say that the hard part is over and all you need to do is sit back, relax, and watch the two go at it. Enough with the introductions, let’s get started on three rounds of useful information about how to watch Godzilla vs. Kong streaming, things to remember, and how to watch previous Godzilla and King Kong movies.
Where Is Godzilla Vs. Kong Streaming
If you don’t want to venture out to one of the recently reopened theater chains to take in all that Godzilla vs. Kong has to offer, you can see it from the comfort of your home by watching the legendary battle go all out on HBO Max. Included in Warner Bros.’ 2021 release strategy, which will see the studio’s films land in theaters and on HBO Max simultaneously, the showdown of monsters (with some human elements in between) will be available on the streaming service for 31 days upon its release on March 31, 2021. This gives you plenty of time to watch the epic battle for supremacy before Mortal Kombat swoops in two weeks later.

One More Theater Chain Is Having A Monster Reopening Thanks To Godzilla Vs. Kong
Ever since theatres were forced to close due to the pandemic and movie studios began to shift around release dates for major projects, the theatrical movie business has been in something of a catch-22. Theatres need to be open for these movies to have someplace to screen, and release delays have continued to get pushed back while theaters remained closed. And if movies keep being pushed back, then theaters have nothing new to show upon reopening. Regal Cinemas have remained closed even in places where they’re allowed to open because it just wasn’t financially feasible to open. But that’s about to change thanks to Godzilla vs Kong.
Regal Cinemas, the second-largest chain in the U.S., originally closed in March of 2020 along with all the other movie theaters nationwide. Theaters attempted reopening in many places over last summer, and that included many Regal locations. However, eventually Regal’s U.K. parent company Cineworld decided to close theaters down again, not because of a resurgence in coronavirus, but simply because being open wasn’t profitable without the major new releases that are the life blood of the theatrical model. But now Cineworld has announced that Regal theaters in the U.S. will be opening beginning April 2 and will screen Godzilla vs. Kong, and will follow that a couple of weeks later with Mortal Kombat.
