The Hollywood biggie has a major star cast, including Alexander Skarsgard, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Shun Oguri, Eiza González, Deadpool 2 star Julian Dennison, Kyle Chandler from Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Demián Bichir.
The sci-fi movie revolves around two nearly 400ft beasts, King Kong and Godzilla, who turn the entire city into a battleground, without caring for any collateral damage, and indulge in powerful fights to satisfy primal pleasures. Meanwhile, humanity is silenced and transformed into being mere spectators as the action unfolds, apart from an eight-year-old deaf girl, named Jia (played by Kaylee Hottle) who starts sharing an emotional bond with the Kong and communicates through sign languages.
Godzilla vs Kong is currently running in Indian theatres and is available in several languages including English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
It is reported to be the 36th film in the Godzilla franchise which started with the 1954 film titled Godzilla. The movie, which is a part of the Legendary Pictures Productions’ MonsterVerse franchise, will be the fourth film in that franchise.
Speaking about the film, director Adam had previously said the upcoming version will be the most definitive one. Godzilla and King Kong will clash in the film that will bring the two cinematic worlds together.
Splendid Solution is based on Jeffrey Kluger’s novel of the same name about Dr Jonas Salk’s quest to discover polio vaccine in the early 1950s
While the main event will still take place in LA, the show is working with broadcast affiliates around the world to provide satellite links for other international nominees, say organisers.
Even the most fantastical creatures have some basis in scientific reality, so the natural world is a good place to look to better understand movie monsters.
