Godzilla and Kong will form a duo inspired by… Lethal Weapon!

The union of the two Kaijus against a common enemy was thought of as a “buddy cop movie”!

After confronting each other in Godzilla vs. Kongthe two monsters will have to team up in the next opus of the saga, Godzilla X Kong: The New Empireto face an even more powerful common enemy!

Filmmaker Adam Wingard warns in the last issue of Empire that the two Kaijus will not have become “best friends”. But they will form an alliance:

“There’s a little truce. Godzilla controls the surface world and Kong has gone to live in Hollow Earth, the center of the Earth. They have no relationship. They don’t call each other to give each other blows. hand.” But when the threat of the new villain, Skar King, emerges, their duo becomes indispensable.

Because we can talk about a duo. Godzilla X Kong was designed as an XXL size buddy cop movie: “I think we’ve created a dysfunctional relationship dynamic in the vein of a buddy cop moviee.” Yes, something along the lines of The lethal Weapondirectly cited as an influence by the filmmaker at Empire. “My influences are always rooted in the 80s, and the 80s have been favored in this matter! Prepare yourself for lots of references. Just with these two creatures who can’t really speak. “There are a lot of misunderstandings: The way monsters communicate is not simple…”

It remains to be seen which one will Murtaugh and which one will Riggs.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire will be directed again by Adam Wingard. In the cast, we will see Rebecca Hall with Brian Tyree Henry and Dan Steven. No Millie Bobby Brown this time. The screenplay is written by Terry Rossio and Simon Barrett. Released on April 10, 2024 in cinemas in France.
