Staff Reporter | On 12, Mar 2021
Godzilla vs Kong will be available to watch online in the UK and Ireland this April, Warner Bros has announced.
The long-awaited face-off between the two kaiju icons, from Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures, will continue to build on Legendary’s cinematic Monsterverse. Directed by Adam Wingard (You’re Next), it sees Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe. The epic clash between the two titans—instigated by unseen forces—is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth.
The film stars Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Rebecca Hall (Christine), Brian Tyree Henry (Joker), Shun Oguri (Weathering with You), Eiza González (Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw) and Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2), with Kyle Chandler (Godzilla: King of the Monsters) and Demián Bichir (The Hateful Eight).
Written by Eric Pearson (Thor: Ragnarok) and Max Borenstein (Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Kong: Skull Island), the premieres in US cinemas on 31st March, when it will also be available to stream on HBO Max. In the UK, fans have been waiting on a release date, but now, Warner Bros has revealed that it will be also be available to stream on this side of the Atlantic within 24 hours of its US debut.
The film will be given a premium VOD release on 1st April, following the same approach taken by Warner Bros in the UK for Wonder Woman 1984, The Witches, The Little Things, Locked Down and Judas and the Black Messiah – although Zack Snyder’s Justice League (arriving on 18th March) will be a Sky Cinema exclusive.
That means you can expect Godzilla vs Kong to be priced at £15.99 for a 48-hour rental on iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, Rakuten TV, TalkTalk TV, Sky Store, CHILI, Microsoft Store, BT TV and PlayStation Video.
