Though many of my friends are excited about football today since the winners on either side will line out the teams for the upcoming Super Bowl, I was more excited about the news about the Warner Brothers Pictures upcoming feature “Godzilla Vs. Kong”. The first official trailer just premiered a few minutes ago and I’ve presented that for you along with some premise, casting and promotional art. “Let them fight”…

The Premise: In a time when monsters walk the Earth, humanity’s fight for its future sets Godzilla and Kong on a collision course that will see the two most powerful forces of nature on the planet collide in a spectacular battle for the ages. As Monarch embarks on a perilous mission into uncharted terrain and unearths clues to the Titans’ origins, a human conspiracy threatens to wipe the creatures, both good and bad, from the face of the earth forever.

Playmates Toys Reveals “Godzilla Vs. Kong” First Set of Figures

While the world might be on hold in terms of proper film releases, the folks that make the toys that often accompany a release are keeping hard at work with the products to come and have begun doing their reveals and even some releases just in time for the holiday season. We’ve just completed a very fun virtual event held by the fine folks at The Toy Insider with their “Holiday Of Play” happening and one of the awesome reveals came from Playmates Toys with some figures for the upcoming “Godzilla vs Kong” film. Some of you might remember that this film was supposed to come out this past summer but the Coronavirus Pandemic pushed it back like so many other things. It will arrive next year now and my hope is that it will be on the big screen and not via my Playstation or Roku device. The images below come from Playmates Toys themselves and they are pretty straightforward. Let’s look and discuss

First up we have the 6” Godzilla figure and he is shooting a beam of that radioactive fire he is so famously known for. The package above looks very nice and as you can see by the out of package image he is poseable in as much as a creature like Godzilla might be. I will assume that the mouth and tail have some poseable nature but don’t quote me since I am not looking at a physical product here. There is also some “Battle Damage” which is pretty cool. Now onto the mighty Kong.

Opening: “Kong: Skull Island” (3/10/2017)

Well my friends the BIG day is here and by BIG I mean the opening of the brand new action/adventure film by Legendary Films “Kong: Skull Island”. It doesn’t get much bigger than King Kong does it? Oh and if you said “Well, Godzilla is much bigger” this no longer seems to be the case since they are aiming at the both of them duking it out in the not too distant future. Check out the official theatrical posters

The Premise: In the 1970s, a team of explorers and soldiers are brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific—as beautiful as it is treacherous—unaware that they are crossing into the domain of the mythical giant gorilla known as Kong. (As well as other monsters.) (thanks Wiki).

Warner Brothers Pictures: “Kong: Skull Island” (Official Final Trailer)

Some months ago I posted what was listed as the “Official Final Trailer” for the upcoming “Kong: Skull Island” film and then the other day my buddy asked me if I had seen the just posted “Official Final Trailer” which I had not. I gave it a once over and decided to keep to the process and share it with you reader below. Check out the most recent Official Final Trailer of “Kong: Skull Island” in the next section.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Wow! They sure did seem to show a lot with this one didn’t they? Okay I am officially going off the grid in terms of reading anything about “Kong: Skull Island” until it opens and I do the posting announcing the films arrival. My plan right now is to see it on the opening day but who knows what will happen between then and right now. I loved what they showed here despite thinking that it was a BIT too much but oh well, that is how they seem to do things nowadays. What did you readers think of this longer and final official trailer? Let me know in the comments below.
