‘Godzilla Vs. Kong’ Release Date Pushed Back a Week

Godzilla Vs. Kong is getting a new release date.

The highly anticipated film, which was bumped up two months from May 21 to March 26, has now been postponed for another week, Warner Bros. confirmed, via Variety on Tuesday (January 26).

The film will now debut on March 31 simultaneously in movie theaters and on HBO Max amid the pandemic, launching internationally on March 26.

According to the outlet, the latest delay was “made in response to news that MGM would postpone its James Bond entry No Time to Die from April 2 to Oct. 8. Sony’s Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, which had also been set for April 2, was delayed to June.”

Legendary Entertainment, the production company behind the movie, recently resolved an argument with Warner Bros. after threatening to take legal action over the studio’s decision to put all of its 2021 movies on HBO Max on the same day they debut in theaters in 2021.

“Legendary was frustrated because Warner Bros., its frequent collaborators, had previously blocked Netflix’s $250 million bid to buy the monster movie. The two companies have reportedly hashed out frustrations and settled on a release strategy that satisfied both parties,” Variety adds.

The film stars Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Shun Oguri, Eiza González, Julian Dennison, Kyle Chandler and Demián Bichir.
