Fans of boxing and MMA know that it is often difficult to schedule a championship match, and when it comes to a heavyweight monster showdown, this may also be the case. Warner Bros. and Legendary’s Godzilla vs. Kong has been delayed yet again, moving from the previously scheduled March 13, 2020 date to November 20, 2020.
This is the second time that the release date of Godzilla vs. Kong has been changed. Originally, the film was scheduled to hit theaters in the summer of 2020, before being fast-tracked into March. The giant monster mash (directed by Adam Wingard) stars Alexander Skarsgard, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, and Brian Tyree Henry.
No reason has been given for the change, but the new November date puts the two titans in direct competition with Marvel Studios space gods film, Eternals (which comes out two weeks earlier on November 6). Godzilla: King of the Monsters made a less than monster-sized $385 million worldwide. The two previous entries from the kaiju kings, Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island earned $524 million and $566 million respectively.
