The wait is over to experience an epic battle between two of cinema’s true titans – it’s Godzilla vs Kong and whoever wins, we also win, because the entertainment value on this blockbuster is sure to be huge.
The new film forms the fourth entry in Warner Bros’ “MonsterVerse”, continuing the story that kicked off with 2014’s Godzilla and continued through 2017’s Kong: Skull Island and 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
Now, Godzilla vs Kong brings the two characters together – for the first time on-screen for almost 60 years – and also boasts an all-star cast of humans who appear alongside the warring giants.
Originally scheduled to be released in cinemas last November, the film was delayed due to the pandemic – and although fans hoping to catch it on a big screen will have to wait a little longer, it’s now available for us all to enjoy from the comfort of our own homes.
Read on for everything you need to know about Godzilla vs Kong and how you can watch it in the UK.

What is Godzilla vs Kong about?
Serving as a sequel to both Kong: Skull Island and Godzilla / Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the film will see the two gargantuan creatures cross paths in an epic battle – all while a human-led conspiracy group strives to defeat both of the Titans and reclaim the Earth for themselves.
And rather than sitting on the fence, it looks like there could well be a definitive victor of the battle – with director Adam Wingard having previously teased during an interview with Entertainment Weekly that “I do want people to walk away from this film feeling like, ‘Okay, there is a winner’.”
