The first Godzilla vs. Kong trailer will release on Sunday, January 24, Warner Bros. has announced. For fans in India, there will be three local-language versions of the Godzilla vs. Kong trailer as well — Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu — in addition to the English original. Expect the trailer to arrive around the typical 10:30–11pm Warner time slot. Godzilla vs. Kong is the fourth entry in the so-called MonsterVerse, following up on 2017’s Kong: Skull Island and 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters. It will be available on HBO Max and in US cinemas on the same day, and only in cinemas everywhere else, including in India.
Warner Bros. unveiled a new Godzilla vs. Kong poster on Thursday, and said in a caption alongside: “TRAILER SUNDAY. #GodzillaVsKong”. That’s as straightforward as you can get really. We got a (two-second) first look at Godzilla vs. Kong in an HBO Max sizzle reel unveiled last weekend, and the upcoming trailer will no doubt satisfy fans’ hunger for a proper look, who have been waiting since last year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Here’s the official synopsis for Godzilla vs. Kong from Warner Bros. and Legendary:
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.
Godzilla vs. Kong is currently slated to release March 26 in cinemas worldwide. In India, it will be available in English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
