A fan cut of the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong movie turns their legendary clash from a classic kaiju monster movie into a dance battle.
A Godzilla vs. Kong The fan edit turns the kaiju movie into a dance battle. The highly anticipated reinvented face-to-face between the two monstrous legends reaches its climax. The first time they clashed was in King Kong vs. Godzilla, released in Japan in 1962. Despite a somewhat ambiguous ending with the Two Titans falling into the water, King Kong emerges and is officially declared the winner by Toho Studios, the film production unit behind the showdown on Grand screen.
Since their feud in the 1960s, Godzilla and King Kong have found new life with rejuvenated Hollywood adaptations in their own respective franchises. Kong was reintroduced via Peter Jackson King Kong in 2005 with Naomi Watts (The ring), Jack Black (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) and Adrien Brody (Peaky blinders) and 2017 Kong: Skull Island, directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, starring Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Samuel L. Jackson (Avengers: Edgame) and Brie Larson (Captain marvel). The resurgence of Godzilla came from Gareth Edwards’ 2014 Godzilla with Elizabeth Olsen (WandaVision), Bryan Cranston (breaking Bad) and Ken Watanabe (Creation). The most recent film, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, directed by Michael Dougherty and starring Vera Farmiga (Motel Bates) and Millie Bobby Brown (Strange things) in 2019, paved the way for the cataclysmic revenge of kaiju, which has lasted for nearly 60 years.
Instagrammer Crumble_Memes shared a glimpse of what a lighter battle between Kong and Godzilla might look like. To music from the 1981 Phil Collins pop hit “In the air tonightKong greets Godzilla coming ashore with infectious drumming, to which the King of the Monsters can’t help but do a few funky dance steps in response. Alexander Skarsgård, who plays in Godzilla vs. Kong, remains completely perplexed by what he witnesses. You can watch the clip below:
This is not the first time that the kaiju monarch has shaken its tail. In the classic Astro Monster Invasion in 1965, Godzilla first performed an adorable victory dance in show jumping on screen. Fast forward to 2015, a comedy dance meme Godzilla goes viral on YouTube using its likeness to his 2014 film. The clip has been parodied and reissued in many different iterations over the years, reinforcing the idea for them. Godzilla fans that the beast is indeed a “dancing machine”.
Godzilla vs. Kong is directed by Adam Wingard and also stars Brian Tyree Henry (If Beale Street could speak), Rebecca Hall (Holmes & Watson), and a returning Millie Bobby Brown. Based on official trailers already released, it’s likely that the 18-minute drop between the two giants will be much more serious. With Kong triumphant in his inaugural fight, it’s possible the reboot will want to take a different path and see Godzilla come out on top. However, the first images also position Kong as the film’s protagonist, leaving Godzilla as the villain to be defeated, and the Atomic Lizard’s chances of victory are not very good. Nevertheless, the winner intended for their ultimate collision (“dance” or otherwise) is yet to be guessed, to be determined when Godzilla vs. Kong hits theaters and on HBO Max on March 25, 2021.
