The wheels are still turning on the machines that aim to deliver Godzilla Vs. Kong into the masses and things took a fairly major twist for the better. In a significant step forward for the November 20 launch of the film in Warner Bros’ Monster Verse saga, a composer has been named to evaluate this movie mashup. If you’re a lover of Mad Max: Fury Road or Alita: Battle Angel, the news that Tom Holkenborg, a.k.a. Junkie XL has scored the honors should be music to your ears.
Reported by Film Music Reporter, the information for Godzilla Vs. Kong’s capability to nab this musical genius to the fray is a great sign that the November launch is all systems go. But even if there’s a last-minute change of plans, and also the big battle between the famous Titans gets pushed to another date, that a musical score is being recorded signifies that the product we are likely to see in theaters is fairly much in the can.
Houston Brooks is not the only character. Millie Bobby Brown will be reprising her role from Godzilla: King of the Monsters as Madison Russell and Kyle Chandler will be planning her father, Mark. Godzilla vs. Kong also celebrities Alexander Skarsgård, Rebecca Hall, and Brian Tyree Henry.
Godzilla vs. Kong was initially set to launch in ancient 2020 but the film was pushed into November. It was a choice that is well educated, as it was made in November 2019, months before movie theater closures started to occur across the world. Before being pushed back, the movie would have been pushed back anyway as it had been set to open last month.
Hopefully bringing Kong and Godzilla collectively will be sufficient to energize the box office when the film comes out. Godzilla: King of the Monsters, although it wasn’t a complete flop, had a rougher than anticipated time in theatres. One wonders if we’d have even seen Godzilla vs. Kong this soon if the movie hadn’t already been in production. But for the fans who have been invested in this show, it means that they’ll get to see the battle between Kong and Godzilla that they’ve been waiting.
