Godzilla vs Kong Director Says Rating Is ‘an Understatement’

-

Still scheduled for a November 20, 2020 release date, Godzilla vs Kong has received its MPA rating and the rating got a great reaction from the film’s director. The MPA has rated Godzilla vs Kong PG-13 for “intense sequences of creature violence/destruction and brief language.”

What was director Adam Wingard (The Guest, You’re Next) reaction? “That’s an understatement,” he said on Instagram. You can check out his post below!

That’s an understatement 😉

Following the global success of 2014’s Godzilla (buy at Amazon), 2017’s Kong: Skull Island (buy at Amazon), and 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters (buy at Amazon) comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Entertainment’s cinematic Monsterverse.

The epic action adventure Godzilla vs Kong will pit two of the greatest icons in motion picture history against one another — the fearsome Godzilla and the mighty Kong — with humanity caught in the balance.

The film stars Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies, The Little Drummer Girl), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Rebecca Hall (Christine, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women), Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta, Widows), Shun Oguri (Gintama), Eiza González (Baby Driver), Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist), and Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2).

Also starring in the highly-anticipated movie are Kyle Chandler (The Wolf of Wall Street, Manchester by the Sea) and Demián Bichir (The Nun, The Hateful Eight).

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.

Wingard directs from a script written by Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean). The film is being produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Eric McLeod, and Brian Rogers, with Kenji Okuhira, Yoshimitsu Banno, Jon Jashni and Thomas Tull serving as executive producers. Jay Ashenfelter, Jen Conroy and Tamara Kent are co-producers.

Behind the scenes, Wingard’s creative team includes director of photography Ben Seresin (World War Z, Unstoppable), production designers Owen Patterson (Godzilla, The Matrix Trilogy and Captain America: Civil War) and Tom Hammock (The Guest, Blindspotting).

The film’s editor is Josh Schaeffer (Molly’s Game, Kong: Skull Island), the costume designer is Ann Foley (Altered Carbon), and VFX supervisor is John “DJ” DesJardin (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Watchmen).

Filming took place in Hawaii and Australia. The film will be distributed in 3D and 2D and in select IMAX theaters by Warner Bros. Pictures, except in Japan, where it will be distributed by Toho Co., Ltd.
