‘Godzilla Vs. Kong’ Sequel Is Now Filming Australian Beaches
All out of the water!
The sequel to last year’s box office giant Godzilla vs. Kong began filming Down Under, according to footage provided by Australian news outlet. Check out the Twitter post – courtesy of comicbook.com – that shows hordes of extras fleeing for their lives from what will (undoubtedly) be Godzilla emerging from the watery depths.
Hollywood’s love affair with the Gold Coast continues. Filming has begun in spectacular fashion for the latest installment in the “Godzilla vs. Kong” franchise, with the action set in the heart of the glitter strip. https://t.co/VZ3A1cpmr5 @Amelia_Adam7 #7INFO pic.twitter.com/fiwjuti8XT

The next Legendary Pictures MonsterVerse entry – slated for release March 15, 2024 – is directed (again) by Adam Wingard and produced by Alex Garcia, Eric McLeod, Thomas Tull, and Jon Jashni.
The only casting announced so far is Dan Stevens in a role that has yet to be revealed. Stevens – who starred in the 2017 live action The beauty and the Beast– worked with Wingard on the 2014 horror thriller The guest.
Plot details have been kept under wraps at this point, but it’s fair to expect some sort of monumental titan rematch – perhaps with Kong raising his hand (er, paw) this time around.
2021’s Battle of the Century became the second pandemic-era film to break the $100 million barrier at the domestic box office, on its way to a $468 million haul worldwide.
