Screen Crush caught up with director Adam Wingard who offers Godzilla vs. King Kong will feature massive monster brawls, but interestingly enough, Wingard doesn’t want the movie to be just a slugfest as he wants viewers to be emotionally invested.
That’s what I want to do, I really want you to take those characters seriously. I want you to be emotionally invested, not just in the human characters, but actually in the monsters. If I had my way, I want people to really be teary-eyed at the end of the movie, and be that invested in to what’s going on.
It’s a massive monster brawl movie. There’s lots of monsters going crazy on each other, but at the end of the day I want there to be an emotional drive to it. I want you to be emotionally invested in them. I think that’s what’s going to make it really cool.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters hits March 22, 2019, with Godzilla vs. Kong opening May 22, 2020.
Who do you think will win the big fight? Godzilla? Or King Kong?!
