Following the start of production and release of the official synopsis, now the first set pics out of Hawaii for Godzilla vs. Kong have landed online.
The images don't feature any of the actors as of yet, and obviously both Godzilla, Kong and whatever other kaiju they use will be added post-production with CGI, but the pics offer a look at the Hawaiin setting of the movie.
The Reel News Hawaii Twitter account posted the Godzilla vs. Kong set images with word of filming locations including footage will be filmed on the Battleship Missouri. The working title also appears to be "APEX."
