One of the most anticipated movies to spin out of Warner Bros.’ upcoming phalanx of 2021 movies heading to theaters and straight to HBO Max is “Godzilla vs. Kong.” The sequel to “Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” and “Kong: Skull Island,” the fourth entry in Legendary’s evolving MonsterVerse arrives day-and-date on the rookie streaming platform and in available theaters this coming March 31.

The film is set in a time when monsters walk the Earth, and 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 a group of scientists called Monarch embark on a perilous mission into uncharted terrain and unearth clues to the titans’ origins, a human conspiracy threatens to wipe the creatures, both good and bad, from the face of the earth forever.

“Godzilla vs. Kong” is directed by Adam Wingard and written by Eric Pearson and Max Borenstein, and it boasts a fetching cast, including Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Shun Oguri, Eiza González, Jessica Henwick, Julian Dennison, Kyle Chandler, and Demián Bichir.

Ahead of the film’s theatrical and HBO Max debut, here are 17 movies from the Godzilla and King Kong franchises to stream.
