This is a bit surprising.
Godzilla vs. Kong was originally planned for March 13, 2020 and soon joined a long list of movies delayed. Eventually it was pushed back to 2021 and then Warner Bros. announced they were going to release 17 movies in 2021 in both theaters (that were open) and on HBO Max for 31 days, including Godzilla.
This announcement rattled financial partner for the film Legendary, because they could have gotten $200 million for a direct sale to Netflix, so Warner Bros. sprang into damage control.
The story has a new twist.
Warner Bros, in the wake of making good with Legendary on the simultaneous release of Godzilla vs. Kong in theaters and on HBO Max, will be releasing the movie on March 26 instead of May 21.‘Godzilla Vs. Kong’ Jumps Up To March In HBO Max & Theatrical Debut – Deadline
Yeah, that’s right, they aren’t going to wait until May, we’re going to get to see this the end of March. Maybe.
Have to add the maybe part because these movie dates are moving around at a crazy pace. I think this one might be pretty safe because HBO Max isn’t going anywhere because of the pandemic. The only part open to great change is how many domestic theaters will be open on March 26.
