Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire is due out in theaters on March 15, 2024.

"The #Monsterverse continues," the film's official account tweeted along with a brief 30 second clip that teases a rather menacing-looking Kong.

The 2021 film saw Godzilla clash with King Kong, with Alexander Skarsgard starring as protagonist Dr. Nathan Lind, Millie Bobby Brown as Madison Russell, the smart and spunky young daughter of animal behavior and communication specialist Dr. Mark Russell, who was played by Kyle Chandler.

Brown, Skarsgard, and Chandler are not returning to the sequel, which will instead welcome cast newcomers Dan Stevens, Fala Chen, Alex Ferns, and Rachel House. The returning cast includes Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, and Kaylee Hottle.
