With director Adam Wingard’s Godzilla vs. Kong now playing in North American theaters and streaming for free on HBO Max, I recently spoke with Eiza González about making the newest entry in the monster franchise. During the fun interview, she talked about who they’d be rooting for if she wasn’t in the movie, what it was like seeing the finished film and the monster fights, if her character in Godzilla vs. Kong had seen the Jurassic Park movies, and what surprised her about making the movie. In addition, over the past year, whenever we wrote about this movie, so many people wanted to know why Godzilla and Kong don’t kiss. So I asked her about it. Considering she had no idea I’d be asking this question, her answer was great.
In Godzilla vs. Kong, you will see the two monsters taking each other on in their first shared film in years. The film is a direct sequel to both Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Kong: Skull Island and the movie co-stars Alexander Skarsgard, Rebecca Hall, Millie Bobby Brown, Julian Dennison, Kyle Chandler, Brian Tyree Henry, and Demián Bichir.
