Godzilla vs King Kong, the movie monster showdown to end all showdowns, has arrived.

Officially titled Godzilla vs. Kong, the movie is one of the most anticipated pop culture moments of 2021, and its time has finally come. As of midnight on Wednesday, March 31, you can finally stream Godzilla vs. Kong from the comfort of your own home. Yup, pop some popcorn, fire up the best TV in the house and get ready to watch two of cinema’s most famous and misunderstood creatures face off in an epic showdown.

Godzilla vs. Kong is available in select theatres across the United States starting March 31, but if you’re staying at home like the rest of us, the must-see action movie of the year is also available to stream on HBO Max.

Even if you aren’t a big fan of kaiju movies, we know you’ve heard of Godzilla and King Kong. These movie monsters are both international icons that have an insane number of fans, and those fans have been patiently waiting to see who comes out on top after they battle it out. Who will win? How many cities will be destroyed in the process? Will they become BFFs by the end? The answers are streaming now on HBO Max.

Godzilla vs Kong on HBO Max

$14.99/month

Starting with King Kong’s first appearance in 1933 in the original King Kong movie, the giant ape has appeared in a number of sequels and remakes since, making himself a household name in the process. Godzilla, on the other hand, wasn’t introduced to the world until 1954 in the Japanese thriller Godzilla, which helped launch an entirely new genre of monster movie. Like Kong, Godzilla appeared in multiple sequels and remakes as well.

Now, it’s East vs. West, it’s Godzilla vs King Kong, and the pair are finally duking it for the throne of the MonsterVerse to see who really stands as the most powerful of the two for (technically) the very first time.

Upon the trailer’s initial release in January, a viewing record was set for the Warner Bros. trailer and it’s no surprise as to why — this is a huge deal. It all starts as a movie about Kong until Godzilla comes from the depths of the ocean to stir up all the drama. From epic fight scenes to stunning details, we’ve already got our popcorn prepared for this screening.
