GODZILLA x KONG: THE NEW EMPIRE Social Media Reactions Promise Epic Action But More Forgettable Humans GODZILLA x KONG: THE NEW EMPIRE Social Media Reactions Promise Epic Action But More Forgettable Humans

The first social media reactions are in for Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, and while it seems we're in store for a fun ride, filmmaker Adam Wingard has done little to address complaints about the humans.

The world premiere for Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire took place yesterday evening and that means we now have the first social media reactions!

For the most part, they're pretty positive; the action sounds every bit as bonkers as what we've seen in the movie's trailers and, crucially, the kaiju battles clearly don't disappoint. Unfortunately, the consensus seems to be that the story and human characters don't work anywhere near as well, with the latter failing to make a meaningful impact. 

Like Godzilla vs. Kong, we're not expecting this follow-up to be a critical darling, but for kaiju fans, that's unlikely to matter. On the plus side, it does sound like we can look forward to a scene-stealing performance from Dan Stevens!

Based on these and other verdicts shared across X, we don't expect the movie to change the minds of those who still aren't on board with the MonsterVerse. Still, with Godzilla and Kong likely to be review-proof, it should have a roar-some weekend at the box office. 

Check out the first Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire social media reactions in the X posts below.

The epic battle continues!  Legendary Pictures' cinematic Monsterverse follows up the explosive showdown of 'Godzilla vs. Kong' with an all-new adventure that pits the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence—and our own. 'Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire' delves further into the histories of these Titans and their origins, as well as the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond, while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and tied them to humankind forever.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire stars returning Godzilla vs. Kong actors Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, and Kaylee Hottle alongside Dan Stevens (Legion), Alex Ferns (The Batman), and Fala Chen (Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings).

The screenplay is by Terry Rossio (Godzilla vs. Kong) and Simon Barrett (You’re Next) and Jeremy Slater (Moon Knight), from a story by Rossio & Wingard & Barrett, based on the character "Godzilla" owned and created by TOHO Co., Ltd.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire rampages into theaters on March 29.

People come to watch these films to see the Monsters right? So why would it be disappointing that the human characters are not interesting?
