Two of cinema's greatest titans are back, as Godzilla and King Kong are set to team up in the new movie, Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire. It is the latest movie in the cinematic universe that began with 2014's Godzilla and has expanded to Apple TV Plus' Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, but just where can you watch Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire right now?

That's a good question, especially because the previous movie, Godzilla vs Kong, received a simultaneous release in movie theaters and on the streaming service HBO Max (now just Max) back in 2021. Is that the case again with Godzilla x Kong or not?

Is Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire streaming?

While Godzilla vs Kong premiered on streaming the same day it landed in movie theaters, that won't be the case with Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, as the movie is playing exclusively in movie theaters first.

The reason Godzilla vs Kong was given a day-and-date release on streaming was because it came out in 2021, while people were still dealing with the height of the pandemic and Warner Bros. decided to do that with just about all of their 2021 slate of movies.

While it's not there right now, it's almost certain that Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire will make its streaming debut on Max when the time comes. We'll keep this page updated with info on that as it becomes available, though the movie is likely to be available through digital on-demand platforms first.
