In 2005 Kyle Chandler co-stared in Peter Jackson's successful remake of King Kong, but next year he will go up against another monster 'king' in Michael Dougherty's Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Speaking about the immediate follow up, Chandler was quick to pick a winner. He even reached further back into Godzilla lore, referencing Yoshimitsu Banno's Godzilla vs. Hedorah (1971).
"How is King Kong going to beat Godzilla? I don't see it happening! He's got a radiation death ray! ... Godzilla even flies! He can fly! You've seen it!"
You can see the full video of Chandler here.
He also noted how incredible co-star Millie Bobby Brown was--Recalling a moment during shooting where she recited dialog from another project.
"There had to be 30 seconds of dialogue, filled with Latin. It was a full-on adult paragraph that was done eight years ago. She pulled that back in her memory. And she spouted it out. I was blown away."
