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."
Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Kyle Chandler (Super 8, Friday Night Lights), Vera Farmiga (The Departed), O'Shea Jackson (Straight Outta Compton), Aisha Hinds (If I Stay), Anthony Ramos (Hamilton), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Randy Havens (Stranger Things), Ken Watanabe, (Godzilla), Sally Hawkins (Godzilla), Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), Bradley Whitford (Get Out, West Wing) and Zhang Ziyi (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon).
