The runtime for Legendary and Warner Brothers' Godzilla vs. Kong (2020) movie is said to be under 2 hours long.

This weekend, we reported that a new test screening for Adam Wingard's Godzilla vs. Kong was held at an undisclosed location and following said screening, reactions began to hit the web with one attendee in particular praising the film - suggesting it's actually the best Monsterverse movie yet! Looking past the positive praise however, the attendee also mentioned the film's runtime was under 2 hours long.

In actuality, they suggest the runtime is closer to 1 hour and 45 minutes long, but they stress the runtime does not compromise the film's plot at all and no crucial developments are left out.

Godzilla vs. Kong is a massive culmination of two Monsterverse titles. It is essentially the Endgame of the Monsterverse and will determine whether or not the Godzilla cinematic universe continues on at Warner Brothers after this year.

That being said, it is impressive to hear the film will run for less than 2 hours but will still provide enough substance to support a rather heavy plot. There are going to be a lot of players in Godzilla vs. Kong, not just the titular characters, so we hope the runtime does not affect the film's overall quality and pacing.

Uh huh.

As long as the pacing is good, 105 minutes should be ok.

Looking at the runtimes of past Godzilla movies, I noticed that a lot of them actually seem to run under two hours. So this isn't really anything new, I don't think.

so if its less than 2 hours it must be 1:59:59

Just a little joke

But for real less than 2 hours, they might go straight into the final battle quick.

Most Godzilla movies have a similar run time... but for the Monsterverse, I'm not sure. It probably will be a similar pacing to KOTM, which worries me a bit, but it's probably not going to be god awful like Final Wars.

Due to the spoiler-filled toys that were leaked recently (from Playmates I believe?), it would appear that GvK has the potential of being very scattered, with too many subplots and and forced character inclusions (no spoilers). However, the makers of the film could have deffinately found a way to make it work. So in a ~110 minute runtime, the movie can go two ways: it could be a well paced, gripping, focused blockbuster, or a chaotic, scatterbrained, crammed disaster with too much on its plate... who knows ¯_('-')_/¯

Please don't let this be Final Wars

It almost deffinately won't, considering the title is Godzilla vs Kong. If it were along the lines of Final Wars, such as inclusions of several classic monsters, the film would be cheating the audience, and it would probably make little profit as a result. Also, fitting in an end battle between Godzilla and Kong with a definate winner amongst all that would be way too scattered, especially in a less-than 2 hour movie, so I don't think that will be the case.
