Godzilla vs. Kong (2020) trailer release date delayed with cancellation of CinemaCon

Fans will need to wait a little longer to watch Warner Brothers' and Legendary Pictures' trailer for Godzilla vs. Kong (2020).

As expected, this year's CinemaCon has been cancelled due to the impending fear surrounding the Covid-19 Coronavirus which was just recently declared a global pandemic. Many social gatherings, conventions and sporting events have been postponed or outright cancelled to prevent the spread of the novel virus.

Previously, it was declared that Warner Brothers would have a prominent presence at CinemaCon 2020 and would be promoting their 2020 film slate - of which Godzilla vs. Kong was a major part of. A trailer preview was planned to be screened at the event to attendees, with no word regarding a public version being released online.

Godzilla vs. Kong keeps taking hits, with a delayed release date initially by nearly a year and more recently now sharing their debut week with the next James Bond installment (also delayed by the Coronavirus). The cancellation of CinemaCon only adds to the film's inability to generate adequate hype before its release this Fall.

Warner Brothers may choose to release the trailer online after all regardless of a convention exclusive but no word so far suggests that is in fact their plan. We can only hope for the time being.

At this rate it's also very possible that San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) 2020 may very well also be delayed or cancelled which would also greatly hinder Godzilla vs. Kong's marketing potential.

It's possible the film will get pushed to 2022 at this rate. They've shifted once, now facing a box office brawl with 007 and to top it off this Covid-19 virus will only be tailing off around Fall... I wouldn't be surprised if the movie gets bumped again now. Kinda want it to happen too, cause we need this one to be a box office success.

Chris,
The problem is whether or not they can via their agreement with Toho.

honestly, i think the delays are causing some hype? however monarch sciences no longer display Godzilla but does display the other three so online marketing may have started with this.

Shrugs. Oh well.

Sonuvah!!! Why can't they just release the trailer online already? They need to give us something and soon.

I think this benefits GvK. A trailer closer to the release date will prevent the hype dying down before it comes out

like Chris said, the movie could very well get delayed. With James Bond and Marvel's Eternals both coming out near GvK's current release, along with Coronavirus and late marketing, the film would do very bad in November considering all these circumstances. If it is still going to be set for its release, I would say SDCC is the best time for a trailer to be shown. However, that could be canceled as well. A trailer could drop on the internet without a big cinema event premier, but I'm not sure if that would recieve as much attention, so I think the best option would be to push it back even further (though of course I would still like to see it ASAP). I'm really not sure anymore.

Yeah, I was wondering how Toho's agreement with Legendary and WB would affect the possibility of another release date shift. I think given the circumstances, if it means they can profit more off its release by doing so then the decision would be a no-brianer.

GvK is not the only casualty (A Quiet Place II comes to mind and has no release date now). Other movies will be affected too, just like concerts and sporting events.

It might not be a bad time to consider pay per view somehow. About five or so years ago, there was talk of releasing movies in theaters and streaming (PPV) the same day but I don't think it ever happened.

In addition to A Quiet Place II, both Mulan and Fast & Furious 9 have now been moved. (I will laugh my ass off if Mulan moves to November.)

Furious 9 hurts the most. Once my most anticipated movie of 2020... now my most anticipated of 2021 I suppose.

You can't be serious about Furious 9.... LOL

They don't put the trailer online because cinemacon is specifically for industry insiders and press I think. Things there aren't meant to be shown to the public yet I guess

Chris,
Dead serious! Those movies know exactly what they want to be and they do it with heart and charm--Bad ass, over-the-top, hilariously absurd storylines that have gone so far off the deep end they don't care how unrealistic they are. But they do it with a bunch of likable characters too.

If only King of the Monsters went all-in with that kind of over-the-top charm.

I know what you mean. I've never actually gotten the chance to see a Fast and Furious film, but I am aware of the over the top plots and sequences that make those movies so iconic. KotM seemed to be caught between a grounded/serious tone and just total none sense, coming off as a bit scatterbrained and unknowing of it's tone. I personally prefer the more grounded approach G14 took, and I would have liked that a bit more in KotM, but if GvK is going to go a more crazy rout (and seems like it is) I think it should try to embrace that instead of being conflicted between two different tones. A perfect example of this among the Fast and Furious films is Aquaman, a total whack and chaotic movie that I think works perfectly. However, considering the more grounded universe that has been astablished in the MonsterVerse so far (despite KotM's more fantastical approach), I still think the aircraft carrier (or at least what we know about it) is too much.
