Godzilla x Kong confirms streaming release date

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire has confirmed its streaming release date — in the US, at least.

The film will be coming to streaming service Max on July 4, when Americans will be celebrating Independence Day and Brits will be voting in the General Election.

At the time of writing, a UK streaming for the home hasn't been announced as of yet, although it's usually Sky/NOW that get Warner Bros movies first, hopefully we'll get that and a release date sooner rather than later.

In Digital Spy's review of Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, we said that the film was the most enjoyable entry in the MonsterVerse franchise to date.

"It might not be flawless, but it's a consistently entertaining, huge-scale blockbuster and one where it feels like everybody involved finally understood the assignment," our review reads..

"It's obvious from the opening sequence that the vibe is different here. There's a sense of fun and mischief that was missing at times from previous movie, starting with Kong having a toothache through to 'I Was Made for Lovin' You' soundtracking Kong's tooling-up sequence before the epic final battle.

"You can't get away from the fact that it's all a bit ludicrous, even down to the concept that the world now just has to deal with regular titan attacks. But everybody involved is now in on the joke, rather than attempting to make Godzilla x Kong something that it isn't."

Meanwhile, the Oscar-winning Japanese film Godzilla Minus One recently dropped on Netflix in a surprise release, and actually ended up making history in the process.
