Screenwriter Max Borenstein works on Warner Bros. Monsterverse since 2014, going from “Godzilla” to “Godzilla vs. Kong ”.
Left out for years due to repetitive remakes and reboots, the two creatures have returned to public taste thanks to the genius of Borenstein.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he commented on the plot innovations and how he thought to reinsert two of the most famous monsters in pop culture.
“Godzilla has appeared in 32 films in Japan since 1954. When Thomas Tull [CEO da Legendary Pictures] came to me in 2011, he said he was a fan of the monster and would like a definitive version with a more Americanized imprint, and then the idea of creating a new franchise was born. I watched the first movie [de 1954] and I realized what worked and what did not please the public.
“What I needed was to make a film that connects with audiences, using historical and cultural elements to bring Godzilla back to the world. We did that in the first two films, then in “Kong: Skull Island”. I needed to show that these films are about much more than fights between colossal creatures. The human elements are the connecting point of the plot that allows us to bond with these monsters.
Borenstein detailed that each monster represents historical moments with great impact on humanity.
“Godzilla is nothing more than a symbol of atomic bombs, as if they are coming to life. He is an agent of environmental destruction and global tragedies in the modern world. Kong is already a force of nature – neither good nor bad. When humans invade his habitat, everything is out of balance, so he takes a role opposite to Godzilla, he lives to preserve nature … in the end you end up rooting for him because you feel empathy. .
After establishing the bonds between the two characters, Borenstein explained that it was time to invest in the duel between them.
In the footage, the Legends finally face each other as the audience faces a threat caused by a human conspiracy.
Therefore, Borenstein believes that the new film presents the most ruthless plot of MonsterVerse as both monsters have gained empathy and understanding from the audience and their battles are more than gigantic shows.
“These struggles are full of emotion. People root for Godzilla or Kong because they understand that Godzilla is an animal that tries to preserve the ecosystem of this world. Kong is this displaced anti-hero who has no home or family. As they come up against the human threat from the outside world, you want them to recognize and respect each other as we come to respect them. For me, that has been the goal and the ambition of the whole franchise. “
Recalling that the feature has already debuted in some countries and has raised $ 139.4 million so far, in addition to gaining 76% critical approval for Rotten Tomatoes.
In Brazil, the premiere is scheduled for April 29.
