The last time Godzilla and Kong shared the movie screen was in the 1962 Japanese movie ‘King Kong vs Godzilla.’

Alexander Skarsgard who plays geologist Nathan Lind, shared that the crew filmed in both Hawaii and Australia. 

“It’s quite different for ‘The Aftermath’, and from most movies I’ve been doing the past two years. I’ve done a lot of slightly more cerebral, emotionally intense dramas. So, in that way, it was quite cathartic and it was exciting to something big and fun and I love the character I play in it and visually it’s pretty extraordinary.”
