Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire is a 2024 American monster film directed by Adam Wingard. Produced by Legendary Pictures, it is a sequel to Godzilla vs. Kong (2021), and the fifth film in the MonsterVerse franchise. It is also the 38th film of the Godzilla franchise and the 13th film in the King Kong franchise. The film stars Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Dan Stevens, Kaylee Hottle, Alex Ferns, and Fala Chen. Hall, Henry, and Hottle reprise their roles from the previous film. In the film, Kong encounters more of his species in the Hollow Earth and must unite with Godzilla to stop their tyrannical leader and a powerful, climate-changing Titan from destroying the surface.

Because of the box office and streaming success of Godzilla vs. Kong during the COVID-19 pandemic, Legendary announced a sequel in March 2022 and that filming would commence later that year. In May 2022, it was announced that Wingard would return to direct and Stevens had been cast as a lead. Filming began in July 2022 in the Gold Coast, Australia, and finished in November 2022.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire premiered at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles on March 25, 2024, and was released in the United States on March 29. The film received mixed reviews from critics.

After the defeat of Mechagodzilla , Kong establishes his territory in the recently discovered Hollow Earth. While on Earth's surface, Godzilla continues to maintain order between humanity and giant monsters, known as "Titans" — defeating Scylla in Rome and resting in the Colosseum afterwards. A Monarch observation outpost stationed in the Hollow Earth picks up an unidentified signal. On the Earth’s surface, the signal causes Jia, the last member of the Iwi tribe, to experience hallucinations and flashbacks, causing her and her adopted mother, Dr. Ilene Andrews, to worry. Also sensing the signal, Godzilla leaves Rome, attacks a nuclear plant in France to absorb the radiation, and travels to the Arctic; Monarch believes Godzilla is strengthening himself for an oncoming threat.
