Dune: Part Two, aka Dune 2, was the highest-grossing film for a long time until Inside Out 2 removed its crown. Meanwhile, Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire also performed well at the box office and became the highest-grossing MonsterVerse movie, beating Kong: Skull Island’s global haul. Now, both these movies were produced by Legendary Pictures and distributed by Warner Bros Pictures, and the latter has announced the release dates of their sequels – Dune 3, aka Dune Messiah, and Godzilla x Kong’s sequel.

It is the fifth film in the franchise, and it gradually became the franchise’s top-grosser. Adam Wingard directed it. Rebecca Hall, Bryan Tyree Henry, Dan Stevens, and others were featured in the movie. In this film, the Hollow Earth was explored, and the main villain was the tyrannical Skar King and frost-breathing Shimo. King Kong had to team up with Godzilla to fight against these threats.
