These big friends are ready to fight. They can’t wait.

As reported by Deadline, Godzilla vs. Kong, the latest Legendary monster movie and the third Godzilla one, will hit HBO Max a full two months ahead of schedule. Instead of premiering on May 21, it’ll be showing up on March 26. This comes after Warner Bros. reached an agreement with Legendary about its decision to try to release its entire film slate for 2021 on HBO Max in the US for streaming.

With this deal, the movie will simultaneously release in US theatres and on HBO Max. As a sequel to the prior Legendary monster movies, Godzilla vs. Kong will see the two titans clash as a team of tiny humans seek to unravel further mysteries of these giant, incredible beasts. But let’s be real, we’re mostly here to see ‘em fight. I’m rooting for Godzilla.

Godzilla vs. Kong comes out on March 26 in the US, but is still currently dated for May 20 in Australia. Stay tuned for an updated date.
