After a period of peace between titans and humanity, Godzilla suddenly starts attacking research facilities across the globe. To the dismay of Madison Russell (Millie Bobby Brown), whose life Godzilla previously saved, the world appears to be preparing for war. With the help of her friend Josh (Julian Dennison), Madison decides to find out why Godzilla is behaving strangely. She contacts the elusive conspiracy theorist and amateur titan sleuth, Bernie (Brian Tyree Henry).
On the other side of the globe, Walter Simmons (Demián Bichir), a wealthy tech businessman, recruits Nathan Lind (Alexander Skarsgård), a disgraced theoretical physicist. Simmons wants Lind to locate a mysterious energy source that will allow them to defeat Godzilla. Believing King Kong can lead them to the source, Lind enlists Ilene Andrews (Rebecca Hall), a King Kong researcher, to help him. In doing so, Nathan unknowingly brings along the one person who can communicate with Kong, Jia (Kaylee Hottle), a young Skull Island native.
As a new threat looms, King Kong and Godzilla battle for the title of alpha titan, but they must ultimately learn to work together to save humanity and each other.
