Godzilla Vs. Kong is stomping into theaters and HBO Max today! And despite a lot of POC issues, the movie is admittedly a good time, and I’d be remiss if I said you shouldn’t see it. The spectacle and action is well worth the price of admission.
We were fortunate enough to be given the chance to interview director Adam Wingard recently, and though a lot of Adam’s work in the past has been problematic (this film included), he was still gracious enough to lend us four minutes of his time to discuss his film. I’d be lying if I said there wasn’t more I would have loved to ask, particularly when it comes to the subject of Asian representation in his films — something I plan to do so should I ever be afforded the same opportunity to sit down with him for future installments or movies. But alas, four minutes is all we were given for now.
If you’d like to know more about Adam’s inspirations behind the movie, as well as why Hong Kong was the chosen setting for the film’s climax, feel free to watch the interview below:
