Godzilla and Kong are ready for the ultimate selfie

Take a trip down to the Thames this week to catch an installation to celebrate the new film from Warner Brothers. We’ve a Godzilla spanning 20 metres long with a load of LED lights, Kong appearing to burst through a portal onto London’s South Bank with a huge five metre hand crushing a phone box. Above them both is London’s iconic OXO Tower, transformed into the ‘GxK’ Tower for two nights.

It took a team of over 40 worked a total of 6,326 hours over two months  to create these two epic sculptures, which collectively weigh over a tonne so, least you can do is have a wander down there.Godzilla alone took 45 days for the team to sculpt the head and body, and 51 days were spent painting both beasts.

Fabricated from 3D reference from the filmmakers, the sculptures were built in a combination of poly, fibreglass and steel framework, as well as interactive lighting, with Godzilla containing over 70 individual pulsing pink lights to achieve the atomic effect, a spectacular addition in the new film, which sees him team up with Kong as a greater threat to earth materialises. Kong is covered in over 30m of fur, to create a hyper-realistic finish.

In this new film, out on the 19th March the almighty Kong goes into battle once together with the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence—and our own. “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire” delves further into the histories of these Titans and their origins, as well as the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond.
