‘King Kong vs. Godzilla’ Movie Summary

In King Kong vs. Godzilla, Mr. Tako is the chairman of a pharmaceutical company. When he learns some berries that grow on Farou Island are a miracle cure, he wants them at any cost. The natives on that island worship a god they call King Kong. They claim he’s grown to his giant size from eating those berries. Tako now figures Kong is the perfect way to promote his new product. So, he’s bringing Kong back with the berries too.

Meanwhile, as that expedition takes place, some American pilots discover Godzilla still frozen in the ice from the 1955 movie. In time, he rampages uncontrolled through the Japanese countryside as Tako brings Kong back to the mainland. When he breaks free too, and swims towards Japan, that leads him on a collision course with the mighty Godzilla.
