Kong: Skull Island clip mentions

The King of the Monsters

Posted Feb-15-2017 6:30 PM

new clip from Kong: Skull Island features a conversation between Lt. Col. Preston Packard (played by Samuel L. Jackson) and William Randa (played by John Goodman), during which Randa openly reveals he works for Monarch, something that has already been revealed in other marketing for the film. In addition, Randa mentions that his organization specializes in "the hunt for Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organisms." Those familiar with Legendary Pictures' Godzilla (2014) will recognize this codename, abbreviated M.U.T.O., as being used to refer to Godzilla's two opponents in the film. The use of the moniker in this clip makes it evident that "M.U.T.O." is a placeholder name used by Monarch to refer to kaiju; as I believe Gareth Edwards himself once stated that M.U.T.O. was "like the UFO of kaiju." The dubiously canon prequel graphic novel Godzilla: Awakening also used the term M.U.T.O. to refer to both Godzilla and the other monster Shinomura before they were both given unique names. Just another minor continuity connection between Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island.

The clip also seems to give a little more insight into Monarch's overall objective and motivation. Whereas in Godzilla Monarch seemed concerned with the preservation and study of giant monsters, Randa makes it sound like Monarch is trying to hunt them down to protect mankind from them.
