The story unfolds in a world where Titans clash and ancient evils threaten to obliterate everything in their path. The narrative begins with the discovery of a hidden realm within the primordial Hollow Earth, inhabited by a community of apes led by Skar King, a formidable simian Titan wielding a weapon crafted from the remains of other Titans.

Living in solitude in the depths of Hollow Earth, Kong senses a looming threat and enlists the help of his former rival, Godzilla, Earth’s defender.

Meanwhile, Dr. Ilene Andrews (Rebecca Hall), a scientist at Monarch, detects sinister electromagnetic signals from Hollow Earth.
