The Toothache In Godzilla X Kong Was Inspired By Real Pain From A Horror Movie Set


Following an early press screening of “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire,” Adam Wingard told the journalists in attendance (including /Film’s Bill Bria) that he was drawing from the incredibly painful (if ultimately profitable) experience of directing his cult horror classic “You’re Next.” According to Wingard:

“I had a really bad toothache during the whole course of that movie, and it didn’t go away. Even during post-production, it still was there. And I’d go to all these dentists, they couldn’t figure it out. Eventually they figured out this surgery that they had to do to my gums or something to get the pain to stop. But I spent all this time with this tooth pain.”

So, the next time you watch “You’re Next,” keep in mind that its director was in complete and total agony while making this nifty little home invasion flick. No wonder it’s so nasty. But why apply this to “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire?” Per Wingard:

“[T]his movie was sort of a cathartic kind of thing. Because you’re also trying to find cool [moments], what’s something that we can all relate to? Going to the dentist — but put it on a big, absurd 300-foot-tall scale. So that was actually one of the first things that I knew I wanted to do with this film as well.”

These are the inventive little flourishes that keep what could be run-of-the-mill blockbusters from becoming listless, paint-by-numbers hackwork. Assuming that this film will be as big of a hit as its predecessor, perhaps the next film should feature King Kong going full Napoleon and suffering through a vicious bout of hemorrhoids.

“Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire” is now playing in theaters.
