Bernie Hayes, an employee of Apex Cybernetics and host of a Titan conspiracy show, extracts evidence of sinister activities at Apex’s Pensacola facility. But, Godzilla suddenly attacks the facility. Bernie stumbles on a massive device during the attack. Madison Russell, a listener to Bernie’s podcast, requests Josh to assist her in investigating Godzilla’s attacks.
Walter Simmons, Apex CEO, recruits Nathan Lind, an ex-Monarch scientist and Hollow Earth researcher who is in charge of a hunt for a source of power into the Hollow Earth, homeworld of the Titans. Nathan is initially hesitant as his brother died in an expedition to the Hollow Earth due to a strong reverse-gravitational effect. After Walter reveals that Apex developed HEAVs (specialized vessels capable of enduring the force of gravity fields), Nathan agrees.
Nathan convinces Ilene to let Kong guide them through the Hollow Earth via an outpost in Antarctica. Ilene, Nathan, and an Apex team which is led by Walter’s daughter Maia take a ride on an upgraded barge that is guided by the U.S. Navy which is fitted with a restrained and sedated Kong. Godzilla confronts the convoy, and ultimately defeats Kong but retreats after the ships disable their power and trick him into thinking they are destroyed. To keep from alerting Godzilla, Kong is airlifted to the Hollow Earth entrance, and Jia gets him to walk into the tunnel. The team follows him in the HEAVs.
Madison and Josh find Bernie, who joins their investigation with them. They enter the Apex base and find a hidden facility underground. They are accidentally trapped in an underground Hyperloop-type transportation system that takes them to Apex headquarters Hong Kong. In Hong Kong, they stumble upon a test of Mechagodzilla. It is telepathically controlled by Ren Serizawa, the son of late Ishiro Serizawa. He controls it through neural networks from the skull of a cut Ghidorah head, however, it is hampered by its power supply’s limitations. Walter is planning to harness the energy from Hollow Earth to overcome Mechagodzilla’s limitations.
In the Hollow Earth, Kong and the group find an environment similar to Skull Island. They find Kong’s ancestral throne species, and it contains remnants of an ancient battle against Godzilla’s type as well as glowing axe that was made from Dorsal plates from another Godzilla. As they identify the power source and the source of power, the Apex team sends its signature back to its Hong Kong base despite Ilene’s protests. Attracted by Mechagodzilla’s activation, Godzilla arrives in Hong Kong. Godzilla detects Kong and instantly drills a shaft into the throne room using his Atomic breath. Maia as well as the Apex team attempt to escape the chaos however their HEAV gets crushed by Kong. Kong, Nathan, Jia, Ilene and Jia climb to Hong Kong where Kong confronts Godzilla in a final fight. Kong initially gains the upper hand; however, Godzilla emerges victorious after taking out Kong.
Madison, Josh, and Bernie are snatched by security and taken to Walter. Walter orders Ren to activate Mechagodzilla despite Ren’s fears regarding the power source’s fluctuation. Now possessed by Ghidorah’s consciousness, Mechagodzilla kills Walter, inflicts electrocution on Ren and then engages Godzilla in fight, and then takes over the monster. Nathan helps Kong by dismantling the HEAV off his chest. Jia convinces him that Godzilla is the reason for his destruction. As Mechagodzilla is able to defeat both Titans, Josh short-circuits Mechagodzilla’s controls by placing Bernie’s flask liquor that is on its control panel, temporarily interrupting the mech. Godzilla unleashes Kong’s axe with his atomic breath, which allows Kong to take down Mechagodzilla. Madison, Bernie, and Josh are reunited with Mark Russell, while Godzilla and Kong reach an agreement on a truce before separating.
Then, Monarch established an observation point within the Hollow Earth. Kong is currently the ruler.
