Considering that blockbuster films roll one into the next and that right now a lot of film and TV is more expensive to make and harder to make with covid restrictions and risks they might well hold back those films for longer, knowing that now isn't the prime time to invest the money they would make into new ventures. So they can hold things in limbo and hopefully ride it out. I would imagine the studios can survive pretty well - the ones that will suffer are the cinema groups. Just like restaurants and discos and other venues that rely on public attendance, they will continue to bleed and suffer until such time as the public can flock through their doors once again.

Im wondering if al of this will cause any of the major films studios to fold . I thinking that at the very least, some production companies might fold and go out of business. The chime chains are certainly in trouble.

Yes. the humans have dull dialogue, Kong is too big if we are going to be fair about it, and Godzilla is still fat.

I prefer the 1962 trailer despite the ugly ape suit:
