Scheduled for release on March 22, 2019, the sequel to the 2014 American movie Godzilla will finally come to the screens with the title: Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
The 33rd film in the Godzilla franchise, there was originally a typo on the press release sent out, indicating it was to be called Godzilla: King of Monsters… but they left out the “the”.
So… get your kaiju on… Godzilla will be back to thrill the global audiences soon enough.
I wouldn’t expect any major design change to Godzilla… but who the heck knows? That poor radioactive lizard has been changing his looks like a… add sexist comment here.
The script is written by Dougherty, Zach Shields, and Max Borenstein, and directed by Michael Dougherty.
Dougherty, 42, is an American film director, producer and screenwriter.
He directed: Trick ‘r Treat (2007); Making Friends (2010); and Krampus (2015).
He wrote: X2 (2003 - X-Men United); Urban Legends: Bloody Mary (2005); Superman Returns (2006); Trick ‘r Treat; Making Friends; Krampus; and X-Men: Apocalypse (2016).
Hmm… not a fantastic track record… though I enjoyed the last X-Men flick, despite its poor reviews…. mostly because I was there at the beginning of the whole Apocalypse comic book stuff.
Superman Returns - ugh.
While I don’t mind a good horror flick, I don’t feel inclined to seek them out… so I can’t say if the rest of his work is any good.
Production is slated to start on June 19, 2017, with shooting to begin in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be produced by Legendary Pictures, distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures (worldwide), and by Toho in Japan.
What we know so far, is that it will star: Kyle Chandler—don’t really know him, so I’ll reserve judgement—and as his daughter in the movie, Millie Bobby Brown… whom some of you might know from the awesome Netflix television show: Stranger Things, where she plays the psionic Eleven.
If the movie poster below is to be believed, the main baddie for Godzilla to burn will be Mothra - but it could also just be fan art.
And not some other stupid insect creatures.
I can only hope that means a return of the mini Japanese ladies singing:
