Despite delivering exactly what it advertised, Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters isn’t getting the box office love we all predicted it would. Now, the folks at Legendary may be getting cold feet about the next installment in their MonsterVerse, Godzilla vs Kong. Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. Studio chairman Toby Emmerich is considering a delay.
“[Godzilla vs. Kong] will deliver for fans in the way they were looking for. It might come out later in the year, so we can deliver an A+ movie.”
Godzilla vs Kong is still slated for a March 13th, 2020 release on IMDB, but we’ll let you know when (and if) that changes. The film is directed by Adam Wingard and stars Millie Bobby Brown, Alexander Skarsgård, and Eiza González.
If you haven’t seen Godzilla: King of the Monsters yet, check out the synopsis and trailer below.
Members of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species thought to be mere myths-rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Directed by Trick ‘r Treat and Krampus‘ Michael Dougherty, who co-wrote the film with Zach Shields, Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds, and Zhang Ziyi.
This film has been rated PG-13 for sequences of monster action violence and destruction, and for some language.
