Is GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS Really a Flop?
A couple of days ago, we reported that Legendary might be delaying the 2020 release of Godzilla vs Kong following a disappointing release for Godzilla: King of the Monsters last month. But is it fair to call the Big G’s latest outing a flop? One of our favorite UK film critics/academics doesn’t think so.
In his latest video editorial, Mr. H takes an objective look at Godzilla: King of the Monsters, incorporating information from an article released on Yahoo! Movie News: Godzilla: King of the Monsters Didn’t Roar at the Domestic Box Office but Legendary Isn’t Sweating. Give it a spin at the top of the article.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters is still playing in US theaters. 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.
