After the success of “Godzilla” in 2014, Warner Bros. is starting to build out their “Monster Cinematic Universe” with the release of “Kong: Skull Island” earlier this year. Now WB started production on “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” to keep expanding it.
I really liked “Godzilla” and I was entertained enough with “Kong: Skull Island,” so it’s going to be fun to see what WB does with the “Godzilla” sequel. One day, we’ll see Godzilla and King Kong duke it out in one epic movie!
Director Gareth Edwards did a great job with “Godzilla” in 2014, so let’s see what Michael Dougherty can do for “Godzilla: King of the Monsters.” Dougherty directed “Krampus” and “Trick ‘r Treat,” so he’s used to the horror genre. Maybe he can add a little more horror and terror to Godzilla’s world! Read the synopsis below:
The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members 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.
The Godzilla sequel 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. directed by Michael Dougherty
“Godzilla: King of the Monsters” hits theaters on March 22, 2019.
