Godzilla vs. Kong (May 29, 2020)

Post by WyldeMan on 10/14/2015, 6:34 pm


Warner Bros. and Legendary are teaming up on a 2020 movie “Godzilla vs. Kong,” representing the official unification of the two monster franchises.

The companies jointly announced Wednesday that the basis for the film would be an “ecosystem” of giant super-species, both classic and new, as the Monarch organization that uncovered Godzilla in the 2014 film expands its mission in multiple releases.

The first films in the partnership have already been announced: “Kong: Skull Island,” which opens on March 10, 2017, and “Godzilla 2” on June 8, 2018.

The announcement noted that while Legendary maintains its new home at Universal Pictures, the Godzilla films and the Kong origin film will be distributed via Warner Bros.

Production on “Kong: Skull Island,” which had been at Universal until recently, begins Oct. 19 with Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and “Straight Outta Compton” actors Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell.

“Kong: Skull Island” will be set in the mysterious home of the king of the apes as a team of explorers ventures deep inside the island. Jordan Vogt-Roberts is directing from a script by Max Borenstein, John Gatins and Dan Gilroy. Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni will produce with Mary Parent.

Tull said in a statement: “Audiences really responded to Godzilla. Today, I’m excited to reveal that film was only the beginning of an epic new entertainment universe. As a lifelong fan of these characters, I’ve always wanted to see the ultimate showdown, and today we’re pleased to be announcing that and more.”

Warner Bros. topper Kevin Tsujihara said in a statement: “Working with our partners at Legendary, we enjoyed tremendous creative and commercial success with ‘Godzilla.’ It’s great to be able to revisit these characters and help create a franchise with so many creative possibilities for filmmakers. Fans love these big, globally iconic films and it doesn’t get any bigger than this.”

Warner Bros. and Legendary announced on Aug. 14 that they had scheduled “Godzilla 2” for June 8, 2018, with Gareth Edwards returning as director of the monster movie sequel. At Comic-Con in July, Legendary disclosed that Godzilla would be joined by Mothra, Rodan and Ghidorah in the next movie.

“Godzilla” grossed $529 million worldwide. Legendary financed 75% of the $160 million budget, with Warner providing the rest and the companies splitting marketing costs.

Pacific Rim 2 was somehow going to be connected to the new monster universe but they have seemed to have scrapped plans for that. Now it's just Kong and Godzilla.

With them all flying under the WB and Legendary banner, that is entirely possible.

That's exactly why I said it. There's a reason Pacific Rim 2 was put on hold, and this is why. If Godzilla v Kong is a hit, they'll bring Pacific Rim into the fold. Guaranteed.

It's something that was rumored before they even merged but the sudden halt of PR2 definitely leads credence to a massive monster mashup rumor. Though that would probably be like ten years away at this point so I don't know if it'd be smart to halt PR2 for that or if its because they'd like to redirect the franchise in that direction. GDT keeps having such horrible luck with his huge franchises, the man is a genius and should be given far more respect by the studios.

Sadly I also think it's also the audience. People need to start seeing his movies. He gives us a great horror movie right before Halloween and it ends up doing poorly at the BO.

Paranormal Activity movies killed at this time of year and they are no where near as good as a GDT film.

‘Godzilla 2,’ ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Stomp Out New Release Dates
Warner Bros. has announced it is moving Gareth Edwards‘ “Godzilla 2” from June 8, 2018 to March 22, 2019. The studio has also dated its creature feature “Godzilla vs. Kong” for May 29, 2020.

Additionally, the studio will release an untitled event film on Dec. 25, 2018, while an untitled DC movie is moving from June 19, 2020 to July 24, 2020.

WB’s decision moves “Godzilla 2” off the same date as Paramount’s “Transformers 6,” though it will now square off against Paramount’s original animated movie “Amusement Park,” which is expected to cater to a younger audience.

The monster mash-up “Godzilla vs. Kong” currently has its release date all to itself, as the only other movie currently slated to open that month is an untitled Marvel movie in early May.

Meanwhile, WB’s event film will go head-to-head with an untitled, live-action Disney movie that opens the same day, while Sony’s animated “Spider-Man” movie will open four days earlier on Dec. 21.

Finally, the untitled DC movie, which is believed to be “Green Lantern Corps,” will now arrive two weeks after new films from Marvel and Illumination.

’Godzilla vs. Kong’ Monster Mash-Up Movie Grabs Indie Filmmaker Adam Wingard to Direct
Indie horror wunderkind Adam Wingard has signed on to direct the next blockbuster in Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment’s growing monster franchise, “Godzilla Vs. Kong.”

Quite prolific at 34-years-old, Wingard cut his teeth on micro-budget horrors “Pop Skull” and “A Horrible Way to Die,” often working with indie mainstay Joe Swanberg. His more recent film, “The Guest,” starred Dan Stevens and premiered at Sundance in 2014. He has been moving into bigger budget indies with his last two projects, a 2016 follow-up to “Blair Witch,” and “Death Note,” a manga adaptation set for an August release.

“Godzilla Vs. Kong” will be the fourth entry to Legendary and Warner Bros. monster universe, populated with classic creatures of old Hollywood. “Godzilla” came out in 2014; last year’s “Kong: Skull Island” was a major box-office success but received mixed reviews. A “Godzilla” sequel is currently in production, starring Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, and Milly Bobby Brown.

The script was finished in March, by a writers’ team helmed by Terry Rossio, the “Aladdin” scribe with franchise-writing chops for the many iterations of “Pirates of the Carribean.”

Wingard is a bold and inspired choice; hopefully the studio gives him reign to bring the kind of innovative horror comedy for which he is known. Now all we need is a Swanberg cameo.
