Godzilla: King of Monsters (2019):Godzilla (2014), the thirtieth film in the legendary Godzilla franchise that began way back in 1954, was met with a substantial amount of positive feedback for its subtle balance of intense drama and monster feature. The film grossed $9.3 million in North America at early Thursday screenings, one of the best late-night openings for a non-sequel, and $93.2 million for the entire weekend, making it the fifth highest opening weekend in 2014. Its opening weekend gross broke the records for the highest weekend debuts for a disaster/creature film. But everyone seemed to agree that the creators were merely laying the foundations for something much bigger to come,and this assumption was confirmed after a sequel to the science fiction monster film was announced, which is currently pegged to hit the silver screens sometime in 2019 at the earliest.
Reports by Deadline confirm that Legendary Pictures has sealed a deal, signing Max Borenstein to writeGodzilla2.Borenstein made his name by penning the 2014 Godzilla, which took the iconic movie monster on a world-trekking (or world-wrecking) adventure to battle two massive, merciless MUTOs.Taking place after the events of Godzilla (2014), Godzilla 2 also known asGodzilla: King of Monsterswill feature not one, not two, but three additional monsters! The giant moth guardian Mothra, Rodan and the infamous three-headed dragon King Ghidorah! Although there have been no confirmed plot reports from the original production house itself, the movie is actually pegged to go down in these lines of events which follow deep detail into the Godzilla universe.
According to IMDB,Michael Doughertyis slated to replace Gareth Edwards in the director chair for this upcoming sequel whileMax Borensteinwill resume his role of the screenplay writer. Currently, in the pre-production stage, there have no confirmed reports regarding the list of actors who will feature in the sequel. For now, Godzilla: King of Monsters is slated for a 2019 release date.
