Details Emerge on Godzilla vs. King Kong Crossover Movie

If you follow Hollywood politics, you know that Legendary Pictures, the company who have had a hand in everything from The Dark Knight to Jurassic World, is currently in a bit of a beef with Universal. After years of developing Kong: Skull Island for the studio, Legendary moved the project over to Warner Bros., where the legendary ape could mingle with the new Godzilla in a future movie. This saga of money and creative disagreements and big personalities was already interesting, but then it started dropping details about what we could expect from future King Kong and Godzilla movies.

‘Kong: Skull Island’ Moves to Warner Bros. Hinting at ‘Godzilla’ Crossover

Here’s a bit of news that will definitely raise an eyebrow or two: Legendary Pictures executive Thomas Tull is relocating Kong: Skull Island from its home at Universal over to Warner Bros., where it will join Legendary’s other famous monster, Godzilla. It’s a move that obviously hints at a crossover between the two titans, who previously came to blows in 1962's King Kong vs. Godzilla.

No, There’s Not Going to be a Godzilla and ‘Pacific Rim’ Crossover

It’s the kind of rumor that looks really great in a headline. What if a Pacific Rim sequel brought Godzilla, the King of the Monsters, into the fold? What if director Guillermo del Toro’s giant robots battled the legendary creature in the ultimate battle royale? The rumor has been gaining steam and we hate to be the ones to burst anyone’s bubble, but this isn’t going to happen.

‘Godzilla’ Star Bryan Cranston Doesn’t Like the Way His Character Was Handled

by Britt Hayes August 15, 2015 @ 1:33 PM
Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla was received mostly well, though it did evoke some divisive reactions — some people liked the characters, but hated the lack of actual Godzilla, while others praised Edwards for his restraint with the classic movie monster (I am in this camp) and criticized the underdeveloped characters (also in this one). At least one actor sides with the latter group: Bryan Cranston isn’t very happy about the way his character was handled in the movie.

Toho Confirms the First Japanese ‘Godzilla’ Movie in Over a Decade

by Jacob Hall December 8, 2014 @ 11:57 AM
For the better part of 50 years, the Japanese movie studio Toho released new ‘Godzilla’ movies like clockwork. With the exception of a few lengthy breaks (including much of the ‘80s), a new film starring the King of the Monsters would arrive every two years at the minimum. Not even the deplorable 1998 American film could slow ‘em down. And then ‘Godzilla: Final Wars’ arrived in 2004 and the title proved accurate: Japan has not made a new Godzilla film since. Well, that’s about to change. For the first time in a decade, Toho is moving forward with a new film starring the city-wrecking, fire-breathing monster icon.

Warner Bros. and Legendary
We learned a lot from this year's Comic-Con about Legendary's plans for some epic monster movie action in the future, from the announcement of a 'King Kong' prequel with 'Skull Island' and the confirmation of 'Godzilla 2.' Max Borenstein has quickly become the studio's go-to writer for their tentpole projects, and the man who penned the first 'Godzilla' will now return to script the sequel.

As yet another star-studded and box office-busting summer moviegoing season ends this weekend, it's the perfect time to look back at the months that gave us enough entertainment to pad our culture-consuming bellies until it's time for the Oscar...

'Minority Report' TV Series: Steven Spielberg Hires 'Godzilla' Writer to Develop?

by Kevin Fitzpatrick August 21, 2014 @ 3:15 PM
We'd be the first ones to talk your ear off about the future of movies being given the TV treatment, but the latest entry makes the idea surprisingly literal. A new report suggests that Steven Spielberg has hired 'Godzilla' writer Max Borenstein to develop a TV series based around 2002 PreCrime thriller 'Minority Report,' but will the adaptation end up arrested before it even begins?

Comic-Con 2014: 'Godzilla 2' Officially Announced; Three New Monsters Revealed

Perhaps this time we will let "our hero" Godzilla get some actual rest before dispatching him to battle the world's other major MUTOs? Is that too much to ask? We've known for months that Legendary is eager to stay in the 'Godzilla' business after the success of this summer's awesome Gareth Edwards' feature film -- after all, they did announce a sequel to the film within days of it hitting the big screen -- but there have been plenty of lingering questions as to when that would happen and who (or what) we could expect to see in the next feature.
