‘Godzilla 2’ Release Moved to May 2019

Have you been waiting for some classic kaiju smashing action?  Didn’t get your fill from Pacific Rim 2 or Rampage?  If so, you will have to wait a few extra months for “The King of All Monsters” to return to the silver screen, as Warner Brothers Pictures has just moved Godzilla 2 from March to May 2019.

Although other news outlets have reported that this may be a move that was motivated by the studios confidence with the film, it is more likely about avoiding other “monster films”.  Godzilla 2’s original release date was March 22, which seemed like a good idea at the time as it avoided the bulk of the summer blockbusters and followed the pattern of last year’s Kong: Skull Island which also debuted in March.

And as far as competition goes, the highly anticipated Captain Marvel will be released on March 8, 2019 (which would have given Godzilla 2 some stiff competition even in its third week of release). The film will reportedly set up the Avengers: Infinity War sequel and is also notable as the first female lead hero tale from Marvel Studios.

Regardless of the reason, fans will have to wait a little longer to see the modern versions of King Ghidorah, Rodan, and possibly more monsters (eventually leading to a heavy weight prize fight between Godzilla and King Kong in 2020) in Godzilla 2.
