‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Moved From March to November 2020

Fans of boxing and MMA know that it is often difficult to schedule a championship match, and when it comes to a heavyweight monster showdown, this may also be the case. Warner Bros. and Legendary’s Godzilla vs. Kong has been delayed yet again, moving from the previously scheduled March 13, 2020 date to November 20, 2020.

This is the second time that the release date of Godzilla vs. Kong has been changed. Originally, the film was scheduled to hit theaters in the summer of 2020, before being fast-tracked into March.  The giant monster mash (directed by Adam Wingard) stars Alexander Skarsgard, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, and Brian Tyree Henry. read more

‘Godzilla Vs. Kong’ Adds Eiza Gonzalez to the MonsterVerse

The epic battle between two legendary cinematic monsters is really starting to round into form.  In an exclusive story, Deadline is reporting that Eiza Gonzalez (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series) will be joining the cast of Godzilla Vs. Kong in an as yet-unknown capacity.  Gonzalez will be joining a killer cast that has already been confirmed including Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), and Brian Tyree Henry (the upcoming Child’s Play reboot.)

Godzilla Vs. Kong will be directed by Adam Wingard (Blair Witch, HNN favorite V/H/S).  The anticipated film will represent the fourth installment in the “MonsterVerse” cinematic universe, a collaboration between Legendary Entertainment and Warner Bros. aimed at portraying the irresistible force meeting the immovable object on the big screen.  It follows in the mammoth footsteps of 2014’s Godzilla, 2017’s Kong: Skull Island and the forthcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019.)  While only halfway through the timeline, the series has been wildly successful thus far grossing over $1 billion worldwide. read more

Horror Favorites Michael Dougherty & Zach Shields To Write Godzilla 2

Variety has reported that Michael Dougherty and Zach Shields will be writing the script to the highly anticipated 2019 Legendary Pictures film, Godzilla 2. The two have most recently worked for Legendary on last year’s Krampus, which was written by them (along with Todd Casey) and directed by Dougherty.

Michael Dougherty’s other instant horror classic was 2007’s Trick ‘r Treat. Originally released straight to video by Warner Bros., the film has since gained a rabid fanbase; and new content based on the franchise continues to be produced to this day. Both Trick ‘r Treat and Krampus have been lauded by fans and critics for their stylistic portrayals of their monster characters, which hearken back to the older days of movie monster filmmaking. read more
