Is 'Godzilla 2' Moving Forward?

Writer Max Borenstein gives clues as to the sequel's chances. Story by Matt Cummings When the rebooted Godzilla arrived in 2014, audiences rewarded it with a $93 million opening weekend and a worldwide haul of over $528m. But it's also safe to say that fans were disappointed at the lack of scenes (only 8 minutes total) which actually featured the big guy in all his glory. So when Legendary Pictures announced it was moving forward with a planned June 8, 2018 release, fans were understandably worried that he might get the same treatment. From Screenwriter Max Borstein's recent comments, it seems like we have little to fear. According to a recent interview with Collider, Borenstein - who's working on the Fox Television adaptation of Minority Report - had this to say about what's coming in the sequel: "I’m writing it now, and it’s really going to be great. I don’t want to go off book and tell you anything that I’m not allowed to tell you. The res

Classic Monsters To Appear In Godzilla 2

After this summer's reboot of Godzilla scared up an impressive $491 million worldwide, a sequel seemed assured … until Star Wars came calling. "Unfortunately, our director Gareth Edwards is locked up in a galaxy far, far away," said Legendary Pictures chief Thomas Tull let us know at Comic-Con. Indeed, after Edwards was selected to helm one of the coming Star Wars spinoffs, Hollywood wondered whether Legendary would press on with a new Godzilla film without him … but in a special video message from Edwards that just played at Hall H, the director thanked fans for their support and revealed, "It means we get to make another one. I'll be back to do Godzilla 2 ." And what might we see in the sequel? Tull showed another new video, reminiscent of Godzilla's opening-credits sequence, when three monsters turn up in classified footage: Godzilla's famous foes Rodan, Mothra, and Ghidorah . "There is still one secret that remains hidden," teas

#Godzilla Review: Lumbers Along But Ultimately Delivers

After lumbering through the first hour, Godzilla delivers big time. Review by: Matt Cummings It's uncommon for a summer blockbuster to favor story over flashy effects and slow-motion action set pieces, but Director Gareth Edwards's Godzilla pushes convention aside to deliver a smart disaster film that takes a little too long to show our favorite Kaiju. When nuclear physicist Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston) loses his wife/colleague to a nuclear meltdown in Japan, he discovers that the event was no accident, but caused by a creature called a MUTO (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism). This beast feeds on radiation, tearing down cities and consuming spent nuclear material for unknown reasons. But as 15 years pass, the world realizes this isn't the only problem they must face: a 350 foot monster which the Japanese call Godzilla is hunting the newly-hatched MUTO as part of its prehistoric DNA. Soon, Brody's son Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) becomes involved w
