Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment's Godzilla: King of the Monsters premiered to mixed reviews and a smaller box office opening than expected. The Godzilla sequel is so far the least successful installment in the Monsterverse, the multimedia franchise and shared fictional universe centered around classic monsters Godzilla and King Kong. However, Warner Bros. studio chairman Toby Emmerich seems confident 2020's Godzilla vs. Kong will satisfy kaiju fans.
According to Deadline, Emmerich dismissed talk of franchise fatigue at the Produced By conference, explaining Godzilla vs. Kong -- which will see the two legendary beasts battle each other -- is going to "deliver for fans in the way they were looking for [in the latest Godzilla]. It might come out later in the year, so we can deliver an A+ movie."
Although Godzilla vs. Kong is slated for March 13, 2020, Emmerich's statement indicates that date could be pushed back to perfect the film. Directed by Adam Wingard, the film stars Kyle Chandler, Ziyi Zhang, Millie Bobby Brown, Danai Gurira, Brian Tyree Henry, Demian Bichir, Alexander Skarsgard, Jessica Henwick and Julian Dennison.
Directed by Michael Dougherty, Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds and Zhang Ziyi. The movie is now in theaters.
