GODZILLA: Sequel to 2014 Film Coming From Legendary & Warner Bros.

Godzilla Movie Poster

Godzilla Sequel Film Moving Forward. Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. have green-lighted a sequel film to their 2014 Godzilla movie. This is no surprise at all. Godzilla has name recognition and has just proven that it is still relevant at the national and international box office.

On what we can expect in the sequel:

Edwards has talked about what he would do with a sequel, saying he would use the same kind of restraint that he did for this one. He learned well from watching Spielberg films as the monster was only talked about for the first part of this film. And, of course, there were those reaction shots that added to the suspense.

On one of the reasons this film was successful:

The marketing on this film was excellent, with Legendary Pictures in-house team of Emily Castel, Barnaby Legg, Matthew Marolda and Peter Stone working closely with Warner Bros. and those folks who cut the trailer and did the key art and outdoor, namely vendors Trailer Park and Ignition. The promotional spots — really thought the Fiat one was great — were overseen by Gene Garlock who worked with all the Legendary team as well. Kudos all around.

On what could possibly impede the sequel:

there is an ongoing legal dispute over payments/credit on Godzilla winding its way through the courts with filmmakers Roy Lee, Dan Lin and Doug Davison who brought the property to Legendary.

Godzilla‘s plot synopsis: “An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.”

Gareth Edwards Godzilla starred Victor Rasuk, Al Sapienza, Patrick Sabongui, Primo Allon, Carson Bolde, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Juliette Binoche, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Sally Hawkins, Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn, CJ Adams, Richard T. Jones, and Brian Markinson.
