GODZILLA VS. KONG (2020): Warner Bros. Moves Release Date Up

King Kong Vs Godzilla

Warner Bros. Pushes Godzilla Vs. Kong Release Date Forward

Warner Bros. has opted to push the release date of its upcoming giant monster crossover Godzilla vs. Kong up by a week.

Although the studio continues to eye a 2020 premiere for the film, Warner Bros. has it the production from May 29th to May 22nd of that year. This may seem like a minute change to make for a movie (particularly one that is not set to come out for three years no less), but the change means that the Godzilla follow-up will open on Memorial Day weekend, a lucrative time slot.

The move is part of a larger shifting of movie release dates on Warner Bros.’ part, with several other movies having their premieres moved forward or just announced in some cases.

Per, the source of this story:

The New Line comedy Game Night has moved up just two days, from February 16 to Valentine’s Day on February 14, 2018. The cast includes Kyle Chandler (Bloodline), Jason Bateman (Horrible BossesArrested Development), Rachel McAdams (Midnight In ParisTrue Detective), Jesse Plemons (Black MassBridge of Spies), Kylie Bunbury (The SitterTwisted), Lamorne Morris (New GirlBarbershop: The Next Cut), and Billy Magnussen (Bridge of SpiesInto the Woods). Game Night centers around a group of couples who have one of their regularly scheduled game nights, but things go very wrong.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
