Millie Bobby Brown joins Godzilla 2

The excitement for Godzilla: King of Monsters is about to go up to Eleven. That’s because Stranger Things star and rapping extraordinaire Millie Bobby Brown will be joining Legendary’s long-awaited Godzilla sequel. More on the story below.

THR was one of the first to report on the news. Plot details are being kept under tight wraps, so we don’t know how much, if anything, has changed since Gareth Edwards left the project. When we last heard about the sequel at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, Edwards teased the appearance of legendary kaiju Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah.

The next Godzilla, which we’ve simply been calling Godzilla 2, and the sequel to Pacific Rim, previously known as Pacific Rim: Maelstrom, have both been given shiny new official titles by Legendary Pictures.

The studio has revealed that the sequel to director Gareth Edwards’ (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) 2014 Godzilla reboot will be called Godzilla: King of Monsters—inspired by Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the title of the 1956 U.S. release of Japan’s original Godzilla—while the sequel to director Guillermo del Toro‘s (Pan’s Labyrinth) own 2013 monster movie Pacific Rim will now be called Pacific Rim: Uprising.

Godzilla

It was recently announced that Legendary Pictures had hired Krampus screenwriters Michael Dougherty and Zach Shields to replace Max Borenstein on writing duties for the upcoming Godzilla 2.

This move was reportedly part of Legendary’s strategy to establish a creative brain trust that will chart the giant monster shared universe they have been developing at Warner Bros., with next March’s Kong: Skull Island set to be the next step in bringing the two iconic beasts together in a Godzilla vs. King Kong feature presently penciled in for a 2020 release.

Godzilla Gareth Edwards 2014

It has been a while since Godzilla 2 made news. Earlier this year, Gareth Edwards stepped away from the project after he and Legendary Pictures went their separate ways. Edwards has stated that he wanted to do something smaller after he’s done with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, so stepping away from the Godzilla sequel would allow him to do that. Now with Warner Bros. setting up for Kong: Skull Island, they need to start developing Godzilla 2, which would eventually lead up to Godzilla vs King Kong.

It was two years ago that Max Borenstein was reportedly confirmed to write the sequel. Now the film will be getting new writers. According to a new report, Krampus writing duo Michael Dougherty and Zach Shields will now pen the script. More on the story below.

Great Detective Pikachu

When Legendary Pictures acquired the rights to make a Pokemon movie a month ago, it was following the successful launch of the mobile smartphone game Pokemon Go. Basically, the production company was taking advantage of the resurgence.

While the games provide a wealth of source material to work with, Legendary will not be using any of it. Instead, they will be making an adaptation of recent Japanese title Great Detective Pikachu. Now Guardians of the Galaxy writer Nicole Perlman and Gravity Falls animated series scribe Alex Hirsch are close to writing the adaptation. More on the story below.

Scott Eastwood

Even with all the problems it had, interest in Pacific Rim 2 remains strong. The film recently cast John Boyega as son to Idris Elba’s character, and scheduled a February 2018 release date.

But it appears that he won’t be the only actor to be in the film. According to new reports, Scott Eastwood – Clint Eastwood’s son – may be joining Boyega for the larger-than-life bouts between the Kaiju and the Jaegers. More on the story below.

King Kong Peter Jackson film

It’s been a little while since we’ve heard about the epic cinematic showdown Godzilla vs. King Kong that’s currently scheduled for release in 2020. Since the movie was announced monster movie fans, while excited by the idea, have wondered: just how in the hell does Kong stand even the slightest chance of hanging with the mighty Godzilla?

This article doesn’t answer that question, but it does give us a better idea of where things are heading. During Warner Brothers’ CineEurope presentation an extended preview of the next King Kong movie, titled Kong: Skull Island, was shown featuring stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, and John C. Reilly. But the real news came from director Jordon Vogt-Roberts, who revealed just how big this latest version of Kong will be. Hint: it dwarfs most other versions of the King of the Apes.

Movie Review: ‘Warcraft’

Warcraft Movie Legendary Pictures

Warcraft
Director: Duncan Jones
Screenwriter: Charles Leavitt and Duncan Jones
Cast: Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Robert Kazinsky, and Daniel Wu
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 123 Minutes
Release Date: June 10th, 2016

It’s not easy being a movie adaptation based on a very popular video game, especially one that has a huge fanbase like “World of Warcraft.” The long-running MMORPG has been a part of the gaming culture for the better part of 20 years, and with that kind of history, there is bound to be a number of stories to work with at anyone’s disposal. So with Warcraft, it was up to Duncan Jones (Moon) to go straight back to the beginning where it all started, and give us a film that both players and non-gamers can appreciate, by tapping into the source material and using the mythology of the fantasy genre.

However, the film does not deliver. In fact, it falls very short of saving the kingdom and lets the castle fall into the enemy known as boredom. Check out my full review below.
