Re: MonsterVerse sequel (D: Wingard) - possibly Son of Kong

Unfortunate that they want a round 2. Just bring the in the aliens and their kaiju. And make it a tag team again against Megalon and Gigan. Then they can introduce Jet Jaguar. Then they can work their way up to Biollante and Destroyah.

I'd also like to see them create some new Kaiju, I liked the MUTOs from the first film.

Kong: Skull Island was the only one of these movies worth a damn. Sure, give us spectacle, but don't try to shoehorn even more characters and relationships we don't give a damn about. I think they had the character/monster fights ratio balanced best in that movie.

Warner Bros., the studio behind “Dune,” also announced that an untitled “Godzilla vs. Kong” film will be released on March 15, 2024.

Interesting press-ish release. Because nobody would know who Warner Bros is if not for Dune

The article it was from mentioned the Dune date change first, so I guess that is why they worded it that way.

Filming has begun in the Gold Coast of Australia. Looks like it's being used as Brazil.



If you watch the news clip, you can hear the hype man telling the beach-goers to react to something coming from the ocean. Obviously all that will be done in post much later.

Excellent. Although I didn’t much care for GvK, I still love these monsters.

The new monster looks like it's a hybrid of Godzilla and Kong. Interesting.

Is that "Godzilla ex Kong" or "Godzilla times Kong"?

I have enjoyed all four of the films so far. I even took them off the shelf and put them next to the player to watch last night. Going to try to watch Godzilla and Skull Island later. Can't wait.

I'm thinking the latter. Then again, it may be a Japan thing. I've seen a lot of anime crossovers and Japanese videogames that use X instead of VS.

If anyone is a fan of this franchise and likes video games as well, Pinball FX just released a 3-table pinball pack for $15. It has Kong, Godzilla and Godzilla vs Kong tables. They're all pretty fun and well animated.

In Japan, to my knowledge, it's usually read as "cross" or just ignored/used to indictate a pause. Like the videogame NAMCO X Capcom is read as "NAMCO cross Capcom", but the anime Spy X Family is just read as "Spy Family". I think it just indicates a joining of two things, not necessarily a conflict. It's definitely used that way in sneaker culture, when they do collabs (Nike X Off-White, for example)

That certainly makes sense since the rumoured title of the this movie was Godzilla and Kong, given it's supposed to be a team up rather than a remach.

Truth be told, it did cross my mind that the title might be a double entendre.

My brain is stuck reading it “Godzilla by Kong” like SXSW.
