Warner Brother and Legendary Pictures announced today that Godzilla 2 has secured the release date of June 8, 2018, 4 years after the widely popular remake that was released in May of this year. It was teased at Comic Con this year that Gareth Edwards plans on including Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. Legendary also teased the possibility of a crossover film between Godzilla and King Kong. Though the remake of Godzilla was extremely flawed I have high hopes for any sequels. It seems that Legendary and Warner Brothers are attempting to milk the cow for all it’s worth. Now matter the film property, studios are always going to try and franchise any of them, it’s the name of the game. Marvel has created a shared universe and it seems that even Godzilla, King Kong, and hell even Pacific Rim has been teased to become all part of a shared universe. I think this ruins any possibility to have creativity or originality but only the possibility to gain money no matter what.
I didn’t see Angelina Jolie’s last film In the Land of Blood and Honey but I haven’t heard too many nice things about it. Given that it was her first time directing you can’t always make an amazing film. I don’t know the story behind her new film Unbroken but the talent behind it has me intrigued. Written by the Coen Brothers and shot by Roger Deakins, a man who still hasn’t won an Oscar for his amazing work. This could either be a great film or a mediocre one but I don’t see it being a terrible one.
