Greetings Friends and Fiends!
Ye Olde Dragon here, with breaking Kaiju News!!
Earlier today, when naming some new executives in a press release, Legendary Pictures revealed the names of two of its upcoming projects; first – GODZILLA 2 has OFFICIALLY been named…
GODZILLA: KING OF MONSTERS
Set for release on March 22, 2019, the film will serve as a sequel to both Gareth Edwards‘ GODZILLA (2014) and KONG: SKULL ISLAND (2017), and as a prequel to the 2020 film, KONG VS. GODZILLA.
The new title is rather fitting, considering that it also features the re-imagining of MOTHRA, RODAN & KING GHIDRAH, after teasing them at the 2014 SDCC.
Next up,in the same release, it mentioned the PACIFIC RIM sequel, which until now has been called, PACIFIC RIM2:MAELSTROM. That title seems to be out, as it was referred to as:
PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING
No real details on it have been released, other than some casting news, headed up by John Boyega joining the film. We also have no plot info, or confirmation of Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi‘s returns. Hopefully info more will surface soon.
Keep in mind that the press release was NOT focused on the films nor their titles, but on the executive producers and VFX producers being brought into Legendary,and what projects they’d be working on.
