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?

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.

The recent shakeup between Legendary and Universal Pictures has had a major effect on their partnership. According to a new report last week’s Kong: Skull Island move from Universal to Warner Bros. is a telling sign that there is a strain between the two parties.

But since Universal never officially entered production on Kong, it’s no skin off their back, and as a result of the move, WB has now signed a three-picture deal with Legendary that will have them distribute Skull Island, Godzilla 2, and the untitled Godzilla vs. King Kong film. More on the story below.

King Kong Peter Jackson film

Two legendary beasts are about to fight for the title of King of Monsters once more. King Kong and Godzilla are set to appear in an untitled mega monster showdown over at Warner Bros. According to a new report, Kong: Skull Island will now be moving from Universal Pictures over to WB, so that the production house can have a shared monster universe under one nice studio.

With Legendary already owning the rights to Godzilla, the move makes plenty of sense, but it doesn’t make it any less surprising since Universal is losing yet another major property so that their competition can create a shared universe. More on the story below.

Jason Mitchell

Last weekend, Straight Outta Compton took the number one spot at the box office for the second week running, and looking at the schedule of films, it might take it again for a third. The success of that film will definitely help increase the actors’ stock with the film’s stars like Corey Hawkins, O’Shea Jackson Jr., and Jason Mitchell likely to get more high profiled roles.

In fact, Hawkins has already been building himself to be a major star even before he landed the role of Dr. Dre by signing on for Universal and Legendary Pictures’ Kong: Skull Island. As the film prepares to shoot for a fall start date, there are new reports confirming that he will be joined by his fellow Straight Outta Compton co-star Mitchell. More on the story below.
