The sequel to director Gareth Edwards’ 2014 Godzilla reboot has started shooting, and the full cast and some story details have been confirmed. The movie was previously said to be titled Godzilla: King of the Monsters, but that title isn’t mentioned in the press release, so we’re back to just Godzilla 2 for the time being.
The movie is part of what Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures’ are calling their “MonsterVerse” shared universe. It began with the ’14 Godzilla, and was continued with this year’s Kong: Skull Island. Eventually it will lead to a clash of titans in Godzilla vs. Kong, which is set to be helmed by Blair Witch and The Guest director Adam Wingard.

Legendary Pictures has found a writer to take on the new movie adaptation of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi classic Dune. According to reports, the studio has hired screenwriter Eric Roth for the job.
This latest cinematic take on Dune is set to be directed by Denis Villeneuve, who will be moving on to his third consecutive science fiction project after recent Best Picture nominee Arrival and the upcoming Blade Runner 2049, a sequel to Ridley Scott’s own sci-fi classic Blade Runner.
Kong: Skull Island Director: Jordan Vogt-Roberts Screenwriter: Dan Gilroy, Max Borenstein, Derek Connolly Cast: Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell, John Ortiz, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Shea Whigham, Thomas Mann, Terry Notary, John C. Reilly Distributor: Warner Bros. Rated PG | 118 Minutes Release Date: March 10, 2017
“Hold onto your butts,” United States Army Lieutenant Colonel Preston Packard (Samuel L. Jackson) proclaims as he and his squad act as a military escort for an expedition team that charts a newly discovered island. You may have heard that line before in Jurassic Park, but the anxiousness that swells over before the outcome is the same nonetheless. In fact, that’s the kind of feeling you get when watching Kong: Skull Island. The unconventional story of the King of the Monsters doesn’t rehash the story that has been retold countless times; instead, it focuses solely on the island itself and the monsters that inhabit it. Check out the full review below.
After directing titles like the mystery thriller Enemy and the crime dramas Prisoners and Sicario, lately it’s been all about the science fiction for Denis Villeneuve.
First it was Arrival, the alien contact movie which was recently nominated for eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director for Villeneuve. Most recently he’s been busy making Blade Runner 2049, the long-awaited sequel to Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. Then, back in December, it was revealed that Villeneuve was in line to possibly take on a new adaptation of the sci-fi classic Dune.
Now it appears a new Dune movie directed by Villeneuve is a done deal.
