‘Godzilla,’ ‘Pacific Rim’ Sequels New Titles Revealed
The Godzilla reboot will be helmed by Krampus director Michael Dougherty and is currently on track to open March 22, 2019, which will follow next year’s Kong: Skull Island, with a Godzilla vs. Kong movie also planned for 2020.
The Pacific Rim follow-up, which was previously titled Pacific Rim: Maelstrom, is slated to open February 23, 2018. “Daredevil” showrunner Steven S. DeKnight heads the film, which is shooting in Australia and China.
I’ve gotta say, Pacific Rim: Maelstrom sounded much better than Pacific Rim: Uprising. The latter is so generic, lame and overused. As for the second one, I’m cool with Godzilla’s King of the Monsters. Clearly, it’s a nod to the 1956 American Godzilla, King of the Monsters! recut of the original Japanese Gojira film.
