Release of Mike Dougherty's Godzilla sequel pushed back 2 months

Godzilla Gareth Edwards

The wait for a follow-up to Gareth Edwards' 2014 GODZILLA just got a little longer, as Warner Bros. has pushed the release of the sequel back two months.

It's still not clear what we should be calling this movie, as it's referred to as GODZILLA 2, GODZILLA: KING OF MONSTERS, or GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS depending on where you look, but we do know that it had been scheduled for release on March 22, 2019 and has now been moved to May 31, 2019.

Directed by TRICK 'R TREAT's Mike Dougherty from a screenplay he wrote with his KRAMPUS co-writer Zach Shields, the film follows

the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.

When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.

It stars Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Zhang Ziyi, Aisha Hinds, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Randy Havens, Jonathan Howard, Anthony Ramos, Bradley Whitford, and Elizabeth Ludlow, with Jason Liles, Richard Dorton, and Alex Maxson providing the motion capture performances for the three heads of King Ghidorah.

Although I was disappointed by the 2014 GODZILLA, I'm hyped to see its sequel. The extra two months of waiting doesn't bother me much, it's just good to know I'll get to see Godzilla fight Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah sometime next year.
