Kong Skull Island Credits Scene

In just a few weeks, audiences will see what Legendary Pictures does with the classic movie monster known as King Kong. This time we’re not getting the usual story of King Kong being brought back to New York from Skull Island. Instead we’re meeting the king of the jungle for the first time, along with a slew of other monsters (not just dinosaurs) who populate this island of mythic monsters. And if all goes well, this won’t be the last we see of Kong.

Kong: Skull Island takes place in 1973, and while previous stories involving the giant ape have typically resulted in his death, this one won’t. We know that because King Kong has to live in on order to battle Godzilla, who didn’t appear to most of the world’s population until 2014. And it sounds like a Kong Skull Island credits scene may lead into that eventual crossover. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

It was only a matter of time before Godzilla stomped his way into a theme park attraction, but it makes perfect sense that Universal Studios Japan would be the park to make it happen. Godzilla: The Real 4D has was announced a few months ago and will debut next year and the first trailer for the attraction has arrived.

It’s been almost a week since I saw Shin Godzilla at Fantastic Fest 2016 and I haven’t stopped thinking about it. As I explained in my review, Toho’s 29th Godzilla film is fascinating and frustrating in equal measure, deliberately sidestepping what everyone expects from a kaiju movie so it can deliver something truly unique. Those hoping for a traditional monster movie may be disappointed by Shin Godzilla, but anyone looking for a Godzilla movie that that is weird and dense enough to inspire actual conversations will be delighted.

And that brings me to today’s piece of news: I’m proud to debut a new still from the film, offering an up close and personal look at the king of the monsters himself.

What is Shin Godzilla?

Known as Godzilla: Resurgence in Japan, it is the 29th Godzilla movie produced by the legendary production company Toho. It is directed by Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi and no connection whatsoever to Gareth Edwards’ 2014 film or the giant monster universe Warner Bros. is currently building.

But that doesn’t really answer the question, because Shin Godzilla isn’t what many viewers think it will be. So, what is Shin Godzilla? That’s a difficult question to answer because Anno and Higuchi have really made four movies in one package and each one is fascinating and frustrating and genuinely revealing about what this iconic, and wholly Japanese, series actually represents in the year 2016.

Godzilla already made a comeback in the United States with director Gareth Edwards taking a stab at the king of monsters. But now the creators of Godzilla are giving him a revival of their own with Shin Godzilla, formerly known as Godzilla: Resurgence.

And when you see the Shin Godzilla trailer, you’ll see that this is a Japanese Godzilla movie through and through, however, there does appear to be a slight touch of Cloverfield in there as well.
