Next year we’ll see Godzilla return to theaters along with a slew of classic monsters that we’ve yet to see on the big screen in the sequel to the franchise from Legendary Pictures.

Kong Kong Broadway

The last time we saw King Kong careening around New York City was in the virtual world of the OASIS in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One. Before that, it was at the end of Peter Jackson’s 2005 film adaptation (which, by the way, is better than you remember). But now the giant ape is heading from Skull Island to the Big Apple once again – this time in a Broadway musical. Check out a new teaser video for the King Kong Broadway production below.

pacific rim uprising breakdown 38

A few weeks ago, the internet heard news of a potential spin-off between the Pacific Rim movies and the “MonsterVerse,” the current home of King Kong and Godzilla. And it made sense. After all, both of these series are spearheaded by Legendary Pictures. Both of them involve giant monsters. Sure, they would somehow have to be massaged into the same world, but they’d find a way.

But you should never count your kaiju before they hatch – this crossover has already been nipped in the bud by Legendary Pictures producer Cale Boyter.

Kong Skull Island Honest Trailer

Not too long ago, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts went on a lengthy rant about the sin against cinema that is Cinema Sins and their ongoing “Everything Wrong with…” web series that puts together painfully long videos that attempt to be clever while pointing out all the things that are “wrong” with big Hollywood movies. We were happy to feature the entire rant with the director’s permission because Cinema Sins is not the satire it claims to be and we’d all be better off without them.

Since then, fans have been waiting to see what Jordan Vogt-Roberts would do when Screen Junkies tackled Kong: Skull Island. But they might be surprised to hear that rather than taking offense to the fun that Honest Trailers brings to the table when mocking movies, the director actually gets in on the fun, takes over the Kong Skull Island Honest Trailer, and bashes his own movie to a pulp. Find out what the director himself says is wrong with Kong below. Read More »

godzilla vs kong

Godzilla vs. Kong will be the monster movie fight of the century. And director Adam Wingard promises that it will be different from last century’s fight between the two beasts.

The culmination of the Warner Bros. shared MonsterVerse that began with 2014’s Godzilla, as well as more than 50 years of the two classic movie monsters’ pop culture iconography, Godzilla vs. Kong is a modern-day take on a showdown that was already told in 1962’s Japanese kaiju film King Kong vs. Godzilla. But Wingard is eager to set the new Godzilla vs. Kong apart from its campy predecessor.
