The vicious battle between Godzilla and King Kong has been given a premiere date: May 29, 2020. However, Warner Bros. has moved the release of its Godzilla sequel to March 22, 2019—nine months later than its previous release timeline.
Little is known regarding Godzilla vs. King Kong at this point. Until now, no further information has been revealed since its announcement last October. “Audiences really responded to Godzilla,” shared Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara. “Today, I’m excited to reveal that film was only the beginning of an epic new entertainment universe.”
He added, “Working with our partners at Legendary, we enjoyed tremendous creative and commercial success with Godzilla. It’s great to be able to revisit these characters and help create a franchise with so many creative possibilities for filmmakers. Fans love these big, globally iconic films and it doesn’t get any bigger than this.”
According to Deadline, the postponement of Godzilla 2 is so it wouldn’t have to compete with the sixth Transformers film. Their report also included information that Warner Bros. has planned an “event film” for Christmas 2018.
