GODZILLA 2 Already in the Works

GODZILLA 2 Already in the Works

Well, that was quite quick. After being asked about the possibility of a sequel from the very first press screening, and the answer being “we’ll have to see how the first one does,” it appears that Legendary and Warner Bros. are sufficiently happy to begin work on a sequel to Godzilla, which is the worldwide box office #1 this weekend.

The news was reported to Deadline on Sunday – after raking in over $100 million worldwide this weekend, and a staggering $93 million here in the States (the biggest opening of the year so far), Godzilla seems to have proven enough of a hit to warrant venturing into those monster-filled waters again. The sequel plans were in the works already, of course, but this weekend proved its viability.

Director Gareth Edwards has said, were he to do a sequel, he’d employ the same restraint as he did with the first, which did a masterful job of making us wait for more than a fleeting glimpse of the 350-foot dinosaur thing. With many fans wishing for more of the giant monster in the first film, the announcement of a second go-round for the massive monster-fighting monster is surely music to their ears. What we all want to know, however, is whether any of Toho studios’ other famous monsters will appear in a Godzilla sequel. Perhaps Mothra or Rodan? Maybe in a couple of years, a full remake of Ghidorah the Three-Headed Monster will be in the cards, which was The Avengersof kaiju team-ups.

Are you excited to see more of Edwards’ take on Godzilla? Which monster would you like to see him fight/team up with in a sequel?

And if you haven’t already, check out all of our coverage of the Godzilla franchise including reviews of all of his past adventures.

  1. Worst movie I’ve seen in a long time. Am I looking forward to a sequel? No more than my next root canal. Congrats to Gareth Edwards for becoming the successor to Michael Bay, horseman of the apocalypse.

    For those sharp eyed enough, during the scene when Ford and his dad went back to their home to get the data disks, there was an easter egg. When Ford was in his room there was and old aquarium, or something, that had a name written on the lower right corner. “Mosura” A.K.A. Mothra. Foreshadowing perhaps?

    Hopefully the sequel won’t be 2 hours of some doucher nobody cares about getting hit by falling debris and trying to get home to his ugly kid and will actually feature more than 15 minutes of Godzilla.
