Fans of Godzilla will have to wait a tad longer because the sequel to the monster film will now be released at the tail end of May 2019. Initially, Godzilla: King of Monsters, the film’s official title, was pegged for a March 2019 release.
Having the sequel hit cinemas in the middle of summer is pretty ballsy of Warner Bros. Perhaps they know they have a certifiable monster (pun intended) hit on their hands. Godzilla: King of Monsters stars Millie Bobby Brown, Kyle Chandler, and Vera Farmiga and is directed by Michael Dougherty. More importantly the sequel also serves to extend the kaiju universe at Warner Bros, which will culminate in a Godzilla vs Kong movie.
The giant green lizard isn’t the only one getting delayed. The Mark Wahlberg reboot of The Six Billion Dollar Man is now being pushed back an entire year. Faced by production issues and a loss of a director, the Bionic Man reboot seems to be languishing in development hell at the moment. If a new director is found in time, then expect The Six Billion Dollar Man to arrive sometime in mid-2020.
There is some good news though especially for horror movie fans. The studio is planning on bringing Doctor Sleep, which is the sequel to The Shining, to cinemas in early 2020. The film will centre on a middle-aged Danny Torrance who discovers that he has inherited some of his father’s tendencies.
