That's a bold subtitle.

Knowing Hollywood they will chicken out and team them up to fight some common enemy.

Looking good. Kong should be at least 90 meters (three times bigger than in Skull Island) to fight with this Godzilla.

It’s guaranteed at this point. The whole “human conspiracy” thing and the credit clippings from KOTM along with recent rumors that align with them. All pointing to that.

Going to underperform in that case.

Over definitely. KOTM underperforming is really fucking baffling but if there's one film in the Monsterverse that can top 600M, it's this one. Audiences, not really relying on you now, hoping you don't fuck this one up.

I understand the Dec logic, 2020 will be the final free Dec before the Avatar/Stars Wars A Christmas Story starts for the next 7 years.  With that said, Kong did well in a March spot 2 years ago.   Better than Godzilla is doing in the Summer frame this year and it had better legs than Godzilla 2014.   I think Kong could be the boost this needs.  I also believe that's their thinking is they can repeat the success in March.   So I would keep the date for now.

I think King Kong in general is more of an American thing than Godzilla is, hence why people know who Kong is.

 

Godzilla generally is more for the Japanese audience.

Well they've gotten a crack at this 3 times now.  It makes money here but none of them really broke out.  I remember the 98 version and how critically panned it was back then but we all loved the Puffy remix, lol.   Adjusted that made 261 which is 40 Million more than the 2014 version.  So there is a fanbase there but yes Kong is much more known.  To put it in context, Peter Jackson's "Kong" did better than 2014 Godzilla.  And I said back then that "Skull Island" actually didn't do bad at all for that being a different style than Peter's.   Yes Godzilla is huge in Japan because they popularized it.  This film coming up will be the 4th American Godzilla Production coming up.   Also in fairness to King of Monsters, Competition was fierce this weekend and it still found enough to get a #1 audience out there though it lost 2 days to Aladdin.

If this is moving we’ll probably find out pretty quick since most likely the plan is to reveal the trailer next month at comic con.

I think we’re going to get a winner.... my gut feeling is Kong WILL win(not kill G).. but there IS a bigger bad that Kong can’t handle. Godzilla rises and self sacrifices himself(thermal nuclear explosion?) killing himself and the big bad.

 

Kong wins the battle... Godzilla has his last heroic moment though killing himself.

 

How would you guys feel about something like that?

Oh please no. I know there will be a team up (as I said before, it’s inevitable), but hopefully Godzilla wins, villain (I guess MechaG in this case) nearly kills Godzilla but then Kong comes to the rescue. 

 

Why would they kill off Godzilla? Unless a baby is suddenly introduced out of nowhere just for plot convenience and either way, I prefer if this Godzilla was the last of his kind.
