GODZILLA vs. KONG | March 13 2020 | Adam Wingard to direct

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I went on a one-man campaign to have Legendary Pictures do Thor 3 😂. It was because this dev house is a phantasy/sci fi fan's dream 😂! They are CGI friendly! 

 

Marvel will unleash the CGI aces on the big Avengers productions, every three years, but they take vacations on the solo films in between...

 

The CGI in the solo films is kept to post production backgrounds and inanimate objects (spaceships). The characters themselves are mostly kept to costumed people in makeup. Any character from the comics that took too much CGI to produce, was either side stepped, or reduced to costumed people. You know, things you'd normally expect from a tv or straight to cable budgeted production. You're wondering, where is this guy or that guy?

 

As a result, we have a Thor trilogy with no sign of the Midgard Serpent, Ulik, Mangog, etc, and were not the epic films they could have been. The last movie, and they bring in the CGI guys to do Surtur...

 

Iron Man and Cap were Feige's darlings. He could never figure out that though he could keep THOSE two franchises grounded to makeup and costumes, a Thor film is another animal entirely! Thor would be a fantasy/sci-fi film, in which CGI beings are a MUST!

 

Anyway, Legendary is the opposite of Marvel 🙂. They will put any monster, beast, mutant and creature on that screen 😂. If they'd have gotten a hold on the Thor franchise from.the start...

December 2020 remains safe (for now). Dune pushed to there?

Well ya take half a decade, and let audiences think about not seeing Godzilla, in the Godzilla film in 2014...the ship has already sailed. KOTM is actually a good movie, so maybe they have awoken the audience from their long, 5-year slumber. Maybe Godzilla vs Kong does decent numbers.

Yeah, if this movie is a success, it's not going to make fantastic numbers. It will just make enough to generate a decent profit.

I don't think this means anything for its future date... the films that are most likely to move into the massive hole this move would create (In the Heights or Scoob) are still filming right now.  They're not going to shuffle dates without knowing that the new film will be ready at the earlier release date.

It s really not that hard, monsters movies were never that big in general.

The only monsters GA care about are the ones that are from earth biology :

 

sharks (Jaws, Statham)

dinos (Jurassic Park, World)

monkeys (Kong)

Maybe (could explain the Thing flopping), but

 

Xenomorph (Alien, Aliens, etc...)

Predator

 

And Godzilla is from earth biology from what I understand, a bit like Pacific Rim pre-historic dinosaur type sea monster than nuclear explosion waked up, and not from outer space.

 

Godzilla had a 93m OW just 5 year's ago, 50% bigger than Kong Skull Island, 100% bigger than the Meg.

Well Alien is completely rooted in earth biology (especially sex organs), it s even the reason it became so iconic & memorable.

Giger's easthetic was called bio-mechanic.

Same for Predator , he looks like a batracian with dreads.

Xenomorph and predator movies have also not hit big time. Drinking returns for both franchises.

Also, I'm actually quite glad that they aren't pulling a Justice League despite KotM's performance. That didn't go over well.

Well same for everything, Godzilla look like a giant lizard arguably more directly than Alien look like an earth thing. I am not sure how much Kong is more a big monkey than Godzilla a big lizard exactly ?
