GODZILLA vs. KONG | May 21 2021 | Adam Wingard to direct

Recommended Posts

I love anything Godzilla, but literally the only reason Godzilla 2014 had a marginally better domestic multiplier than BvS is the fact that it didn't open nearly as big.

I think Wondy 2 takes this date when the dust settles down. Pre thanksgiving week has been great for blockbusters.

If we have a second Corona wave in the fall,all bets are off, of course.

Hollywood just needs to take the existing/previous film release schedule and bump everything back a year. Which they'll have to do with the planned 2021 films that never made it to production or had their production stopped because of the virus anyway. Then the scheduled 2022 and beyond films that occupy the slots the 2021 films have to be dropped in to get pushed back a year, and so on.

Speak only positivity.  We need everything reopened my friend. Kong better not win over Godzilla tho. Long live the king of all monsters!

That’s one of the reasons why I briefly left the site after KOTM. The box office failure seemed like some sort of celebration and certain members were calling out Godzilla Fans for “running away” when KOTM didn’t make back money. And since we’re such a small fanbase, it’s no help.

 

This forum has some toxicity that seems unresolved.

Jgar how are you man. Us Big G fans are here with you. I think this movie will do well. Lots of positive talk on the web.  Just like Avatar 2. Haters won't stop this one either but studios need to get the right release date. I think Godzilla 2 suffered from a overcrowded bo . So maybe we need to be the first big release in 2021 or Dec 2020 . Theaters might be back this year.

Avatar was the highest grossing film of all time when it opened though. Godzilla 2... was not.

This brings a big smile to my face. 

Yes it’s another delay, but it shows that they (WB and Legendary) care and want this movie to succeed, and confident enough to put it in the summer movie season once more. I’m betting in it releasing on that same day May 21st, or on May 28th which is Memorial Day weekend.

Its only competition would be Shang-Chi and Cruella, the latter being nowhere near as big as the live action remakes of the Disney Renaissance trio or even as big as Cinderella and Dumbo.

Much like The Batman, WB is clearly going to push back The Matrix 4 (currently slated for May 21, 2021) because it doesn’t seem to resume production anytime soon and they only had like 3-4 weeks of filming. You can also bet that Universal will be pushing back Jurassic World: Dominion for the very same reason, so that will most likely not be any competition for this film.

Hey dude it’s been awhile. Long time no see. I remember you from the Godzilla 2014 days (you had an Avatar profile pic of Jake and Neytiri).

 

 I agree with your point too, KOTM should’ve come out on March 22nd like it was originally supposed to.

The great wheel of shuffling keeps on rolling. I give this a decent chance of being he final date — say, 50%ish.

WW84 to December 18th while Dune can have a limited Christmas release followed by a wide expansion on MKL weekend. That way, it can compete for awards still.

Why is WB going to send any movie to that terrible November spot?

Yup.

 

Releasing a blockbuster, any blockbuster, between Black Widow (first new MCU movie in over a year) and No Time to Die (first new Bond film in 5 years) is basically just the equivalent of dumping it into a hospice.

Feels like a waste of a prime spot, tbh. We'll see how it does, but I'd be surprised with $150m domestic
