Assuming it'll be around $200million per film, that'll be most of a billion dollars worth of tantrum.
In marginally less crazy news, I found out about a number of new kaiju films on their way. Firstly there's Godzilla Unleashed
, which is being made by the Tomo, the company behind the originals. They based this decision on the success of the 2014 Legendary Pictures Godzilla film. It's out later this year.
are making their version of the Godzilla franchise into a Marvel-style shared universe with King Kong
next year, another Godzilla in 2018, and then Godzilla vs.
Kong in 2020. Legendary have the rights for Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidora, who will all apparently be in the second film. This makes me excited.
