By MrBlackjack - 5/18/2014
After a "monstrous" opening (the largest of 2014 thus far), Deadline is reporting Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. are developing a sequel to the blockbuster that is Godzilla.

After opening to $103M internationally — the biggest opening of 2014 so far — and grossing $93M domestic stateside this weekend, it should come as no surprise that Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros.‘ are already developing a sequel to the monster hit. It was confirmed to Deadline this morning that a Godzilla sequel is underway. The beast is currently stomping across international markets to take No. 1 spots in most territories.


Not much is known at the moment (obviously), but it should be a safe bet Gareth Edwards will return to direct. What are your thoughts on a sequel? Sound off below!

Gareth Edwards directs “Godzilla,” which stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson (“Kick-Ass”), Oscar® nominee Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai,” “Inception”), Elizabeth Olsen (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”), Oscar® winner Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient,” “Cosmopolis”), and Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”), with Oscar® nominee David Strathairn (“Good Night, and Good Luck.,” “The Bourne Legacy”) and Bryan Cranston (“Argo,” TV’s “Breaking Bad”).

@IcemanX

If you wanted a mindless blockbuster wait till Transformer, you stupid troll.

Godzilla vs. Gigan. Save King Ghidorah for the third movie!

Just an incredible experience it was, it´s been a long time since I´ve caught myself physically cheering for a character.
AxeEffect - 5/18/2014, 11:50 AM
I just want a bit more godzilla this time, since we got his introduction out the way, I think it's safe to say we'll get summore godzilla in the sequel

@TheBeatles

That song was a blatant rip-off of Brave by Sarah Bareilis.
BatmanRobinNightwing - 5/18/2014, 11:55 AM
@joemomma supposidly the japanese audiences got to see a after credit scene where mothra comes. So thats could be the next monster

Just saw this on Deadline, great stuff!

Really really enjoyed the film , glad it's getting a sequel. Just hope they improve in the areas that need improving (very bland human cast besides Cranston, very little Godzilla).

Another franchise to look forward to :D
DrunkenNukem - 5/18/2014, 11:57 AM
Amazing...the sounds and special effects are incredible...

I love it
charlie2094 - 5/18/2014, 11:58 AM

I don't know much about Godzilla or any other Kaiju/monsters, but I do remember seeing an easter egg for "Mothra", so that could be where the sequel goes, whatever that is :P
DEVLIN712 - 5/18/2014, 11:58 AM
Wasn't incredibly impressed by Godzilla but it wasn't the worst film I've seen this year, I'll definitely give the sequel a try
ndwwrestler2 - 5/18/2014, 11:59 AM
It could've been more in my opinion, but it was a really good movie, and definitely worthy of a sequel.

Godzilla 2: The Rise Of Godzooky
Holmes - 5/18/2014, 12:02 PM
YESSSSS movie of the year bitches!!!!
SauronsBANE - 5/18/2014, 12:04 PM
Solid movie, I really really enjoyed it. But I actually don't want a sequel to this at all. Are the sequels just going to be more kaiju coming out of nowhere and attacking cities, forcing Godzilla to save our butts again and again? I feel like this movie is better served as a standalone movie. No need for any more sequels to water it down.

But realistically I the studio would never just sit on a money-making franchise like this and not make sequels. Unfortunate, but inevitable.
batz11 - 5/18/2014, 12:04 PM
Just left the theater and I'm hugely disappointed, what a pile of crap...
WinterAvenger - 5/18/2014, 12:06 PM
YESSSSSS YESSS PLEASE YESSS this film was amazing in each in every way just like in the originals perfect :D
MrCBM56 - 5/18/2014, 12:06 PM
Such a disappointing movie.

What Batz11 & SauronBANE1 said.
Klone - 5/18/2014, 12:08 PM
Did the film even explain why Godzilla saved humanity? And what the hell are the MUTOs?
JakeMurdock89 - 5/18/2014, 12:08 PM
BRING IT!
TheMexicanSuperman - 5/18/2014, 12:10 PM
@SauronsBANE1, well that is what Godzilla is about.
@Iceman, it wasn't boring. Your simple mind needs explosions every five minutes to keep your short intention entertained?
Klone - 5/18/2014, 12:10 PM
BLACKJACK!!!!!

LMB10 - 5/18/2014, 12:10 PM
Godzilla Harder
MrBlackjack - 5/18/2014, 12:11 PM
@Axe, Joe
TheMexicanSuperman - 5/18/2014, 12:11 PM
I thought the movie was awesome. Some parts reminded me of the first Jurassic Park film.
TheManFromMars - 5/18/2014, 12:11 PM
Is he gonna fight Bullshito like @driver said on that other article?
Klone - 5/18/2014, 12:11 PM
I [frick]ing hate those condescending pricks who sneeringly say with such smugness that another person is a lower life form who must require lowly levels of entertainment for simply finding something boring they didn't.

"bbaaraaahh cause urs stewpid u need explosions every 2 secs 2 keep u entetortened brwwyhhahah"
Klone - 5/18/2014, 12:12 PM
I will kill you BlackJack.
TheMexicanSuperman - 5/18/2014, 12:12 PM
@MetahumanAbominationKlone, watch it and find out.
@Batz, how so?
Ramiel - 5/18/2014, 12:13 PM
Didn't Legendary and WB end their relationship?
JDUKE25 - 5/18/2014, 12:13 PM
Watched it yesterday. It was pretty good.

Slow at times, but the final fight and the way it ended was awesome. It got claps in the theater.

3.8/5
quasi95 - 5/18/2014, 12:14 PM
It wasn't a pile of shit but it wasn't magnificent. I wish the story stuck more with cranston than his shitty son. Shitty "MUTOS". Should have been Rodan.
TheMexicanSuperman - 5/18/2014, 12:15 PM
@MetahumanAbominationKlone, you must get your feelings hurt easily. Stop being so sensitive.
Klone - 5/18/2014, 12:15 PM
I'd ask you to fortify your "house" BlackJack, but there isn't really much point.

Klone - 5/18/2014, 12:16 PM
@Mexican

No, it only annoys me when people assume that.
quasi95 - 5/18/2014, 12:16 PM
I give it a 6.5 or 7/10

Was enjoyable but had tons more potential. That ending fight was great.
