We knew it was coming. Now we know when. The Wrap reports that Godzilla 2, the sequel to one of the very best Godzilla movies yet (a lot of these movies are for fans only to begin with), and also a sequel that will supposedly feature Mothra, Ghidorah, and (boring-ass) Rodan, will come out June 8, 2018.
This puts the film one week ahead of a Pixar movie, but the date is otherwise free. I’m sure it will stay that way for the next four years. Also: that’s almost half a decade from now. I’m excited about the film, but I prefer to not even have it on my radar this early. This release date stuff is getting out of hand.
But that’s not the world we live in. Instead I have to walk around making extra sure I don’t die for the next four years. The responsibility is great, but I’m sure Godzilla 2 will be great as well (in relation to other Godzilla movies and maybe also the Underworld series).
