The cast of the Godzilla sequel is growing by the day. Following the addition of Kyle Chandler and Millie Bobby Brown just a couple of days ago, it has been revealed that Bates Motel star Vera Farmiga has also joined them. The actress will play the partner of Chandler’s character, and the mother to Brown’s character.
The sequel is officially called Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and is directed by Krampus helmer Michael Dougherty. It will continue on from the Gareth Edwards-helmed movie from 2014 and will lead in to a cross-over with King Kong, who appears in next week’s big opener Kong: Skull Island, which got a final trailer just last night.
Godzilla: King Of The Monsters opens on March 22nd 2019.

We already know that Kong: Skull Island looks pretty terrific, but once that hits theaters, next up for Warner Bros. in its MonsterVerse is Godzilla sequel King of the Monsters. So far, it’s shaping up quite nicely and today, the movie has made yet another exciting casting addition in the form of Academy Award-nominee Vera Farmiga. The Conjuring star will join a roster that already boasts Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) and Kyle Chandler (Manchester by the Sea).
Those two aforementioned actors are playing father and daughter, while Farmiga has been added as the wife and mother in the family. Little is known beyond that, though it’s been reported that Chandler’s character is a scientist, likely investigating Godzilla following the events of the first movie. Additional plot details are scarce, but with the cast now coming together, we hope to hear more about it soon.

Everybody knows Stranger Things was great, but it apparently it was so great that star Millie Bobby Brown not only gets to be in the Godzilla sequel, but she also gets to have pretty cool parents in the Godzilla sequel. We previously reported that Kyle Chandler will be playing her father, and now Variety says that Vera Farmiga will be playing her mother. We don’t know much about their roles beyond that, but Farmiga has battled supernatural forces in the Conjuring movies, so she may have some relevant experience to bring to Godzilla: King Of The Monsters.
The sequel is being directed by Krampus’ Michael Dougherty, and the Variety story says that the only character from the first movie who is expected to return is Ken Watanabe’s Dr. Ishiro Serizawa. That plan could change, though, since the movie won’t come out until 2019.

Little by little, the cast of 2019’s Godzilla: King of Monsters, the sequel to 2014’s Godzilla, is starting to come together. The past few weeks have seen Friday Night Lights actor Kyle Chandler and Stranger Things breakout actress Millie Bobby Brown both signing on to the monster film as a father-daughter duo, but now their family unit has found a new member.
Farmiga is currently finishing up her time as Norma Bates on the final season of Bates Motel, for which she has earned widespread acclaim from viewers over the years and an Emmy nomination in 2013. She’ll soon be seen in Shana Feste’s Boundaries, Jaume Collet-Serra’s The Commuter and Rupert Wyatt’s Captive State.

It has been more than a decade since Peter Jackson unleashed his version of King Kong on moviegoers and while it is not generally considered to be a bad movie, it is a bit slow and definitely had some issues. Legendary Pictures is getting ready to reintroduce the legendary ape next month and this time around, it looks to be a pure, action-packed monster adventure. With the release of Kong: Skull Island less than a month away, a new trailer is set to be released tomorrow and we already have a little glimpse at what's to come.
The official Twitter account for Kong: Skull Island released a brief but loaded-with-monster-action tease for the upcoming trailer. It was also announced that a brand new and likely final trailer would be arriving online tomorrow. If this brief tease is any indication, we are in for a whole lot of King King duking it out with other beasts. »

Godzilla, officially The King of the Monsters, returns to his Japanese roots following the 2014 Gareth Edwards directed Us film in Shin Godzilla. Set in present-day Japan, the film sees an unexplained seismic event occur off the coast of Shinagawa, causing ripple effects all the way to the capital. Ministers scramble to figure out what’s going on but only cabinet secretary Rando Yaguchi knows what the audience already does. That Godzilla has majestically returned and has his fire-breathing, stomping sights on Tokyo once more…

Kong: Skull Island will stomp into movie theaters on March 10, so it makes sense that we're hearing more rumblings about Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the next giant monster movie. First came word that young Millie Bobby Brown, who broke out big in the Netflix series Stranger Things, will star. Now Kyle Chandler has joined the cast, per Variety. Chandler, who costarred in Peter Jackson's King Kong back in 2005 (above), will portray Brown's father. The movie is a sequel to the 2014 reboot of Godzilla, directed by Gareth Edwards. Reportedly, Ken Watanabe is the only member of that cast who will reprise his role. Michael Dougherty (Krampus) will direct; it's due in theaters on March 22, 2019.

Everyone’s favorite TV father figure has taken on another such role in the sequel to 2014’s Godzilla, in which he’ll be parenting a Stranger Things tween. According to Variety, Kyle Chandler will play dad to Millie Bobby Brown’s character. So far these two constitute the only announced cast for what is being called Godzilla: King Of Monsters, although Ken Watanabe is reportedly expected to reprise his role from the first film. Also, Godzilla and—if the title is to be believed—some other big scary creatures are probably going to show up. And who better to take on that horde than Coach Taylor and Eleven?
The movie is part of an expanded franchise from Legendary which will eventually combine the worlds of noted enormous threats Godzilla and King Kong. It is set to be directed by Michael Dougherty, the Krampus alum who stepped in for Gareth ...

The Hollywood Reporter says that Stranger Things star Millie-Bobby Brown has also joined the cast. They state that Chandler will play a scientist and father of Brown’s character, which is said to be the hero of the movie.
As well as being a sequel to the Edwards film, which wasn’t that well-received by critics, but did do decent coin at the box-office ($520 million plus worldwide), the movie will form part of the universe that Warner Bros. and Legendary are building with Kong: Skull Island, »

Less than a month after Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown joined the cast of Warner Bros. and Legendary's sequel Godzilla: King of Monsters, another Netflix star has come aboard. Kyle Chandler, who stars in the streaming service's hit drama series Bloodline, has signed on to play the father of Millie Bobby Brown's character. No details have been given for this father-daughter duo quite yet, but we could learn more soon since production will begin in the next few months.
Variety broke the news of this casting, along with the news that several of the original Godzilla stars such as Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson will not be back for this sequel, although Ken Watanabe is expected to reprise his role as scientist Ishiro Serizawa. His inclusion does make sense, since he is part of the Monarch organization, which is also featured in the upcoming Kong: Skull Island »

Two mysterious billionaires, one of the toy variety, the other with a penchant for sex games, triumphed at the box office over a trio of new film releases during a muted Presidents Day Weekend.
Once again, “The Lego Batman Movie” loomed large at the multiplexes, picking up $42.5 million to take first place on the charts for the second consecutive weekend. The Warner Bros. release has now earned $107.1 million stateside. It focuses on a one-percenter who dons a bat costume in order to rescue Gotham City from the Joker.
Universal’s “Fifty Shades Darker,” a look at the bedroom habits of a titan of industry, came in second, picking up $24 million at 3,714 sites. The erotic drama has helped bring Bdsm into the mainstream, while earning roughly $92 million. That’s a solid result, although it trails its predecessor, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” which had made $131 million at a similar point in its run. »

With just a few weeks left until the March 10 release of Kong: Skull Island, Warner Bros. has unleashed an action-packed new clip, which shows King Kong springing into action against one of the vicious Skull Crawlers. If that wasn't enough, we also have an IMAX featurette, where we hear from stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and Jason Mitchell. The video also features Samuel L. Jackson, who compares his character Preston Packard to Ahab from Moby Dick, with King Kong serving as his "white whale." Brie Larson adds how happy she is that they have the "biggest King Kong of them all," which has been teased by director Jordan Vogt-Roberts in the past.
Warner Bros. debuted this clip earlier today, with Fandango premiering the IMAX featurette, which includes plenty of new footage of some of the other creatures on Skull Island. While Kong is certainly king on this island, there are »
King Kong is not to be trifled with. As Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ blockbuster reboot inches closer and closer to its March 10th release, Legendary has spent the past few weeks drumming up excitement with a steady stream of teasers, eye-popping promos and nail-biting clips featuring some nervy exchanges between the human cast of Kong: Skull Island.
But if Samuel L. Jackson’s Lieutenant Colonel Packard and John Goodman’s mysterious Monarch operative Bill Randa took center stage earlier this week, Legendary has now summoned Kong himself to lock horns with one of the island’s many Skull Crawlers. The latter species will no doubt be categorized as another Muto (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Object) when Kong: Skull Island lights up the silver screen, but the real question is whether those Skull Crawlers have any relation to Godzilla, the real king of monsters.
Skull Island is a prequel, remember – just don’t refer »
