Cinematic universes are all the rage right now, even if the critical response hasn’t been a bit of a mixed bag. A while back, Legendary Pictures announced their plans for a MonsterVerse which would see the 2014 “Godzilla” reboot lead off four interconnected films that also includes this year’s “Kong: Skull Island,” the recently wrapped “Godzilla” sequel in 2019, and finally a “Godzilla vs. Kong” film in 2020.

In a not unexpected twist, it looks like the MonsterVerse could one day tie into the “Pacific Rim” series should director Steven S. DeKnight gets his wish. DeKnight, who helms next year’s kaiju vs. robots sequel “Pacific Rim: Uprising,” spoke with Collider and says there have been talks:

“I won’t say there’s an Easter Egg but there’s been a lot of discussion about that possibility [of crossing over]. Look I think it would be fantastic to have the Pacific Rim universe join Legendary’s Monster Universe, it seems like a natural step. And part of the big overall plan after the third movie we’ve talked about is that could happen, it’s always a possibility. It’s by far not a certainty; it’s merely theoretical at this point, but as a fan myself I would love to see that happen.”

Could that be a fifth film in this saga? Possibly. DeKnight certainly wants to make more films set in the “Pacific Rim” universe and says of the upcoming sequel:

“Oh we definitely leave it open to another installment. The tricky thing with something like this is you want to not end on a cliffhanger. It has a definitive ending but very much open to the next chapter.”

“Pacific Rim Uprising” opens in cinemas on March 23rd 2018.

SHIN GODZILLA was pretty good. There's also an animated film coming out and a sequel to the American remake!

Toho planning their own shared universe for future Godzilla films!

It has been revealed that Toho Company, Ltd. will be focusing on creating their own shared universe for their kaiju-related properties.

Tojo’s Keiji Ota talked about his plans after Toho’s deal with Warner Bros. and Legendary comes to a close after 2021:

“After 2021, we’re thinking of a potential strategy that [releases] Godzilla movies uninterrupted at a rate of every 2 years, although there is a preference for a yearly pace as well. The future of the series and its forwarding developments are very conscious of the method of “shared universe”. Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah, etc. could all share a single world view much like a Marvel movie where Iron Man and the Hulk can crossover with each other.”

In the same interview, Ota also revealed that they would not be moving forward with Shin Godzilla 2, stating that he would rather focus on creating a world of Godzilla that creators can use for a long time.

Funimation Films released the Japanese live-action film Shin Godzilla (or Godzilla Resurgence as it’s also known) in all of the Americas (North America, Central America, South America and the Caribbean). The film grossed nearly $50 million in Japan alone.

Shin Godzilla (“Shin Gojira”) is a Japanese tokusatsu kaiju film – a live-action science fiction monster movie featuring special effects. It is the 29th Godzilla film produced by Toho. The film is co-directed by Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi. Both directors performed double duties as writer and visual effects director respectively. Higuchi most recently directed the live-action film adaption of Attack on Titan (“Shingeki no Kyojin”), which was released in 2015. Shin Godzilla stars Hiroki Hasegawa and Satomi Ishihara – both alums of the Attack on Titan movie – and Yutaka Takenouchi.

Meanwhile, Legendary is slated to release Godzilla 2 — the sequel to Gareth Edwards’ 2014 Hollywood iteration — in March 2019. Mike Dougherty (Trick R’ Treat, Krampus) took over for Gareth Edwards after his departure from the project. Filming wrapped last year.

Godzilla City on the Edge of Battle

Humanity's desperate battle to reclaim the Earth from Godzilla continues. The key to defeating the King of the Monsters may be Mechagodzilla, a robotic weapon thought to have been lost nearly 20,000 years ago.

This second part in a trilogy of animated movies, features some gorgeous animation and cool action sequences but lack of a proper ending or cliffhanger.

Directors: Hiroyuki Seshita & Kôbun Shizuno
Running time: 101 minutes
Released: 2018
