GODZILLA 2 Release Date Set for June 8, 2018

     August 14, 2014


Shortly after Gareth EdwardsGodzilla scored $93.2 million during its opening weekend run, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. revealed that a sequel was in development.  Two months later they made Godzilla 2 official at San Diego Comic-Con and now we’ve got a release date to go along with it – June 8, 2018.

At the moment, Godzilla 2 has that June 8, 2018 slot all to itself, but summer 2018 is a long way away, so it’ll probably get some company as we get closer.  Hit the jump for more on the Godzilla 2 release date.  The first film is actually still playing in a handful of theaters and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Sally Hawkins, Ken Watanabe, Juliette Binoche and David Strathairn.

No one wants to wait four years for a sequel, but Edwards needs the time.  It was announced in San Diego that Edwards will return to direct the next film, so with his Star Wars stand-alone movie due to hit theaters on December 16, 2016, there was probably just no choice, but to go with a much later date.  Four years may seem like a lot of time now, but with two massive properties like these, Edwards is going to have his hands quite full for a while now.

As Legendary CEO Thomas Tull revealed at the Warner Bros. Hall H panel, Godzilla will encounter the mutated pterosaur Rodan, the moth-like Mothra and the three-headed Ghidorah along the way.

    So June 8th will be one of the best days ever. Hope he hurries up with this Star Wars nonsense.

    Legendary should take the time to get the rights to distrube the original Godzilla films. That IMOP is why some many people bitched; they have no familiarity with these films.

    If they could re-release at least Mothra and Rodan it would simply be amazing and would actually build a fanbase.

    No one in the US owns the right to the Toho films, which is one of the reasons these films are underappreciated here. You can’t get anything like a complete box set, hence the disjointed opions towards the series.

    Imagine if every Bond films rights were held by diffrent companies and then you can visualize the problem and it doesn’t have to be this way, in Australia they do in fact have complete box sets with specialfeatures and made by Toho itself.

      People definitely didn’t understand the legacy of Godzilla or what makes a good film. They were simply comparing a differently styled film to what they’re used to and whined the entire time.

      I own every Toho monster and sci-fi film that has been put out on DVD, and I still think Godzilla 2014 is the worst movie I’ve seen in years.

      Also, if viewing films from 50-60 years ago is required in order to appreciate a brand new film, then that film has failed. It should stand on its own.

        If you think that was the worst movie ever made… then you must not see many movies, or you have unresonable expectations.

        Call me stupid, but I think watching Godzilla 1954 is essential for someone appreciating the Heisei films and someone who has never seen any of these would not get Destroy All Monsters.

        I own every one of these to and I recognize that these films need advocates in this country.

        1. I did not say “worst movie ever”
        2. Heisei was a continuation of the original Godzilla movie. G2014 is a stand along film from a different country. It should not require watching a bunch of old movies to enjoy.
        3. Heisei came after Destroy All Monsters. I’m not sure what you’re saying.
