10/14/15 - King Kong will share the
stage with Godzilla.
Legendary and Warner Bros. Pictures have come
together to create an epic, new shared cinematic franchise.
All-powerful monsters become towering heroes for a new
generation, revealing a mythology that brings together
Godzilla and King Kong in an ecosystem of other giant
super-species, both classic and new.
Legendary’s CEO, Thomas Tull, and Kevin Tsujihara,
Chairman and CEO for Warner Bros. announced 2017 release of
KONG: SKULL ISLAND; GODZILLA 2 in 2018; and then GODZILLA
VS. KONG arriving in theaters in 2020.
Shortly following Legendary’s pact with NBC
Universal, Legendary acquired rights to additional classic
characters from Toho’s Godzilla universe, including Rodan,
Mothra, and King Ghidorah. This paved the way for developing
a franchise centered around Monarch and anchored by
Godzilla, King Kong, and other famous creatures.
