Warner Bros. has announced it is moving Gareth Edwards‘ “Godzilla 2” from June 8, 2018 to March 22, 2019. The studio has also dated its creature feature “Godzilla vs. Kong” for May 29, 2020.
Additionally, the studio will release an untitled event film on Dec. 25, 2018, while an untitled DC movie is moving from June 19, 2020 to July 24, 2020.
WB’s decision moves “Godzilla 2” off the same date as Paramount’s “Transformers 6,” though it will now square off against Paramount’s original animated movie “Amusement Park,” which is expected to cater to a younger audience.
The monster mash-up “Godzilla vs. Kong” currently has its release date all to itself, as the only other movie currently slated to open that month is an untitled Marvel movie in early May.
Meanwhile, WB’s event film will go head-to-head with an untitled, live-action Disney movie that opens the same day, while Sony’s animated “Spider-Man” movie will open four days earlier on Dec. 21.
Finally, the untitled DC movie, which is believed to be “Green Lantern Corps,” will now arrive two weeks after new films from Marvel and Illumination.
