Here’s Why Lance Reddick is Barely in ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’

Godzilla vs. Kong clocks in at a blissfully brief 113 minutes – but it’s pretty clear the movie could’ve been longer. For one thing, previously announced cast members like Zhang Ziyi and Jessica Henwick don’t even appear in the film. And then there’s Lance Reddick, a familiar face who only shows up briefly and delivers one quick line, and is then never spoken of again. Now, director Adam Wingard is shedding some light on some Godzilla vs. Kong deleted scenes that explain what happened here. ...

‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Almost Had a Post-Credits Scene – Here’s What Happened to It

Once upon a time, post-credits scenes were a novelty. And then Marvel turned them into a mainstay, and soon, producers started to think that every major blockbuster should have a post-credits scene. Legendary’s MonsterVerse series has been trying to follow in Marvel’s footsteps with their own shared cinematic universe, and sure enough, most of the films have had post-credits scenes. But there isn’t one for Godzilla vs. Kong. And even though we, as a society of moviegoers, should be okay with th...

Toho Had a Rule For ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Director, But He Convinced Them to Break It

When director Adam Wingard was given the keys to Godzilla vs. Kong, he wasn’t just dealing with the folks at Legendary Pictures – he also had to interact with the team at Toho Studios, which owns the rights to the Godzilla character. And according to the director, Toho had a very specific restriction in place for what Godzilla could and could not do. But Wingard, that crafty devil, managed to convince them to break their own rule. Speaking with CinemaBlend‘s Reelblend podcast, Wingard reveale...

While beating each other to a pulp, Godzilla and King Kong – two titans who find themselves at odds with each other in the new Legendary/Warner Bros. MonsterVerse movie Godzilla vs. Kong – roar directly in each other’s faces. It’s a moment that makes director Adam Wingard (You’re Next, The Guest, Blair Witch) “ teary-eyed,” though he acknowledges it’s an odd moment in the film to get emotional. Still, “every time I watch it, I’m like, ‘This is what it’s all about,'” he told us in a recent inter...

‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Review: Big, Dumb Monster Mayhem That Delivers

What do we want from the MonsterVerse, Warner Bros. and Legendary’s attempt to Marvel-ize the world of Godzilla, King Kong, and several other big beasties? The answer seems to be: big, loud, entertaining mayhem, and here comes Godzilla vs. Kong to hopefully deliver on that. Time and time again, when one of these movies comes out, they’re pilloried for their lackluster human characters. These criticisms are inevitably met with a defensive “Who cares?!

‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Director Adam Wingard Was Once Hand-Picked By Peter Jackson to Make a Sequel to 2005’s ‘King Kong’

After his Oscar-winning success with the Lord of the Rings trilogy, director Peter Jackson rolled right into one of his long-time passion projects: directing a remake of King Kong. That 2005 film made more than $562 million worldwide, which ultimately wasn’t quite enough to justify a sequel. But before the notion of a sequel was scrapped, one was actually in development, and Jackson had his eye on a director for the project: Adam Wingard, who eventually went on to direct the Eighth Wonder of th...

‘Face/Off’ Sequel Director Adam Wingard Sure Makes it Sound Like John Travolta and Nicolas Cage Might Be Back For His Movie

When word broke that Adam Wingard was directing a Face/Off reboot, I’ll admit I was immediately skeptical. More than that – I was annoyed. Face/Off is perfect as-is – we don’t need a remake. Then things got weirder, as Wingard took to social media to clarify he wasn’t making a reboot or a remake – he was making a sequel. This raised all sorts of new questions, specifically: how? How exactly do you make a sequel to Face/Off? And do you bring back original stars John Travolta and Nicolas Cage? Ac...
