Does the Loch Ness Monster actually exist alongside Godzilla? Laugh all you want, but this might actually be a thing. Godzilla: King of the Monsters is set to arrive in theaters next year and will herald the arrival of other beloved Toho monsters such as Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah. But some new evidence from an official website associated with the movie suggests that the famed Scottish water-dwelling beast may exist alongside these creatures in what has been dubbed the MonsterVerse. For those who have seen movies like 2014's Godzilla and last year's Kong: Skull Island, an organization known as Monarch helps to connect these movies together within the same, shared universe. The organization's website, which is mostly just a viral marketing tool used by Warner Bros. for MonsterVerse purposes, has a feature that allows fans to track Godzilla's whereabouts, in addition to other MUTOs (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organisms). One such location of an undisclosed MUTO is listed as … [Read more...] about Godzilla 2 Brings the Loch Ness Monster Into the MonsterVerse?

x Aside from DC and WB, who, keep in mind, dropped the first footage from Wonder Woman 1984, Shazam! and Aquaman – sadly, only the latter two have made it online – arguably no one had a better San Diego Comic-Con than Michael Dougherty and Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The third instalment into Legendary Entertainment’s MonsterVerse put the entire world on notice when it unleashed an electrifying first trailer – seen above – and an equally jaw-dropping poster. Unfortunately, both had to be used in order to counteract Dougherty’s comment from earlier in the month, in which the director stated Godzilla: King of the Monsters won’t do much to set up the title fight of unimaginable magnitude when Gojira goes toe-to-toe with the Giant Gorilla in Godzilla Vs. Kong. However, if a new fan theory does prove right, there’s a kaiju-sized connection between King of the Monsters and its predecessor, Kong: Skull Island, hiding in plain … [Read more...] about Godzilla: King Of The Monsters Theory Teases Huge Kong: Skull Island Connection
x Having already seen a release date fall by the wayside, Warner Bros. announced earlier this year – much to fan vexation, mind you – that Godzilla: King of the Monsters had been pushed back another couple of months, this time to May 31st, 2019. After all, we’ve been through this song and dance before, and the outcome is almost never positive. Nonetheless, director Michael Dougherty somehow managed to keep the more misanthropic moviegoer at bay by teasing the arrival of the three-headed dragon, King Ghidorah. And just this week, the Trick r’ Treat and Krampus helmsman even confirmed that Godzilla: King of the Monsters would indeed be stopping by Hall H at SDCC. Apparently, the approaching of the “largest convention of its kind in the world” was all it took for the floodgates to open regarding the third installment into Legendary Pictures’ MonsterVerse. That’s because in addition to providing us with an early look … [Read more...] about Godzilla: King Of The Monsters Won’t Do Much To Set Up Godzilla Vs. Kong
"Remakes are bad." That's the standard issue line whenever we hear about our favorite properties getting a newly announced filmic make-over. Yet there are a ton of examples of the cinematic remake done right. So, after we watched the awesome trailer for Luca Gudagnino's re-envisioning of Dario Argento's Suspiria earlier this week, the team got together to try and decide what our favorites from this crop actually are. Because loving these movies is way more fun than hating on them, so sound off in the comments below regarding what you think some of the best remakes of all time really are... ***** True Grit  (d. & w. Joel & Ethan Coen) While discussing this round of BMD picks, we had a little controversy about whether subsequent adaptations of an original novel or story should be considered remakes. Is every version of Dracula a remake of his first cinematic incarnation or just an additional take on Bram Stoker’s novel? I was … [Read more...] about BMD Picks: Our Favorite Remakes
