Back in 2014, Legendary Pictures showed a teaser trailer for Godzilla 2 which included silhoutted title cards that read Codename: Rodan, Codename: Mothra, and Codename: Ghidorah, which got us Godzilla fans hugely excited at the prospect of three other monsters from the Japanese Godzilla series appearing in the sequel to the 2014 American Godzilla. Not much was then heard about this until the other day when SciFi Japan revealed the full credits for Kong: Skull Island, including this line near the end: Characters of “Godzilla,” “King Ghidorah,” “Mothra” and “Rodan” created and owned by Toho Co., Ltd. The website pointed out that those characters would only be credited if they are referred to or shown in the movie….which leads naturally to the conclusion that there will be a post-credits stinger which will tease not only Godzilla: King of Monsters but also the inclusion in that film of King Ghidorah, Mothra and Rodan….though some are saying that it may be little more than a modified version of that 2014 teaser.

In any case, it does seem that Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be a partial remake of the 1965 Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster, in which Godzilla, Rodan [the giant pterodactyl] and Mothra [the giant moth] all have to set aside their differences and team to fight Ghidorah [the alien three headed dragon]. It will be released on March 22, 2019, but for the time being we have Kong: Skull Island out on March 10, 2017, and a King Kong Vs Godzilla remake is set for a May 29, 2020 release.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
