Monsters have not been in vogue for quite a while now, although the American Godzilla film did OK. And the company that owns the rights to him, Legendary, also owns Kong, so they will rematch them in a couple of years. We’ll see if that attracts audiences.
In the meantime, the now obviously supersized Kong will headline an orginal flick this year. We’ll see if that turns out better than Peter Jackson’s remake. That had good stuff, but that guy needs to learn the advantages of brevity again.
