It's possible the film will get pushed to 2022 at this rate. They've shifted once, now facing a box office brawl with 007 and to top it off this Covid-19 virus will only be tailing off around Fall... I wouldn't be surprised if the movie gets bumped again now. Kinda want it to happen too, cause we need this one to be a box office success.
G. H. (Gman)GodzillaAdmin5334 XPMar-12-2020 12:29 PM
The problem is whether or not they can via their agreement with Toho.
IamNobodyMothra LarvaeMember64 XPMar-12-2020 1:17 PM
honestly, i think the delays are causing some hype? however monarch sciences no longer display Godzilla but does display the other three so online marketing may have started with this.

Shrugs. Oh well.
KingKaijuGojiraTitanosaurusMember926 XPMar-12-2020 1:28 PM
Sonuvah!!! Why can't they just release the trailer online already? They need to give us something and soon.
AntoniozillaMothra LarvaeMember38 XPMar-12-2020 2:30 PM
I think this benefits GvK. A trailer closer to the release date will prevent the hype dying down before it comes out
Gabriel SalomonBaragonMember171 XPMar-12-2020 2:50 PM
like Chris said, the movie could very well get delayed. With James Bond and Marvel's Eternals both coming out near GvK's current release, along with Coronavirus and late marketing, the film would do very bad in November considering all these cir***stances. If it is still going to be set for its release, I would say SDCC is the best time for a trailer to be shown. However, that could be canceled as well. A trailer could drop on the internet without a big cinema event premier, but I'm not sure if that would recieve as much attention, so I think the best option would be to push it back even further (though of course I would still like to see it ASAP). I'm really not sure anymore.
ChrisSpaceGodzillaAdmin23509 XPMar-12-2020 4:39 PM
Yeah, I was wondering how Toho's agreement with Legendary and WB would affect the possibility of another release date shift. I think given the cir***stances, if it means they can profit more off its release by doing so then the decision would be a no-brianer.

GvK is not the only casualty (A Quiet Place II comes to mind and has no release date now). Other movies will be affected too, just like concerts and sporting events.
It might not be a bad time to consider pay per view somehow. About five or so years ago, there was talk of releasing movies in theaters and streaming (PPV) the same day but I don't think it ever happened.
G. H. (Gman)GodzillaAdmin5334 XPMar-12-2020 10:44 PM
In addition to A Quiet Place II, both Mulan and Fast & Furious 9 have now been moved. (I will laugh my ass off if Mulan moves to November.)
Furious 9 hurts the most. Once my most anticipated movie of 2020... now my most anticipated of 2021 I suppose.
ChrisSpaceGodzillaAdmin23509 XPMar-14-2020 11:26 AM
You can't be serious about Furious 9.... LOL
UltraInstinct110Mothra LarvaeMember24 XPMar-14-2020 7:25 PM
They don't put the trailer online because cinemacon is specifically for industry insiders and press I think. Things there aren't meant to be shown to the public yet I guess
G. H. (Gman)GodzillaAdmin5334 XPMar-14-2020 11:02 PM
Dead serious! Those movies know exactly what they want to be and they do it with heart and charm--Bad ass, over-the-top, hilariously absurd storylines that have gone so far off the deep end they don't care how unrealistic they are. But they do it with a bunch of likable characters too.
If only King of the Monsters went all-in with that kind of over-the-top charm.

I know what you mean. I've never actually gotten the chance to see a Fast and Furious film, but I am aware of the over the top plots and sequences that make those movies so iconic. KotM seemed to be caught between a grounded/serious tone and just total none sense, coming off as a bit scatterbrained and unknowing of it's tone. I personally prefer the more grounded approach G14 took, and I would have liked that a bit more in KotM, but if GvK is going to go a more crazy rout (and seems like it is) I think it should try to embrace that instead of being conflicted between two different tones. A perfect example of this among the Fast and Furious films is Aquaman, a total whack and chaotic movie that I think works perfectly. However, considering the more grounded universe that has been astablished in the MonsterVerse so far (despite KotM's more fantastical approach), I still think the aircraft carrier (or at least what we know about it) is too much.
