Looks like a bunch of reviewers and even some other fan forums have confirmed the upcoming 4K release of Godzilla 2014 has the same darkness issues as the 2014 Blu-ray release.

It's frustrating I'm unable to watch the movie the way it was presented in theaters. A grey filter has completely washed out the colors and darkened the film to a point that cranking up the gamma or brightness only does so much.

It looks even worse on the 4K screenshots which seem to have an added amount of contrast. Now I've been told the sources of these screenshots do not reflect how they work on 4K televisions--which isn't surprising--But there's no way these shots will look as good as the movie did in theaters or during the trailer.

Disappointed in Warner Brothers Home Entertainment. I think I'll be saving my money...

I really was hoping the release would fix this.

Jeez, the 4k really does look darker in that blu ray screenshot. :( too bad, Maybe we'll get a bright version of the movie in the future.

Godzilla 2014,

Giant Flashlight Edition. They didn’t need all the fancy brightening techniques, they just needed to shine a flashlight on the movie and re record it. 

That’s how technology works!
