Max Borenstein News

Max Borenstein is Returning to Script 'Godzilla 2' for Gareth Edwards Briefly: After scripting the successful reboot of Godzilla this past summer, Deadline reports writer Max Borenstein has been brought back to Legendary Pictures to script Godzilla 2, which has already been given a release date of June 8th, 2018. That's pretty far out, mainly since director Gareth Edwards has a Star Wars spin-off to direct before he returns to the King of Monsters, but it's good to hear that Legendary is getting Borenstein to work on the script right away.

‘Godzilla’ Writer Max Borenstein Scripting Sequel

screenrant.com – It may have been somewhat divisive due to the amount (or lack thereof) of screen time for its title character, but Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures’ reboot of Godzilla was by and large a success. Grossing $93.1 million domestically in its opening weekend, the creature feature ultimately fell victim to the second weekend blues (a 66.8 percent drop), but had strong enough legs to finish with $200.6 million in the States and $524.9 million worldwide.

Review: 'Godzilla' Is Just About As Awesome As It Needs to Be

GOJIRA
Success can be a film franchise's worst enemy, and Godzilla is a perfect case in point. The original was as thoughtful and subversive as a movie with a guy in a rubber suit has probably ever been, but as a series, the scaly behemoth's adventures have mostly been equal parts corn and cheese, and attempts to make the character modern and relevant for American audiences have ended in embarrassing failure.

First 'Godzilla' Trailer Feels Appropriately Epic

Godzilla
After the noisy, lime-colored misery of Roland Emmerich's Godzilla, we thought we'd seen enough of the big green guy for the next 50 years, and greeted Legendary's plans to reboot the nuclear-powered monster with a cynically scornful eyeroll. But perhaps we were a little too hasty. Unlike a lot of modern blockbuster directors, Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards has been keeping fairly mum while working on next year's reboot, and maybe that's because he knows he's delivering the goods -- at least if this new trailer is reflective of the movie as a whole.
