‘Godzilla 2’ Gets June 2018 Release Date

Warner Bros. and Legendary have scheduled the next installment in their “Godzilla” franchise for a June 8, 2018, release.

Gareth Edwards, who is also developing one of the “Star Wars” standalone pics, returns as director of the monster movie sequel.

“Godzilla” has already grossed $508 million worldwide, making a follow-up something of an inevitability. Legendary financed 75% of “Godzilla’s” $160 million budget, with Warner providing the rest and the companies splitting marketing costs.

Legendary recently announced a “King Kong” prequel, “Skull Island,” which will bow November 2016.
