The scene ends with Godzilla's roar. This leads into Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019). See more »
They are pushing so many sequels, prequels, reboots and offshoots that the cash-in is going to make Hollywood collapse unto itself. Who needs any more reboots?? One more X-Men and the world shall vomit unto itself. I have the remedy for what ails Hollywood though: Go to Unoriginality Anonymous meetings and force yourself to try to write an original script People should boycott all these nefarious cash-ins Ban JJ Abrams from anywhere near Los Angeles (and his ilk) No more Morgan Freeman either Give Samuel Jackson an integrity infusion etc
As for this film: A group of cash whore actors gather in a film studio to parody the original dignified metaphor that was King Kong. The actors make jokes that are hilariously funny. Then they run away and ambush and attack Jurassic style. Then they go somewhere and there are a lot of explosions. The enemies are ugly, and they also fight each other, so it's OK to kill them. After two hours the film ends. The film is marketed to kiddies, kiddies-in-brain and China (via the token Chinese eye candy or in this case plain vanilla useless whatever..)
Did you hear? Kong called his agent in New York City, USA at the Empire State Building to ask his images be erased from this turkey and demand that his agent get him better work going forward. The agent wouldn't take his call however. How could he? He didn't recognize the caller. That isn't King Kong after all.
