Godzilla sequel more like #KongSkullIsland than the 2014 original, early reactions claim!
Last night early test screenings were reportedly held for next year's Godzilla sequel, Godzilla: King of the Monsters and as expected, viewer reactions and initial thoughts made their way online!
To sum up the majority of feedback, it sounds like #Godzilla2 will be a lot more action-packed like Kong: Skull Island and less atmospheric and subtle like the 2015 original. Twitter user Jeremy Conrad, who we sourced the original claims of the test screenings from yesterday, followed up today, adding that the monster fights are apparently "epic", while plot and character development seem to have taken a back seat:
Jeremy Conrad Twitter tweets: sounds like the monster fight in #GodzillaKingOfTheMonsters are absolutely EPIC.
Human characters are cardboard and the story is dumb, but you only care about epic monster fight, Right?
Compared more to #Skullisland than #Godzilla 1. That good.
Of course these are merely opinions being reiterated, but the knowledge of King of the Monsters focusing more on the Monsters and their action than #Godzilla2014 is something we've known would happen since 2015. With having 4 or more total monsters in the film, 3 of which requiring proper introductions and backstory, it leaves very little room for human character and plot development. However, following the fairly unanimous reactions to #GarethEdwards' original, it would appear that fans really are more interested in seeing Monsters brawl and care less about the human characters caught in the mayhem.
Keep in mind, assuming the reactions are true, these are very early reactions to a very rough version of Godzilla 2. Over the next year, #MichaelDougherty and the post production team will undoubtedly iron out any wrinkles prior to its March 22nd, 2019 release date.
Thanks to Ben for the heads up!
