Weekly news recap: A whole lotta Monster Planet news; a whole lotta other news

If this were a typical week, the highlight of Godzilla-related discussion might have been the two new sculpts coming out for the Bandai Movie Monsters series. The frozen Godzilla is the first real merch we have for Godzilla’s fifth form, after all.

Or, y’know, the Japanese Blu-Ray release of Shin Godzilla. They tweaked some scenes from the theatrical version, and there was also copious behind the scenes stuff and deleted scenes. (Dear Funimation: I know you’re going to skip on extras, but we’d be happier if you didn’t.)

But all of that went out the window with Anime Japan’s booth reveals for the new Godzilla anime.

As we previously noted, the film will be titled Godzilla: Kaijuu Wakusei (from here on, I’ll just say “Monster Planet”), but that’s just the start; it’ll be released in November and be the first film in a trilogy! Right away this is exciting and somewhat concerning – do they have all the scripts written? What sort of release cycle are they shooting for? Hopefully we don’t wind up in a Rebuild of Evangelion scenario, but let’s give them the benefit of the doubt.

There was a lot of neat stuff at Anime Japan, including a human-sized model of one of the anime’s mecha suits. Visitors were also given a file with a history of the world in-universe, which is certainly intriguing, listing various monster attacks throughout the early 21st century (there’s Godzilla, Rodan, and Anguirus, but also some deeper cuts like Orga, Dagahra, Dogora, and Kamacuras. Also, “Operation Hedorah” involving biological and chemical weapons, which sounds like a great idea), and first contact with two(!) different alien races, the Birsard and the Exif. Wondering what the Exif look like? We’ve got one in the released character profiles:

The whole planet gets evacuated by 2048, but 20 space-years (20,000 earth years) later, humanity returns to reclaim the Earth from the monsters when their target world winds up being pretty inhospitable as well. The whole thing gives me shades of World Without End, Gunbuster, Planet of the Apes, and more, but it’s definitely taking the Godzilla franchise into unexplored territory. Here’s looking forward to November!

There was also a lot of non-Godzilla stuff this week!

  • We have a trailer for Adam Wingard’s Death Note movie. I think Light looks a little gothy as opposed to the pretty boy of the source material, but we’ll see how it turns out.

  • A trailer for the new season of Mystery Science Theater 3000, complete with Reptilicus and an Inframan nod.

  • Netflix is also getting a live-action show based on Blazing Transfer Student, AKA “that Kazuhiko Shimamoto manga adapted into one to the greatest OVAs never commercially available stateside”. My mind is sort of blown; posting the anime OP since there’s no trailer or anything yet for the live-action one.

  • A teaser for the new Mazinger Z movie:

  • The trailer for the live-action Blood C movie could use more monsters:

  • The Astro Boy prequel Atom the Beginning continues to look like a show to watch next season.

  • Toku will be airing Ultraman 80 in the US starting tomorrow (for the handful of people who actually get the channel).

  • Sentai Filmworks licensed Gatchaman Fighter. They just need to get the live-action movie to complete the franchise now, right?

  • Speaking of Gatchaman, we’ve got a new trailer for the Tatsunoko mash-up Infini-T Force.

  • I guess the Eagle Talon crossover ads for Suicide Squad must have gone over well, because now a whole DC Super Heroes vs. Eagle Talon movie is in the works. It looks amazing.

  • Want to see Stan Lee in full hype mode? See the latest trailer for The Reflection:

  • Mamoru Oshii got interviewed about the Hollywood Ghost in the Shell flick (I keep wanting to say “the new movie”, then remembering that’s actually the title of a different GitS picture), and pretty much had only good things to say. Then he tried to pitch his other famous cops-&-mecha opus Patlabor, so here’s hoping Hollywood is listening.
  • A pretty fun fan film for Chroma Squad:

Whew, that’s a lot of cool stuff. Let’s call it a wrap for this week; as always leave a comment if we missed something and seeya next time!

Update: sure enough, something slipped by – Steve Ryfle and Ed Godziszewsky’s biography of Ishiro Honda is up for preorder!

Happy 50th to Guilala, Japan’s ridiculous kaiju icon

While we may be in a new kaiju boom, it’s dwarfed by the one half a century ago. 1967 was the zenith, with the televised conclusions of the original Ultraman, Space Giants, Akuma-kun, and Booska, with the debuts of Ultraseven, Giant Robo, Akakage, Monster Prince, Captain Ultra, Esper, The King Kong ShowChibi Monster Yadamon, Oraa Guzura Dado, and the retooling of Ninja Hattori-kun into Ninja Hattori-kun+Ninja Monster Jippou. On the more theatrical side, we had cinematic releases from the big studios: Son of Godzilla and King Kong Escapes from Toho, Gamera vs. Gyaos from Daiei, Gappa the Triphibian Monster from Nikkatsu, Cyborg 009: Monster War and (the South Korean co-production) Yongary from Toei. Into that fray Shochiku submitted their one major kaiju feature (of the golden age, at least, since they did eventually go on to works like Moon Over Tao and Higanjima), Uchuu Daikaiju Guilala (Space Giant Monster Guilala), better known stateside as The X from Outer Space. (It’s not a great retitle, but at least we didn’t rename the monster “Itoka” like they did in France, or, as Germany always does, bring in Frankenstein.)

I won’t attempt posts for the anniversaries of all of the properties mentioned above, but I thought Guilala deserved a shoutout for having a career so strangely prolific and prolifically strange. While the monster’s debut film is a little silly, it hardly stands out for over-the-top in ludicrousness when you remember that the genre was dominated by a turtle that turns into a flying saucer. Yet, as the only (and therefor flagship) giant monster creation of the studio, Guilala became a stand-in for the genre as a whole in their productions, and thus had a storied career after his debut film in the world of comedy.

If you haven’t had a chance to catch the original film, by all means, check it out, along with the other Shochiku genre flicks available in a nice collection from Criterion. As I’ve mentioned previously, it’s got a relatively high budget and decent production values (heck, Akira Watanabe worked on it!), an international cast, and plenty of scifi gadgetry, clearly aping the Toho formula. Better still, the monster’s design is quite memorable, even if its name (which basically boils down to “gi” from “gigas” and “la” from “largus”…we get it, it’s big) is a little generic.

Where it might have been too little, too late for launching a franchise in its own right, though, is that it feels more classically Toho, with a single monster rather than a wrestling match, and a love story that would bore the progressively younger audiences that the monster movies were attracting, on top of audience dilution and diminishing returns across the board. So, this was doomed to become Guilala’s only outing…almost.

Right off the bat, I’ll briefly mention that there was a manga adaptation of the movie that ran in Shonen King, by Takeshi Koshiro. I haven’t been able to track it down, but Koshiro’s  forte was adaptations, including the likes of Ultra Q, Terror of Mechagodzilla, Fight Dragon, Zone Fighter, Battle Fever J, Gaiking, Macross, and more. I’m particularly quite fond of his Godzilla vs. Gigan manga, but that’s a movie made to be a comic book.

I’ve been told that Guilala’s next appearance was a cameo the next year in the 1968 musical Chiisana Snack, though I haven’t tracked it down to confirm this, nor found much corroborating. The film gets its name from the biggest hit song of the group Purple Shadows, who star in the film, and also features future Kamen Rider star Hiroshi Fujioka (who you can also see in The X From Outer Space!). It doesn’t quite seem like the sort of thing a monster would fit into, but stranger things have happened.

A decade later Guilala got broad international exposure, in disguised form, with the 1978 US picture The Bad News Bears Go to Japan. There’s a sequence in the movie featuring a commercial for baseball bats, where a little leaguer uses one to smack down a rampaging kaiju. Eagle-eyed viewers will recognized the feet that are shown stomping through buildings at the start of the scene as belonging to Guilala, probably not done so much as a commentary on the use of stock footage as a simple employment thereof.

Guilala’s next outing was a little more high-profile, but still relegated to a comedy cameo. The 1984 film Tora-san’s Forbidden Love (the 34th in the series of comedies about the lovable loser Tora-san….and people think Godzilla has a lot of movies!) opens with a dream sequence (they all open with some dream sequence or another) where our protagonist must battle Guilala. It’s relatively short, and the rest of the film is just about our hero developing a crush on a married woman, so this would be more of a recommendation for completists or intersectional cinephiles, but it was the first new footage of the monster in quite a while (spoilers, what’s not stock footage is a cheap-looking model). The subject of the dream sequence here was definitely a play on the 1984 reboot of Godzilla (they even mistake Guilala for Godzilla as a joke), but I wonder if it influenced Godzilla’s own similar cameo in Always: Sunset on Third Street 2.

In the mid-1990s there were rumors of a revival, including an article about a Guilala vs. Gappa movie that was printed in G-Fan, which makes sense considering how the characters are frequently marketed together, but it doesn’t seem like that film was ever seriously considered by the studios involved. A super deformed version of Guilala did show up in 1998 as a mascot at the Kamakura Cinema World theme park, but the attraction shut down shortly thereafter.

The most significant revival to date was 2008, though. Director Minoru Kawasaki was no stranger to tokusatsu comedies, having hit international stardom with titles like The Calamari Wrestler and The World Sinks Except for Japan, so he made a natural fit for the new film, Monster X Strikes Back: Attack the G8 Summit, which was essentially an extended political cartoon about the actual G8 conference going on in Japan at the time. The movie goes full parody of the kaiju genre (even the Japanese title “Guilala no Gyakushu” plays on what a cliche that verbiage is in monster movies, like “Return of X” or “Bride of X” would be in English). This time, stock footage is used deliberately for comedic effect, and while debatable,  I have an inkling that Kawasaki deliberately uses gaijin with poor line delivery because he thinks it’s funny… he’s just done it too many times in too many films to feel like a coincidence (I mean, come on, the French PM is played by an Iranian dude who flat-out admits to not knowing any French).

The end result is a mixed bag that’s generally not terribly well-received, but even detractors generally admit to a chuckle in the scene where a precocious child is kicked out of the war room. The fact that the Russian politician quickly suggested killing Guilala with Polonium 210 was my personal favorite gag (dark and tasteless it may be, at least it was topical), followed by the fact that the US president is literally named Burger, and the…end…reveal…well, it must be seen to be believed. However, the battle between Guilala and Take-Majin, who’s a giant Beat Takeshi, is the biggest highlight of the picture for sure.

This wasn’t Guilala’s only clash with another giant, though, as Kawasaki’s signature hero (aside from Iko-chan) Den Ace, the goofy, beer-powered jerk of the genre, also met the creature in a direct-to-video special Zettai Yaseru Den Ace (which would translate to something like “The Den Ace Who’s Definitely Going to Lose Weight”) at the same time. I still haven’t quite gotten around to plopping down $25 on this one, but based on the other Den-Ace stuff I’ve seen, I expect some very low-rent but amusing short episodes, most of which would not have Guilala involved.

One last, even stranger hurrah in 2008, Guilala was selected for a commercial for job hunting site the Ladders. It’s not entirely clear if he was the company’s number one choice, but the character was licensed, and the suit was flown to South Africa to film a commercial for American television. That same advertising company had previously done an awesome kyodai hero commercial for Garmin, so I guess it’s just in their DNA.

As of March 25th, Guilala is 50 years old. I can’t think of another character who’s had a track record so consistently off-beat, but hopefully the future holds some more surprises for this spore-born, x-shaped, radioactive space lizard.

Godzilla (disambiguation)

Along with the Japanese home video release of Shin Godzilla came news of the title for the next film in the franchise (the Polygon Pictures anime release due out this year): Godzilla – 怪獣惑星, (“Godzilla – Kaiju Wakusei”) or “Godzilla – Monster Planet”. Immediately comments sections lit up with comparisons to a 1994 Sanrio theme park ride (yes, Godzilla did meet Hello Kitty) 怪獣プラネットゴジラ (“Kaijuu Planet Godzilla”), whose official English name is “Monster Planet of Godzilla“. Some would call this confusing, but I, for one, am sighing in relief, and that goes to show just how difficult naming conventions get with this franchise.

So, right off the bat, we can assuage our fears about this anime film just being named “Godzilla”, and that’s already a win. Andy and I make a game out of how obtuse we can be when it comes to that being the title:

Andy: I’m watching Godzilla tonight.

Me: Which one?

Andy: The movie.

Me: Which one?

Andy: The one just called “Godzilla”.

Me: Which one?

Andy: The reboot.

Me: Which one?

Andy: The American one.

Me: Which one?

This is usually caused by Josh’s bemusement at how anyone can keep straight Destroy All Planets, Destroy All Monsters, All Monsters AttackGiant Monsters All-out Attack, Attack of the Monsters, Attack of the Super Monsters, etc. Alternate titles can simplify or confuse things as well. To help you out with your own “Who’s on First” routine, here’s a handy guide.

There are arguably four films titled Godzilla: 1954, 1984, 1998, and 2014. That’s the English title for the 1954 film (we’ll get back to the Americanization), the 1998 film, and the 2014 film, while in Japan those four films are known as ゴジラ (“Godzilla”), ゴジラ (“Godzilla”),  the redundantゴジラ GODZILLA, and  GODZILLA ゴジラ (though I assume nobody actually says “Godzilla Godzilla”, many of the US posters use this as well ). The 1984 film is officially named Return of Godzilla in English (the official Blu Ray also uses “Godzilla 1984″, after the Americanization Godzilla 1985, though as Matt Frank noted, that title is mostly used by “weeaboo garbage children”), and should not be confused with the novel Godzilla Returns, or Godzilla Raids Again, even though the Japanese title (ゴジラの逆襲) might make you think that based on the translation of 大魔神逆襲 to “Return of Daimajin” (that whole series has some real title confusion, btw). The comic adaptation of the 1984 film still uses the Godzilla title, rather than Return of Godzilla, except when it was reprinted as Terror of Godzilla, which is coincidentally an alternate title for the prior film Terror of MechagodzillaGodzilla is also the title of a Hanna Barbera cartoon that was part of “The Godzilla Power Hour”, the title of multiple video games (in 1983, 1993, and 2015, the last of which is also known as “Godzilla Vs“), and the title of IDW’s second ongoing Godzilla comic, later retitled Godzilla: History’s Greatest Monster. Oh, and don’t confuse the Godzilla comic with The Godzilla Comic.

The first Godzilla movie was originally heavily altered when it came to the US, and released as Godzilla, King of the Monsters! in 1956. This is also sort of the title of the upcoming 2019 movie Godzilla: King of the Monsters, as well as the Marvel comic series from 1977, the Dark Horse comic series from 1995, and Scott Ciencin’s first Godzilla novel. The Americanized movie was released in Japan as 怪獣王ゴジラ (“Kaiju-oh Godzilla”), which is also the title of a Gameboy game and Hiroshi Kawamoto’s manga series. Then there was the 1977 Italian colorized version of the 1956 Americanization, titled Godzilla: Il Re dei Monstri, which is also sometimes used for the non-colorized version as well, and gets super confusing when you remember that the Italian title for Godzilla Raids Again is just Il Re dei Monstri. It’s sort of like how we have an SNK game titled King of the Monsters that’s about kaiju but unrelated to Godzilla.

But there’s plenty more potential for confusion:

  • An intuitive translation for the Japanese title of Godzilla Raids Again would be “Godzilla’s Revenge”, but that title is weirdly actually used for the US cut of All Monsters Attack.
  • It’s easy to mix up Mothra vs. Godzilla (1964) with Godzilla vs. Mothra (1992), especially when Mothra vs. Godzilla was re-released stateside as “Godzilla vs. Mothra” numerous times. You could refer to them as Godzilla vs. The Thing and Godzilla and Mothra: Battle for Earth, respectively, but those titles are dumb (needless to say, no relation to the movie The Thing). While we’re at it, there’s no “Return of” on the Japanese titles of the Return of Mothra trilogy, so Mothra (1961) and Mothra (1996) have certainly been mixed up in the past.

  • Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla is how you romanize ゴジラ対メカゴジラ. You’d think that would go to ゴジラvsメカゴジラ, but that gets labeled Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla II, despite it not being a sequel to Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla and not having Mechagodzilla II in it (there is a Mechagodzilla II in Terror of Mechagodzilla, though, which is the sequel to the prior movie). You might want to translate that first film as “Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla” instead, but that title is already taken by ゴジラXメカゴジラ, which never actually refers to the enemy monster as Mechagodzilla at all.

  • Destroy All Monsters is the 1968 movie. Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters is a fighting game for SNES. Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee is a fighting game for Gamecube and X-Box. The Japanese title of the movie, 怪獣総進撃 (“Kaiju Soshingeki”) is also the title of the first episode of Return of Ultraman.
  • All Kaiju Daishingeki (All Monsters Attack) is the 1969 movie, Godzilla: Kaiju no Daishingeki is a Game Gear game.
  • Godzilla on Monster Island is the US title for Godzilla vs. Gigan, a children’s picture book, and a slot machine game. Not to be confused with show Godzilla Island, anime Godzilland, book Godzilla: Journey to Monster Island, or the game Godzilla: Heart-pounding Monster Island.

  • A lot of the fandom refers to Giant Monsters All-out Attack as “GMK”, since Godzilla, Mothra, and King Ghidorah are the headliners. However, when Ghidorah the Three-Headed Monster was re-released in 1971, its title also included “Godzilla Mothra King Ghidorah“, so “GMK” could really mean either film.

  • Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah is the 1991 film, King Ghidorah vs. Godzilla is the abbreviated re-release of Invasion of Astro Monster.
  • The Monster X from Godzilla Final Wars is not the same one from Gamera vs. Monster X, and neither is the same as the one in Monster X Strikes Back: Attack the G8 Summit.

  • War of the Monsters (the game) is unrelated to the Gamera movie War of the Monsters (another title for Gamera vs. Barugon), which is unrelated to the game Godzilla 2: War of the MonstersGodzilla the Series‘ arc “Monster Wars”, or the board game Godzilla: Kaiju World Wars.

  • The novel Godzilla 2000 is unrelated to the movie Godzilla 2000 – Millennium, otherwise known as Godzilla 2000. Neither work came out in the year 2000, but Godzilla x Megaguirus did.

I feel like I should remark that Godzilla vs. The Space Monster, Godzilla vs. The Cosmic Monster, Godzilla vs Space GodzillaA Space Godzilla, and Star Godzilla are different things as well, and somehow cleverly tie this all back to the Monster Planet thing. But anyway, you should now feel adequately armed to go confuse people outside the fandom!

Maser Patrol podcast episode 28: Kong – Skull Island

After that extensive countdown earlier in the year, we got to go see the new King Kong movie, Kong: Skull Island. In this episode, Kevin, Josh, Andy and Justin talk for longer than the movie’s run time, and mostly on the topic of the film, but veering into some general Kong-related (and tangentially, loosely related) topics as well.

Show notes:

  • The statue that scandalized Paris:

Weekly news recap for 3/19

Not a whole lot to cover this week, but there were certainly a couple of note-worthy developments:

  • Here’s a look at the new Devilman for Netflix: Devilman crybaby. (Between this and Cutie Honey Tears, I wonder if that’ll be a theme? Like, will we get “Mazinger Wept” or “Dororon Enma-kun Lacrimation”?) It’ll be directed by the ever-stylish Masaaki Yuasa, and based on the stark black-on-red in this trailer, I’m sort of getting a Samurai Jack vibe.

  • Speaking of Netflix, they have worldwide rights to this year’s Godzilla anime film. Not much of a surprise, considering their past dealings with Polygon Pictures.
  • The Hollywood Reporter has a piece about Brave Storm. While the author doesn’t appear to recognize the project’s relation to Silver Kamen or Super Robot Red Baron, it’s cool to see it getting international press. If only Ronin Entertainment were still around to license it stateside!

  • We’ve got two trailers for different scifi comedies based on Shonen Jump manga titles, both directed by Yuichi Fukuda: Gintama and The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.

  • The upcoming TV drama Frankenstein’s Love is apparently set in modern times, but you wouldn’t know if from looking at the main character’s fashion. The show (starting in April) will be a romance between the monster and a lady scientist, and presumably contains no battles against Baragon.

  • This year’s 17th and 18th issues of Shonen Sunday have a new Rumiko Takahashi miniseries, Millennium Innocence. It’s cool to see her doing shorts again (honestly, Rinne would have worked better as one).

That’s a wrap for this week, but as always, let us know if something got left out!

Weekly news recap: This time with kaiju

There wasn’t any kaiju coverage last week, but this time we can make up for that!

  • Terry Rossio, writer of the abandoned 1994 Hollywood Godzilla flick, is getting another chance, this time for Godzilla vs Kong! Here’s to another try!
  • Looks like Chofu will be hosting the 8th Amateur Kaiju Movie Contest on April 1. It’s cool to see how Kiyotaka Taguchi is still quite active in the independent kaiju scene.

  • Speaking of Taguchi, his segment Female Weapon 701 (what, no “Scorpion”?) will be one of the 28 segments in the upcoming anthology Tetsudon: Kaiju Dream Match. It has a giant Haruka Momokawa, who, presumably, actually could go on a date with Eleking.

  • A little more concept art for the Godzilla anime movie. Can’t it just be Anime Japan already? Do we really have to wait two weeks?

Non-kaiju stuff:

  • Kyoryuger is getting a Korean sequel series, Kyoryuger Brave….while I’m not sure how it’ll stack up against the Japanese series, at least it looks better than Zaido. Koichi Sakamoto (no stranger to hopping overseas to work on Power Rangers) is set to direct, so if nothing else it should maintain some tonal consistency with the original. If this is successful, I wonder if we’ll see similar cases like this in the future with other Sentai shows around the world; I’d much rather see an internationally-made sequel than an actor-replacement edit like we get in the US.

  • We have a trailer for Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable Part 1! They actually changed the color of the sky to make it look like the manga, and I’ve got a lot of questions about how well that works.

  • You can get Garo armor in the new Monster Hunter XX game:

  • A trailer for the pro-wrestling movie Dynamite Wolf. This one skews more realism than superhero-type wrestlers, but it may still be of interest.

That’s a wrap for this week; as always, leave a comment if we missed something!

Kong count #1 – Honorable mentions

Well, after counting down all year, Kong: Skull Island is finally out! The Maser Patrol crew will be assembling a full review in coming days, but if you want a short version: “Go see it!”

Hope you’ve enjoyed the series! As a final hurrah, here are a handful of titles that we didn’t  quite get to during the Kong Count, for some reason or another, but we very easily could have (maybe the series should have been 100 posts long instead?):

  • The Asylum’s mockbuster King of the Lost World, probably the highest-profile thing not covered here.

  • The Italian movie Eve the Wild Woman, which was re-titled King of Kong Island in the US, despite having only normal-sized gorillas. Best watched in the Rifftrax version.

king-of-kong-island

  • The low-budget flick The Abominable, which as far as I know, isn’t available in its country of origin, but it is on DVD in Japan as Ice Kong.

  • The Abbot & Costello flick Africa Screams, which has a giant gorilla:

africa-screams

  • The X-rated parody Supersimian, which actually does have some decent stop-motion animation.

king-dong

  • The 1945 film The White Gorilla, an edit of the 1927 serial Perils of the Jungle with an ape named “Konga”

  • The storied fan-film made at Toho, Wolf-man vs. Godzilla clearly draws on King Kong vs. Godzilla.

WolfManvsG_2a

  • The artsiest Kong exploitation, 1978’s Bye Bye Monkey, which has someone adopt a chimp he finds in Kong’s corpse.

  • Multiple people have told me to watch the comedy King Kung Fu

  • The “Kong” episode of Alvin & the Chipmunks Go to the Movies

atc_kong_vhs_cover

  • Great Watchuka from the Hanna Barbera’s Godzilla:

  • Hiroshi Kawamoto’s Monster King Godzilla, which brings back MechaniKong.

  • Shigeru Mizuki’s manga Kind Kong, about a giant Kinichi Hagimoto fighting a mole monster.

    kind-kong kind-kong-2

While we’re at it, how about Mizuki’s manga Mr. Primitive?

  • The Disney comic strip Gorilla Gorilla

comic-zone

  • Numerous short stories, like “Desperate” from Dark Horse Presents or Phillip Jose Farmer’s “After Kong Fell”.

dhp-47

  • The 2013 stage musical

  • The uncompleted 1934 puppet movie The Lost Island

And we haven’t even touched all of the works that inspired Kong, such as

  • The Lost World
  • Creation
  • The Dinosaur and the Missing Link, A Prehistoric Tragedy
  • Heu-heu, or the Monster
  • Isle of Sunken Gold
  • Paul de Chailu’s travel guides
  • Along the Moonbeam Trail
  • The Ghost of Slumber Mountain

There may be some other as-of-yet unrevealed titles to get to eventually as well. Good thing there’s already another King Kong movie planned for 2020!
