Michael Dougherty Talks Trick 'r Treat 2

Michael Dougherty talks Trick ‘r Treat 2 and what we can expect for the sequel to Trick ‘r Treat (2007). I personally have Trick ‘r Treat as a Halloween tradition to watch on Halloween night. The perfect example of everything a Halloween horror anthology should be. Michael Dougherty said that we can expect more of the same structure as the first film, but it digs deeper behind the “curtain.” Legendary Pictures announced that they were officially moving forward with the Trick ‘r Treat sequel two years ago. Trick ‘r Treat 2 is currently in development and should go into production soon. Michael Dougherty is currently promoting Krampus (2015), so we have a little wait.

GODZILLA VS. KING KONG Confirmed for 2020 Theatrical Release

Legendary Films and Warner Bros. have confirmed that Godzilla vs. King Kong (2020) is officially releasing in movie theaters in 2020. This clash will come after the Kong: Skull Island (2017) set to release in movie theaters on March 10, 2017, and Godzilla 2 in 2018. I can only hope that we get a fully “baked” story and a few clashes before the big final fight or at least a long feature rich battle scene. How excited are you to see this film, they have a lot of time to think about it and execute it.

Trick 'R Treat Graphic Novel - Cover Art / Preview Page / Release Details

I am still waiting on the Trick ‘R Treat 2 / Trick ‘R Treat sequel so I will most likely grab this horror graphic novel via Legendary available now. Cover art, preview page, and press release details below.

Guillermo del Toro PACIFIC RIM 2 Delayed Indefinitely!

What?! Pacific Rim 2/Pacific Rim: Maelstrom was chugging along well then bam, delayed indefinitely. So once again, visionary Guillermo del Toro has thought up of a terrific film that the film studios thinks is too large to make, similar to the Hellboy 3 news. The first Pacific Rim (2013) movie had an estimated $190 million budget and grossed an estimated $411 million worldwide. I guess this was not enough profit for the film studios to invest in continuing the Pacific Rim story, really? Film studios want to shell out less than $5 million and rake in $100 million in theaters alone. Don’t we all but quality demands financing. What happened to the DVD, VOD, and other sales? Greed and no vision. All in perspective, Legendary Pictures is gearing up to make a Godzilla vs King Kong movie so I bet they are going all out to make that movie, and they just do not want to spend more money right now.

GODZILLA VS KING KONG Moving Forward at Warner Bros

Warner Bros is allowing Legendary Pictures to bring the new King Kong movie, Kong: Skull Island (2017) to Warner Bros so that everything will be done under one roof for the epic battle of Godzilla vs King Kong movie.

We may not see any sign of the showdown until the second Godzilla film releases in three years. How many of you want to see the epic rematch of Godzilla vs King Kong?

Hellboy 3 would need some major money backing it to bring these few elements to the screen in the way it should. We detailed the major elements below so enjoy these Hellboy 3 leaks. Legendary Pictures, what’s up?

Guillermo del Toro is prepping to film Pacific Rim 2 (2017), Pacific Rim: Maelstrom (2017), but is already thinking about Pacific Rim 3.

I am sure fans of both franchises would love to see a crossover between Godzilla and Jaegers. Do you think this will be a good idea for Pacific Rim 3?
