After Godzilla rampaged through the box office, Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures have given the green light for a sequel, according to Deadline. Godzilla’s opening weekend is estimated to have earned $93 million domestically, the highest opening day for a film in the U.S .this year. In addition, Godzilla earned $103 million internationally, making it the highest opening for a film for 2014 so far. The king of all monsters has already succeeded in covering its $160 million budget in just opening weekend, which must have hastened the executives' decision to confirm a future Godzilla film. There is no additional information regarding director Gareth Edwards' involvement in the sequel, but it can be assumed he will be involved, because of his successful adaptation of the fan-favorite franchise. Previously, Edwards had stated that if he were to be given the opportunity to return for a sequel, he would like to continue in integrating the suspense and action elements that are inspired by Steven Spielberg’s directorial decisions in large-scale films. There were a few very subtle Easter eggs throughout the film, involving what creatures could be used for the upcoming sequel, but it’s far to early to assume which will actually be chosen for to be Godzilla’s rival. Personally, I’d be thrilled to see the return of King Ghidorah, but I’ll honestly be pleased with anything as long as the sequel is certain. Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
