I’m not sure how to read this interview with Adam Wingard. He’s helming the upcoming crossover movie with the Legendary Pictures versions of Godzilla and King Kong, but while he promises good fights (which I hope we’ll get to see) he also says “If I had my way, I want people to really be teary-eyed at the end of the movie, and be that invested in to what’s going on”, which is not what I watch giant monster battles for. There have been times you felt for either monster in their previous incarnations, but if he’s going for something more than that (think Peter Jackson’s Kong but more empty “emotions” without substance) I don’t think that’s going to work. But we have until 2020 to find out.
looking for something specific?
