MILLIE BOBBY BROWN LEADS CAST OF “GODZILLA II: KING OF THE MONSTERS”

Godzilla II: King of the Monsters

To give the monster apocalypse “Godzilla II: King of the Monsters” a human face, writer-director Michael Dougherty enlisted an acclaimed, international, culturally diverse cast to bring to life the team of scientists, soldiers and civilians banding together against the monster horde, led by Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga and Millie Bobby Brown, as Mark, Emma and Madison Russell, respectively.

A sequel to the 2014 blockbuster “Godzilla,” the new film “King of the Monsters” follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.  When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.

“I think it’s a big old popcorn extravaganza,” cast member Kyle Chandler attests.  “Mike came in with a pretty stunning vision of a world overrun with 500-foot-tall monsters and a story that makes you care about what’s happening to the humans at their feet, and I’m very excited to see them mesh together.  My great expectation for the film is that people sitting in the theater will look up at this vast world and believe it could actually exist.”

“This movie is a veritable cacophony of crazy, ancient super-species and people will feel the action and adventure and have that adrenaline rush,” adds his fellow castmate Vera Farmiga.  “But it’s also important to tell a story that resonates, and I think this is a story that does.  That’s why Godzilla is still such a powerful figure.  He shines a light on real things.  What’s not to love about an atomic-breathing, 800-megaton monster who makes us feel all too human?”  

Taking on her first-ever feature film role, “Stranger Things” phenom Millie Bobby Brown knew she was jumping head-first into the deep end—a marathon shoot with a physically challenging role and a heavy visual effects component.  “But I accepted the challenge and loved it!” she says.  “The whole experience was very exciting.  The action scenes were super-fun—to watch and to do.  Just the scale of everything was so much bigger than anything I’m used to, and I never thought I’d be working with some of these actors.  If people think that just because I’m in the movie I didn’t still fangirl…  I was seriously fangirling,” she laughs.

With Kyle Chandler and Vera Farmiga playing Brown’s estranged parents, the three didn’t have to work hard to develop a family bond.  “We had a great time,” Chandler says.  “With any film, the final results are important, but it’s the process and the people and the friendships that stick with you.  We had a great cast and amazing crew on this.  I don’t think there was any time when we didn’t find the best in it.”  

“It was very easy to snap into that closeness and feel the affection that these characters have,” says Farmiga.  “Millie was just a joy, constantly singing and dancing and teaching me Fortnite dance moves.”

“I taught her how to dab. It’s hot,” Brown quips.  “And Kyle was amazing.  I watched every episode of ‘Friday Night Lights’ so I’ve been a fan since I was like seven.”

In Philippine cinemas May 29, “Godzilla II: King of the Monsters” is distributed in the Philippines by Warner Bros. Pictures, a WarnerMedia Company.  Use the hashtag#GodzillaMovie

About “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”

Following the global success of 2014’s “Godzilla” and 2017’s “Kong: Skull Island,” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse: “Godzilla II: King of the Monsters,” an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history.

The film was directed by Michael Dougherty (“Krampus”), and stars Oscar nominees Vera Farmiga (“Up in the Air,” “The Conjuring” films), and Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai”) and Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”), both reprising their “Godzilla” roles; Kyle Chandler (“The Wolf of Wall Street”); Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”) in her feature film debut; Bradley Whitford (“Get Out”); Thomas Middleditch (HBO’s “Silicon Valley”); Charles Dance (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”); O’Shea Jackson Jr. (“Straight Outta Compton”); Aisha Hinds (“Star Trek Into Darkness”); and Golden Globe nominee Zhang Ziyi (“Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”).

The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.  When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.

Dougherty directed from a script he wrote with Zach Shields.  The film was produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Brian Rogers, Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni, with Zach Shields, Barry H. Waldman, Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira serving as executive producers, and Alexandra Mendes and Jay Ashenfelter co-producing for Legendary.

JOSH GAD BACK TO LEND VOICE TO BAILEY IN “A DOG’S JOURNEY”

A Dog’s Journey

Josh Gad (Beauty and the Beast, Frozen) brings incredible wit, humor and depth to his role of Bailey in Universal Pictures’ new inspiring drama A Dog’s Journey, the sequel to the heartwarming global blockbuster A Dog’s Purpose.

In the film, beloved dog Bailey finds his new destiny and forms an unbreakable bond that will lead him, and the people he loves, to places they never imagined.

(Watch the film’s trailer at YouTube – https://youtu.be/dxl2Rp74MMU.)

Even though he embodies the voice and spirit of Bailey, Gad admits he wasn’t prepared for how he would react to the sequel’s screenplay. “I kept promising myself that there was no way I was going to allow myself to cry when I sat down to read the script for A Dog’s Journey,” he says. “Of course, immediately I was sobbing again. But what’s so incredible about the script and the movie—much like the first one—is although there are cathartic tears along the way, there’s also so much excitement. There’s so much adventure and laughter on this journey. I was blown away because I felt that the writers not only lived up to the first film, but in many ways set the bar even higher.”

When it came to filming the follow-up, Gad admits he naturally had trepidations. “There’s always hesitation when the opportunity arises to do a sequel, because you want to make sure that it’s for the right reasons,” he says. “Seeing the unbelievable amount of respect being paid to every single detail—from the filmmaking process to the script—has allowed me to lower my guard and realize that everybody wants to raise the bar; we all want to exceed what has already been established.”

Much like co-star Dennis Quaid, Gad is an avowed dog lover who lights up when he speaks about his rescue Dede, whom he calls a “mutt of craziness” and who serves as an integral part of his home. As the voice of Bailey, Gad appreciates the opportunity he has to help audiences move through feelings they have toward their pets…and their humanity.

“I can’t tell you how many times kids come up to me and say how unbelievably cathartic this movie was for them,” Gad says, “whether it’s losing a pet or losing a person in their lives. The greatest gift of being a part of this franchise is that these movies, while they are entertaining, are more than that. They offer, especially kids, an opportunity to deal with loss and to understand that the potential for a journey goes on long after our pets or loved ones leave this world.”

Director Gail Mancuso says, “Josh is so funny and adds such heart to Bailey. Not only is his performance comedic, it’s so heartfelt. He’s just perfect for it.”

In Philippine cinemas May 15, A Dog’s Journey is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.  Follow us on Facebook athttps://www.facebook.com/uipmoviesph/ ; Twitter at https://twitter.com/uipmoviesph and Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/uipmoviesph/.

About “Annabelle Comes Home”

“Annabelle Comes Home” is the third installment of New Line Cinema’s hugely successful “Annabelle” films starring the infamous sinister doll from the “Conjuring” universe.  Gary Dauberman, the screenwriter of the “Annabelle” films, “IT” and “The Nun,” makes his directorial debut on the film, which is produced by Peter Safran (“Aquaman”), who has produced all the films in the “Conjuring” franchise, and “Conjuring” universe creator James Wan (“Aquaman”).

Determined to keep Annabelle from wreaking more havoc, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren bring the possessed doll to the locked artifacts room in their home, placing her “safely” behind sacred glass and enlisting a priest’s holy blessing.  But an unholy night of horror awaits as Annabelle awakens the evil spirits in the room, who all set their sights on a new target—the Warrens’ ten-year-old daughter, Judy, and her friends.

The film stars McKenna Grace (Netflix’s “The Haunting of Hill House,” “Captain Marvel”) as Judy; Madison Iseman (“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” “Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween”) as her babysitter, Mary Ellen; and Katie Sarife (TV’s “Youth and Consequences” and “Supernatural”) as troubled friend Daniela; with Patrick Wilson (“Aquaman,” “The Conjuring” and “Insidious” films) and Vera Farmiga (“The Conjuring” films, upcoming “Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” TV’s “Bates Motel”) reprising their roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren.
