It may be the last film for Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. together (before Universal become their new distributor), but they hope the $160m disaster movie will be a huge pay-off with Godzilla.
The original 1954 Japanese disaster movie that at the time cost just $1.5m to make but made a $750k profit for movie studio, Toho. Sony Pictures’ 1998 version may have a lot of negative reviews (it got a Tomatometer rating of 25% on Rotten Tomatoes), but it did make $379m at the box office (the budget at the time was $130m), and it later had a spin-off animated series.
Which brings us to the more recent version, but what do the critics think of it? Well as of May 17th, it has a Tomatometer rating of 73% on Rotten Tomatoes and a score of 62 on Metacritic. Digging deeper, these are what critics are actually saying ranked from most positive to most negative:
- Four people died in what officials are calling a terror attack after a car drove into pedestrians near Parliament in London. A suspect was also killed by police.
- Rep. Adam Schiff said there's "more than circumstantial evidence" that President Trump's campaign colluded with Russia during the election.
- Donald Trump said he feels "somewhat" vindicated after the Republican intelligence chairman in the House claimed Trump's team was surveilled.
