Like I said to kick off this article, my excitement for King of the Monsters is quickly growing. Bobby Brown, Chandler, and Farmiga make for a formidable trio, and I can't imagine this cast getting much better. Farmiga is an especially important addition for this film. She's all kinds of underrated and brilliant in James Wan's Conjuring films, and she also did great work in Source Code and Martin Scorsese's The Departed. However, the cast is only one piece of the puzzle. This seems like a fairly obvious thing to say, but King of the Monsters will not work without a good script from Dougherty, Max Borenstein, and Zach Shields. Remember- the first film had a pretty great cast too. Who wasn't excited to see a Godzilla film with Bryan Cranston? But in the end, Borenstein's screenplay was a disappointment and Gareth Edwards' direction was a letdown. Time will tell if King of the Monsters can succeed where Godzilla failed.
