Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has finally revealed the details and street date for the 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. As the third film in WB’s so-called “Monster-verse,” it became a slight disappointment compared to its predecessor, both financially and critically. It’s not that the film itself was bad, it’s just that it managed to feel mostly like filler for the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong. Despite this, the pedigree involved makes it worth giving it a shot. Now, Godzilla: King of the Monsters is stomping its way onto 4K Blu-ray with an exciting release in August!
