#Kaiju NEWS! First poster for Godzilla Resurgence

So this just in.

Toho released their first poster for their upcoming own reboot of the Japanese Godzilla series. And it looks freaking GREAT!!

The movie was originally titled "Shin Godzilla", as in "new Godzilla", but it has apparently been renamed Godzilla Resurgence for international release. I'm fine with that.

I like the creepy bestial googly look. It's a nice throwback to the original 54 Godzilla actually, unlike the recent American reboot which was closer to the showa or heisei films with too much focus on the humans/the Mutos instead of the big G himself.

They also released a first teaser trailer, but it's a big waste of time:

Found footage, a lot of panic, but no Godzilla himself.

For reminder the movie is co-directed by Hideaki Anno (creator of Evangelion!!) and Shinji Higuchi (the man behind the fantastic 1990s Gamera trilogy), and it will be out on July 29, 2016 in Japan.
