Did you like the 2014 American adaptation of Godzilla by Gareth Edwards for Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures? Well, great. Now's time for the first Japanese-made Godzilla film by Toho in over a decade!
This new film Shin Godzilla/aka Godzilla Resurgence will be a collaboration between Neon Genesis Evangelion creator Hideki Anno and Shinji Higuchi Japanese FX legend who's responsible for the fantastic 1990s Gamera Trilogy and Mothra & King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack in 2001. And here's the first proper trailer:
The film appears to have a strange blend of retro-classic costume Godzilla mixed with modern touches of special effects. It actually looks exactly like I imagined a collab between Anno and Shinji Higuchi would look like.
And it also has a fairly strange sinister vibe to it. The way this Godzilla looks so monstrous, slowly walking like this without flinching. Doesn't it remind you of the Angels attacks in EVA??
