In the wake of Shin Godzilla’s arrival in Japan, there’s been swirling rumors of a new Godzilla anime on the horizon—which would, surprisingly, be the King of Kaiju’s first ever anime series. Now they’ve been validated, although it’s not quite an anime series—instead a new animated Godzilla film is coming out next…
The computer graphics in Godzilla Resurgence are quite good. Let’s see how they all came together.
Clocking in at 118.5 meters tall, the latest incarnation of the king of kaiju seen in Shin Godzilla is the largest version ever seen on screen—even coming in above legendary’s monstrous take on Big G in 2014. But the very first Godzilla was less than half that size... and that wouldn’t help him much in modern Japan.
The ‘Zilla that appears in Godzilla Resurgence is the tallest one to date. But how does it stack up to the other Godzilla from over the years? This is how.
It’s been two years since the world got a new Godzilla film. That was a Hollywood movie. This is not. Godzilla Resurgence is the first Japanese ‘Zilla film since 2004's Godzilla: Final Wars. I saw that here in Japan at the theater, so it’s only fitting I do the same for Resurgence.
The new Godzilla film, Shin Godzilla, is just a week away from release in Japan—and now it’s on its way to America, too. As revealed at the Comic-Con panel,
Shin Godzilla is just about to premiere in Japan, and so it’s time for a new trailer. Just like the first, it’s solemn, but jam-packed with a) concerned Japanese people, and b) the King of Kaiju shrugging off some pretty hefty resistance like it’s no big deal.
Sure, we might have seen Shin Godzilla in action already, but even then, we didn’t actually know all that much about the King of the Monsters’ latest film. But now the first few details about Japan’s newest Godzilla film have arrived, including the fact that it’s a full reboot of the kaiju franchise.
The one thing that stands out about the new King of the Monsters on display in Shin Godzilla is how goddamn weird it looks. It’s recognisably Godzilla, but all gnarled and messed up in a way that looks quite unlike any take on Godzilla we’ve seen before. Which is why it’s always so fascinating to see, even in artwork.
Gareth Edwards had only directed one film before tackling 2014's massive Godzilla. That film got him the gig helming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and although he was expected to return for Godzilla 2, that’s no longer happening.
The Superman cartoons from the 1940s were animated with a beauty and fluidity not seen before, but they were also hugely influential outside the world of animation.
We’ve seen brief glimpses of Hideki Anno and Shinji Higuchi’s Shin Godzilla (a.k.a. Godzilla Resurgence) before, but we’ve barely seen the kaiju himself. But now new pictures of Toho’s first Godzilla film in over a decade have hit the web, giving us a look at a very gruesome King of the Monsters.
Godzilla fans know that, eventually, they’re going to see him fight King Kong in a few big budget American movies. But those are several years out. Before that, Godzilla’s creators Toho have a new movie coming out and several details have just been revealed.
It might be a while before Bucky Barnes becomes Captain America in the movies. Rachel McAdams is definitely in Doctor Strange. Plus, set footage from Toho’s new Godzilla film, another look at Merida in Once Upon A Time, and a new clip from Fear The Walking Dead. Spoilers!
Fans of giant monster movies are going to get their dream rematch in the next few years. The upcoming King Kong movie is switching studios so that, eventually, King Kong can fight Godzilla in a massive, big screen showdown.
Of all Kaiju, it’s only natural that Godzilla gets the premiere treatment. After all, he’s the most famous, and has long held the title of “King of Kaiju”. That royalty now extends to Funko’s ever-expanding line of vinyl toys, as Godzilla’s is pretty damn fantastic.
Who wouldn’t want to see the King of the Monsters, bursting out of the water and screeching on their wall, every single day? We all would, and that’s what these brand new Godzilla posters by artist Laurent Durieux will do, if you can snag one.
Guillermo Del Toro wants to move Pacific Rim from kaiju homage to straight-up kaiju canon. Good luck with that.
By the time U.S. audiences see Godzilla back on the big screen, it’ll have been four years since the mega monster terrorized (and then saved) the world. The sequel is still happening, though, and even though it’s a long way away, the film’s writer has a minor update on the development.
