First Teaser Trailer + Poster for Japan's 'Godzilla: Resurgence' Movie
Run! Godzilla is back, again!! In addition to everything going on with Godzilla in Hollywood, Japan is currently working on their own new Godzilla movie titled Godzilla: Resurgence, co-directed by Hideaki Anno & Shinji Higuchi, who were announced earlier this year. An early teaser has apparently hit the web via our friends at The Film Stage, and it shows just a tiny glimpse of found footage of people running and screaming, similar to Cloverfield. At the end there isn't any shot of the big guy yet, but there is a sound of his roar and a cut to the title. I wish there was more but at least we have a very interesting poster. See below.
First teaser trailer for Hideaki Anno & Shinji Higuchi's Godzilla: Resurgence, found via The Film Stage:
It was originally reported that Toho Company is working on a new Godzilla movie of their own (separate from Gareth Edwards' most recent Hollywood version and the impending Godzilla vs King Kong fight) and it began shooting in the summer, for release in 2016. Adding to that, this most recent report says that the story will take place in Japan (of course), and that it will be the "largest Godzilla ever" and he would be destroying cities all over Japan. Godzilla: Resurgence is being co-directed by Japanese filmmaking legends Hideaki Anno (Neon Genesis Evangelion) and Shinji Higuchi (known for his visual effects for the Gamera trilogy). The screenplay is credited to Hideaki Anno. According to the poster above, Godzilla: Resurgence arrives in theaters in Japan starting July 29th, 2016 next year. We're not sure of an exact US release date.
