Godzilla Resurgence

Holy crap this looks awesome! The third official full-length trailer has debuted for Godzilla: Resurgence, the new Godzilla movie from Toho Company in Japan, co-directed by Hideaki Anno & Shinji Higuchi. We've been posting teasers for this before, but with the film opening in Japanese theaters in just a few weeks, they're finally unleashing the full trailer and it's kind of incredible. There are some seriously badass shots in this, and it looks impressive to see Godzilla standing so tall in the middle of the city. I can't tell if it's actually man-in-suit or CGI or a mix of both, and you know what, it doesn't even matter because it just looks freakin' cool as all hell. The cast includes Jun Kunimura, Shin'ya Tsukamoto, Satomi Ishihara and Hiroki Hasegawa. Whether you're a Godzilla fan or not, you do not want to miss this! Watch below.

Here's the third official trailer for Hideaki Anno & Shinji Higuchi's Godzilla: Resurgence, from YouTube:

You can still see the first two teaser trailers for Godzilla: Resurgence here + here, to see even more footage.

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 last summer, for release July 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 original poster, Godzilla: Resurgence arrives in theaters in Japan starting July 29th this summer. We're still not sure of an exact US release date.

    Well, it's Japanese legend. How can they leave it to Americans to make it? Hardly. Five points for all hard work invested in it ...

    I thought that looked pretty poor. A static Godzilla with t-rex arms and a tail like a snake.

    If this exact trailer came out of America you'd say this looked pants. I think you're a little too enamoured in the foreign-movie-ness of it, Alex.
    • Nah, I think it looks cool. I get what they're going for, it's not meant to be a slick CGI lizard monster, it's meant to be man-in-suit updated for 2016.

    Sorry, I don't know about the actual film, which could be great, but this trailer is absolutely terrible. Godzilla just kind of stands there. The helicopters and tanks look like they're on a big training exercise. The cast just stand around in offices, conference rooms or control centres looking like... well, nothing all that bad is happening, basically. Occasionally someone looks a bit perturbed. It's really pretty poor stuff.
  • Looks terrible. I like the image of Gozilla in the title frame of the video though.
  • SkyNet300
    This looks like dated crap. Time to update guys!

    I'm blown away people aren't all over this. I'm an old school fan (read: OLD). This looks absolutely awesome to me. I'll see this the moment I can!
