Godzilla: Resurgence

Time to meet Japan's new Godzilla. The second brief teaser trailer has just debuted online for Godzilla: Resurgence, the new Godzilla movie from Toho Company directed by Hideaki Anno & Shinji Higuchi. We featured the first 30-second teaser for this late last year and it didn't really show much of the big lizard monster, but this time they're not holding back revealing him entirely. The look of this Godzilla still has that kind-of-cheesy man-in-suit feeling, but that seems to be on purpose. He's still extremely huge and still very violent, but looks completely different from Hollywood's Godzilla monster. If you're curious - check this out.

Second teaser trailer for Hideaki Anno & Shinji Higuchi's Godzilla: Resurgence, direct from YouTube:

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.

    Those cute widdle baby arms!!
    • Not exactly cute. But in addition to those short, shriveled arms, lengthened tail and glowing-red, angry internal reaction, something is definitely wrong with the big G. Also, that tail swipe scene is lifted right out of Edwards' movie. That's not a bad thing.

    I have to applaud gareth edwards' Godzilla for staying true to the original godzilla while appealing to modern day sensibilities. But damn those Japanese are keeping it OG.
    • your the only one Jon! :)

        Haters gonna hate
  • I'm extremely happy that we will have BOTH big G franchises going. Very much looking forward to this film keeping the Toho sensibilities alive...including the man-in-suit tradition.'s how we all got to know and love Godzilla

    HAHA This trailer had as much Godzilla as the shitty Edwards vehicle.
  • bumboclot
    So much praise for this trailer but all I see is Godzilla vs military. Is this a straight up remake of 1954 Godzilla? No other monsters? Not sure I really want to see the military try to kill Godzilla after all these years. Been there done that.

    I'm looking forward to this! But I keep wondering why they keep making Godzilla bigger and bigger... I think it would be scarier if he was back to his original size, more personal.
