This is shaping up to be Trailer Week, which I have no quarrel with. I love me some trailers. The latest out of the gate stars Japan’s biggest movie monster: Godzilla. After a brief teaser last December, we’re finally given a look at the latest version of the famous titan. Officially titled Godzilla: Resurgence, this is Toho’s 29th film in the series and the first produced since 2004’s Godzilla: Final Wars.
In a move that may come as a surprise, this latest incarnation of Godzilla will be a combination of CGI and traditional special effects techniques used for decades by Toho (read: man-in-suit). Regardless of how it’s brought to life, the new design is a nice throwback to the original 1954 version with a dash of modern menace. So many pointy teeth…
Godzilla will stomp his way into Japanese theaters on July 29th. There’s no word on a US release just yet, but the aforementioned Final Wars had a brief run stateside, so there’s hope for US kaiju fans.
Give it a look and let’s talk about the new Godzilla: Resurgence trailer.
