“We should have spent less time playing Pokemon GO and more time preparing for Godzilla” – Japan.
[dropcap size=small]F[/dropcap]or the first time in twelve years Japan has released a film centered around their favorite dinosaur of destruction. The film will be released in Japan under the title of Shin Godzilla but the title for the film will change to Godzilla: Resurgence when it hits theaters here in the United States. The trailer shows Godzilla stomping around Japan looking like he has a terrible case of third-degree sunburn and Japanese government officials looking on completely helpless. Check out the trailer below.
Godzilla: Resurgence is being directed by Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi, two very talented and highly praised directors, so there are high expectations for the film. Executive producer Akihiro Yamauchi claims Godzilla: Resurgence is “the largest-scale Japanese movie ever made.” Taking a gander at how popular and well-received Godzilla: Resurgence will be is hard to do right now, but the lumbering behemoth has always been an icon of Japanese pop culture. There is more than likely a large enough audience here in the States so even if the critics find the film to be another movie about a monster pushing a nation’s population to the brink of annihilation plenty of people will certainly be attracted to the film.
Shin Godzilla hits Japanese theaters this Friday and some time later in the United States.
