Godzilla: Resurgence Will Be A Reboot

Japan will get their first taste of the
King of Monsters in Godzilla Resurgence
Toho has made it official: Godzilla: Resurgence will be a reboot. It will not be a sequel to any previous Godzilla films. The upcoming film will tell “…a story in which Godzilla appears in Japan for the first time.“ That means the actors can’t reference old Godzilla movies, like the 1954 classic that started it all.

This will be the third time in the Godzilla franchise that the creature has attacked Japan “for the first time.” The monster had an origin story in Godzilla 2000.

Shin-Gojira, as the iconic creature’s film will be titled in Japan, is going to be the largest Godzilla in record.

The cast includes Hiroki Hasegawa, Yutaka Takenouchi, Satomi Ishihara, Rando Yaguchi, and Ren Osugi. 
Godzilla: Resurgence will hit theaters in Japan on July 29th. 

"Japan vs. Godzilla," round one. The official theatrical trailer for Godzilla Resurgence shows a nation preparing for attack, as the strings of the soundtrack swell into an emotional theme that evokes the national pride and mourning of recent all-too-real terroristic attacks.

Godzilla Resurgence, which will be called Shin Gojira in Japan, is directed by Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi.

The Godzilla design was created by Mahiro Maeda (Mad Max: Fury Road, The Animatrix) and Takayuki Takeya (Kamen Rider Drive, Attack on Titan). The based the designs on the concepts by Maeda and Anno.
 
Godzilla Resurgance stars Hiroki Hasegawa (Attack on Titan), Yutaka Takenouchi (Hoshi no Kinka) and Satomi Ishihara (Attack on Titan, Pokémon the Movie).

Godzilla isn’t quite ready for his close-up, but he’s showing off a toothy grin in the latest leaked photos from the set of Toho’s upcoming Godzilla Resurgence movie.

Low resolution images of private photos that were taken at Toho Studios were uploaded to Twitter and Facebook this morning. The shots feature the "monster suit" at the center of the new Godzilla movie. 
Toho released their first teaser trailer for Godzilla: Resurgence in October.

Don’t panic. Tokyo id experiencing Godzilla-related turbulence. News footage shows the population running for their lives. But this is not a terror attack and it is not a drill. It is the new trailer for the upcoming film Godzilla: Resurgence from Toho. The new trailer doesn't show the oversized kimono dragon, but we hear it.

The upcoming Godzilla: Resurgence will be the first Godzilla film by Toho since 2004's Godzilla: Final Wars. That movie wasn’t final enough. What started as a science fiction allegory of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki has become an unstoppable cinematic force.
Toho also released the first poster for the upcoming thriller.
Besides the teaser trailer and the poster, Japanese rock band Katokutai also uploaded what looks like an offiical music video for the new Godzilla movie to their YouTube page. The poster imagines Katokutai as oversized mutant rockers treating the city like their own personal concert stage. 

Godzilla Resurgence is co-directed by the screenwriter, Hideaki Anno, who made Evangelion, and Shinji Higuchi, who brought us Attack on Titan, who helmed the special effects.

Production on the 29th Godzilla movie took place over the summer.

Toho will unleash Godzilla: Resurgence on theaters on July 29, 2016.
