     September 10, 2016


Shin Gojira, a.k.a. Godzilla: Resurgence here in the States, will be storming American shores in just about one month. To celebrate that fact, a new U.S. trailer has been released for the homage from writer Hideaki Anno (the creator of Neon Genesis Evangelion), who co-directs with Shinji Higuchi of the live-action Attack on Titan movies.

This limited theatrical event will be in theaters from October 11th-18th only, in Japanese with English subtitles. Be sure to check Funimation’s theater locator for more on how you can purchase your tickets. Be warned: Godzilla will shriek at top volume when you click that link.

Here’s the film’s official synopsis:

Make way for the ultimate homage to one of the most enduring legends of the big screen—Godzilla! The King of the Monsters is back in Tokyo for a city-crushing crusade that speaks to the very roots of the world-renowned franchise.


It’s a peaceful day in Japan when a strange fountain of water erupts in the bay, causing panic to spread among government officials. At first, they suspect only volcanic activity, but one young executive dares to wonder if it may be something different… something alive. His worst nightmare comes to life when a massive, gilled monster emerges from the deep and begins tearing through the city, leaving nothing but destruction in its wake. As the government scrambles to save the citizens, a rag-tag team of volunteers cuts through a web of red tape to uncover the monster’s weakness and its mysterious ties to a foreign superpower. But time is not on their side—the greatest catastrophe to ever befall the world is about to evolve right before their very eyes.
