Yes! Another new Godzilla movie is coming. And who better to make it than studio Toho, the same studio of the first Godzilla movie.
Although dozens of Godzilla films have been released in theaters in Japan since 1954, we in the West have been less fortunate. There was a Godzilla movie made in 1998 starring actors Matthew Broderick and Jean Reno. However, this one was somewhat disappointing.
Of course, we also got a Godzilla movie in 2014. This time with Bryan Cranston and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, among others. This is significantly better than the 1998 version, but this time too we in the west seemed to get the short end of the stick.
Godzilla Minus One is set during the American occupation of Japan, which was between 1945 and 1952. That means the film is set before the original 1954 Godzilla film.
The trailer gives little away of the story itself. What we mainly see is Godzilla, who turns a Japanese city into his playground. The images are gruesome to watch, but one thing immediately stands out. It is clearly visible that the rubber suits have been exchanged for computer animation. Everyone has to discover for themselves whether this benefits the film.
Running from December 1st Godzilla Minus One in Dutch cinemas.
