Godzilla is coming back! No not the Americanized version of the legendary radioactive kaiju. The good old fashioned “man in suit” that has been knocking ‘em down in Japan and the US for more than 60 years. Sure, we got a little spoiled with the latest US version of the big guy in Gareth Edwards’ 2014 Godzilla film. However, Toho is also bringing the big gut back to theaters with the latest Godzilla film, Shin Godzilla. This will be the 31st Godzilla film and the 29th under the Toho. This film Godzilla won’t be the traditional “man in suit” but will be done with motion capture. The film was already released in Japan to positive reviews, and it looks like we in America will get to see the film in theaters.

The popularity of the American Godzilla film has once yet again reignited fandom for the legendary monster. While Shin Godzilla will have nothing to do with the American film (or the planned Godzilla/King Kong mashup in 2020), it will still be released in US theaters with a limited release from October 11th to 18th. Toho has released a US Trailer for the upcoming film.


While the trailer doesn’t show much of Godzilla, it does show the chaos he makes. Following many other Godzilla films, this one seems to be him versus the Japanese military, so don’t expect any monster-on-monster battles.
