Not content with storming the box office in Japan, where it debuted at #1, the King Of Kaijus is set to stomp through theaters Stateside next month.
The hugely-anticipated Godzilla Resurgence (AKA Shin Godzilla) is ready to tear the US to shreds in October–and we’ve finally got a trailer for it, which you can check out right after the jump.
Funimation Films announced they’d acquired the movie for US distribution at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. The flick will be storming into more than 440 theaters, across the US and Canada, for a short theatrical run from October 11th-18th.
The plot synopsis for Godzilla Resurgence is tantalisingly mysterious, much like the creature at the heart of it:
After a mysterious accident occurs in the tunnels of the Tokyo Bay Aqua Line, Japan’s emergency cabinet convenes to find the cause and a solution. Immediately afterwards, a huge creature appears, destroying town after town on a path of destruction to the nation’s capital… an unfathomable giant organism known as “Godzilla”
The movie is co-directed by Hideaki Annno (creator of the hugely-popular Evangelion) and Shinji Higuchi and stars Hiroki Hasegawa, Satomi Ishihara and Yutaka Takenouchi. Godzilla Resurgence represents the 29th movie produced by Toho that stars the King Of Kaijus.
Tickets for the theatrical run are available for purchase now via the official film site.
