To say Hideaki Anno had a lot to accomplish with Shin Godzilla might be the biggest understatement of the year. Making the first Japanese Godzilla film in more than a decade is a pretty tall order on its own. But this one also had to mend Toho’s pride after getting Out-Godzilla-ed by Americans in 2014. I’m pleased to say that I think Anno successfully fulfilled this tall order, but how he went about doing it is what I think is truly amazing.

Back in July we found out Toho’s latest Godzilla film, Shin Godzilla, would get a limited run in American theaters thanks to Funimation. Well, we now have a trailer for that release… and it sure is a trailer.

Shin Godzilla will appear in American theaters from October 11-18.
This past weekend at Comic Con was filled with more than just new trailers, we also finally got information on an American release for Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi’s Shin Gojira (Godzilla Resurgence) After a long wait, we finally can confirm (as of last Friday) that Funimation has picked up the rights for the US distribution of the film and are going to be bringing it to American theaters.
Its probably safe to assume that, much like the recent Dragonball Z and the live actionAttack on Titan Films, this film will have a limited US theatrical release, but frankly, I couldn’t be more excited. Most of the Millenium Godzilla movies were not given a US theatrical release, so the chance to see Japanese Godzilla on the big screen once more is incredibly exciting!
