The New Trailer For ‘Godzilla: Monster Planet’ Looks Pretty Damned Amazing

I’m just going to be honest here — Godzilla: Monster Planet‘s new trailer looks plain amazing. We got our first tease of the film last month, but now we have a much better look at the film, and I couldn’t be more excited.

The premise is simple — monsters have taken over the earth. Humanity tried to find a new home, but was unable to find a suitable new planet to live on… so they have to go back and actually deal with Godzilla. The film was first announced back in the spring, and it’s just super neat looking.

Godzilla: Monster Planet comes to theaters in Japan this November, followed by an international release on Netflix.

The First Trailer for ‘Godzilla: Monster Planet’ Is Pretty Neat

Back in March it was announced that an original animated Godzilla movie was coming to theaters in Japan and Netlix internationally. A few weeks later, we got some basic plot details and the title of the film — Godzilla: Monster Planet.

And now we have a trailer.

Well, I say “trailer,” but it’s really just a brief thirty second spot. In any case though, it’s our first look at the animated film. What we can see here is pretty great though, so I’m excited about it the movie at least.

All the Details About Netflix’s Animated Godzilla Film So Far

A couple of weeks ago it was announced that Netflix would be the world wide distributor for a new Godzilla Anime film. Initially details were pretty scarce, but since then new information has trickled out about the film. To help you sort through it, we’ve collected as much as we can and put it all here in one place.

To start with, as we previously reported, Polygon Pictures making the film for Toho. The movie will get a limited Japanese theatrical run, and will be distributed by Netflix globally. Gen Urobuchi is writing the script, with Hiroyuki Seshita and Kôbun Shizuno co-directing the film.

As for new information, for starters there’s now an official synopsis of the film (now titled Godzilla: Monster Planet). /Film has an English translation of it: Continue reading All the Details About Netflix’s Animated Godzilla Film So Far

A Godzilla Anime Film Is Coming to Netflix Later This Year

So Godzilla is just all over the place. With literally two Godzilla film franchises happening at the same time, the big guy is seemingly all over the place. I mean Toho’s Shin Godzilla in 2016 was amazing, and the follow up to Legendary’s 2014 revival has two sequels green lit. The king of monsters is pretty much everywhere.

And he’s about to show up in animated form too.

Japanese animation company Polygon Pictures is working on an animated Godzilla film for Toho which will get a limited theatrical run, and will be distributed by Netflix globally. Gen Urobuchi is writing the script, with Hiroyuki Seshita and Kôbun Shizuno co-directing the film.

The best part? The film, just titled Godzilla, is expected later this year.

Honestly, I’m pretty excited about this. I mean, yeah — calling it just Godzilla is going to make writing or talking about it complicated, but it’s another Godzilla movie. I think most of us want as many versions of the big guy on our screens as we can get.

Episode 84 – Just Under The Wire

On this episode of Nerd & Tie, we talk about the SAG-AFTRA strike against the biggest video game companies out there, Tim Miller exiting Deadpool 2, Donald Glover getting cast as Lando Calrissian in the Han Solo anthology film, we let Nick talk about Shin Godzilla, Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 gets a teaser, Logan gets a trailer, and Pher and Nick went to some conventions.

There’s a lot packed into this one.

‘Shin Godzilla’ Gets a US Trailer

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.

Don’t expect to see anything new, or to hear any dialogue (as the release will have subtitles that probably aren’t perfected yet), but here it is… all trailer like.

Shin Godzilla will appear in American theaters from October 11-18.

The First Full Trailer For ‘Godzilla Resurgence’ Is Here

While we really liked Legendary’s Godzilla, there are some who are only willing to accept the most famous Kaiju in the world if he’s played by a guy in a rubber suit. And hey, who can blame them? Original formula Godzilla is pretty friggin’ cool.

Toho, of course, has been completely on top of this, announcing Godzilla Resurgence (aka Shin Godzilla) about a year and a half ago. We got the first teaser for the Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi co-directed film in December, but it really didn’t tell anyone much about the film.

Now though… now we have the full trailer.

Of course, it still doesn’t tell us that much about the actual movie — but at least it establishes the look for the audience. Frankly, if the trailer is anything to go on, this may be the most visually interesting Toho produced Godzilla film in decades.

No word on when we’ll see an English language release, but Godzilla Resurgence hits theaters in Japan on July 29, 2016.

Episode 64 – No Ending in Sight

On this episode of Nerd & Tie, we tackle Toho’s new Godzilla design, CBS is suing the creators of Star Trek fan film Axanar, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is crushing it at the box office, Hasbro can’t get things right with Rey, and No Boys Dorm just kind of kicks ass.

You should totally watch it.

Toho Releases Teaser, Posters for “Godzilla: Resurgence”

With the success of Legendary’s 2014 American reboot of the Godzilla franchise, Toho was fast to jump back into the world of producing their own Godzilla films after taking a break for a decade. We first learned about their new iteration a year ago, and last spring we found out Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi would co-direct the film. Time marches on though, and we finally have a few more breadcrumbs about the project.

Well, we have a poster and what can barely be called a teaser trailer.

Toho released two versions of the poster for the film — one in Japanese and one in English.

Godzilla-Resurgence Godzilla-Resurgence-English

The “teaser” put out for the film is pretty straight forward — people running from something. One presumes it’s Godzilla they’re running from, but since we don’t actually see it, we’ll just have to guess.

As marketing goes, it’s pretty simple – but I’m still excited. I mean, the more Godzilla we get to see, the better. I don’t expect it to look as good as the Legendary films, but I think it’ll make up for it with (probably) a better plot.

Maybe.

No word on when we’ll see an English language release, but Godzilla: Resurgence hits theaters in Japan on July 29, 2016.

Episode 58 – Bigger Than Ever

This episode of Nerd & Tie is sadly just Pher and Trae, as Nick couldn’t make it back in time from Anime Fusion to record the show. Left to their own devices, the remaining Nerds (and Ties) dig into yesterday’s all too tragic ZombiCon shooting, try to distract themselves with the new Gamera trailer, rejoices at Godzilla vs. King Kong‘s confirmation, ogle the overly detailed Man of Steel’s “Fortress of Solitude” drawn by Frank Miller, get amazed by the return of Starhunter, and recount Pher’s experiences at Anime Fusion.

Which, at the time of recording, Nick had finally left.
