The King of the Monsters will wreak havoc in post-war Japan in Toho’s highly anticipated live-action Godzilla feature, Godzilla Minus One – and the feature’s new trailer showcases some of the most stunning images we’ve seen of the legendary beast .
Godzilla Minus One is the first domestic Japanese film in the Godzilla franchise since 2016’s Shin Godzilla, and tells the story of an already devastated post-war Japan that faces a new threat. “Will the devastated humans be able to survive…let alone fight back?” The trailer teases.
The film was written and directed by Takashi Yamazaki.
Toho has also released new key visuals for the film, which you can see below.
Godzilla made his debut in the 1954 film “Gojira” directed by Ishirō Honda. Since then, Godzilla has appeared in 29 films by the famous Japanese studio Toho. At the height of its popularity, Toho released a Godzilla film nearly every year from 1964 to 1975, portraying the creature as both a destructive force of nature and at times defender of humanity against other monsters.
Godzilla Minus One is slated to premiere on November 3rd in Japan and December 1st nationwide in the United States.
Meanwhile, back on the home front, Warner Bros. Discovery has also announced the release of Godzilla x Kong: The Lost Empire, which has been pushed back to April 12, 2024 due to the double strikes by SAG-AFTRA and WGA.
