Toho to release new Japanese Godzilla

Posted in The Screening Room by - December 08, 2014

Fear not fans of original Japanese Godzilla, there will be a new film next within the next year.

The time has come for Japan to make a film that will not lose to Hollywood, this is very good timing after the success of the American version this year: if not now, then when? The licensing contract we have with Legendary places no restrictions on us making domestic versions.

As a fan of the original Godzilla films, I am beyond excited to see the first Godzilla film out of since Godzilla: Final Wars in 2004. Not only was Final Wars a interesting take on the Godzilla canon, it also had the Japanese Godzilla kill off the American Godzilla from the 1998 film. It’s a big fuck you to the horror and sorrow that was the first American Godzilla film, with ice-skating baby Godzillas and a pregnant Godzilla. We will report more as we get news on the new Japanese Godzilla films.
