The giant monster who wrecked havoc in Japan is coming to US--Toho's latest epic, "Shin Godzilla," also known as "Godzilla: Resurgence" is slated for US release this October,  according to reports.

Earning 5.3 billion yen (about US$51.63 million) in its first day in Japan, the new "Shin Godzilla" film directed by Shinji Higuchi and written by Hideaki Anno,received positive reviews.

Since its first appearance in 1954, Godzilla has been remade in 29 movies, and tons of comics, games and television series which garnered diverse reactions from fans. However "Shin Godzilla" has been receiving praise (for now) even with its CGI effects.

Funimation has yet to confirm the release date and the list of theaters that will screen the film but fans are already abuzz in the social movie about the film. Speculations are, it is slated for release on October 11.


In modern day Japan, unexplained tremors and seismic events occurred on the coasts and a gigantic monster, Godzilla, appeared--destroying Japan into a wasteland. The combined forces of the Japanese and American armies cannot even put a little damage on Godzilla

Eventually the Prime minister and his cabinet were killed, another prime minister was put to power but he was under the control of the United Nations. The UN is planning to drop an atomic bomb to kill Godzilla but the plan was met with oppositions (well, it will not only destroy Godzilla but also Japan together with it).

Including to those who opposed are the  Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Rando Yaguchi (Hiroki Hasegawa) who was the first one to suspect that the tremors were caused by giant creature and Hideki Akasaka (Yutaka Takenouchi), the former prime ministers aide. They both believed that there is a less destructive way to kill Godzilla.

After depleting his energy Godzilla becomes immobile, Yamaguchi's team theorized a coagulant that can freeze Godzilla's circulatory system and they have to race with the UN (who doesn't trust their idea by the way) to destroy Godzilla before an atomic bomb is launched to Japan.
