A new trailer has been released for Godzilla Resurgence, the latest in the long-running kaiju series produced and distributed by its original creator, Toho.
The movie is the 31st Godzilla movie overall, and the 29th from Toho. The other two were the 1998 and 2014 Hollywood productions. It is Toho’s first new entry in the series in 12 years (the last being Godzilla: Final Wars in 2004) and, much like the aforementioned 2014 American movie, acts as a reboot of the franchise. Toho saw how successful the Hollywood effort was—which has led to the development of a shared monster universe including the planned movies Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla 2, and the ultimate big bad beastie showdown, Godzilla vs. King Kong—and made the excellent decision to do their own reboot. There’s no such thing as too many monster movies.
