Japan's New Godzilla Movie Looks Awesome

For the first time in over a decade, there’s a new Godzilla movie coming from Japan’s Toho Studios. This one’s being directed by none other than Neon Genesis’ Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi.


There was a short trailer released for Godzilla Resurgence last year, but this is our first proper look at the movie, and holy shit does it look good. It’s fitting that, for a series born out of the fear of nuclear war, this latest film instead looks to the recent Tsunami for visual cues.

So I guess it’s no coincidence that the gif up there made me think of the (pitifully ineffective) conventional weapons bombardment of Sachiel in the first episode of NGE. It’s really rather memetic.
