Ladies and gentlemen, the daddy of all movie monsters is back!

Fresh from not giving two craps about the Legendary Pictures Americanization of the most famous kaiju of all time, Japanese studio Toho is going back to its roots and making a Godzilla movie featuring a dude in a rubber suit, walking at an angle that no dinosaur ever did.

Shin Gojira, to be released internationally as Godzilla Resurgence, sees a modern-day Japanese Self-Defence Force taking on the titular monster as he stomps his way through Tokyo because reasons. The traditional man-in-a-suit effects have been combined with digital compositing and lots of live action shots of modern Japanese military hardware to create a unique look to the movie. Godzilla himself looks uglier than ever, with red blood vessels (radiation channels?) running through his body and visible through the skin.

Details are being kept intentionally quiet at the moment, but the simple facts seem to be that Toho have made a monster movie for a modern audience, seemingly rebooting the series a second time to keep things fresh. Take a look at the trailer below, courtesy of our friends at Comic

The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
