WATCH: Toho brings Godzilla back in incredible trailer for Godzilla Minus One

November 4th, 2023 by Marc Comments

Original Godzilla creators Toho in Japan are back to a new movie to rival the popularity of the Monsterverse and honestly, it looks like it’s going to do just that!

Godzilla Minus One takes the story back to the beginning to a Japan ravaged by war and about to be trampled on by the king of the monsters, Godzilla and it looks amazing. And brutal. And scary. This Godzilla is – at least not yet – no friend to humans and that’s just fine by us here at FTN HQ.

WATCH: Posters and full trailer for Monarch: Legacy of Monsters are here!

“Set in a post-war Japan, Godzilla Minus One will once again show us a Godzilla that is a terrifying and overwhelming force, which you already get a sense of from the teaser trailer and poster,” said Koji Ueda, President of Toho International, at New York comic Con a few weeks back, “The concept is that Japan, which had already been devastated by the war, faces a new threat with Godzilla, bringing the country into the ‘minus.’”

The new film is written and directed and written by Takashi Yamazaki and hits cinemas on December 1st.

He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
