Not one, but two new trailers for Godzilla Resurgence aka Shin Gojira was released today by Toho Studios revealing a new and horrific look to the king of the monsters – Godzilla. Showing no resemblance whatsoever to a previous incarnations except for the original Shodai Gojira from the film Gojira which debuted in Japan on November 3rd 1954. At a record 108 meters tall with short arms, multiple rows of dorsal fins and an extremely long tail making this Godzilla the tallest yet of any incarnation. This is Toho’s first Godzilla film in 12 years since 2004’s Final Wars and is the studios own reboot of the franchise to rival the success of Legendary Picture’s Godzilla film. This Godzilla design gets two super thumbs up from me. Sure with his short arms he cannot swing and bat planes and helicopters away but I am sure he has more than just a beam weapon.
The trailer shows us a Nightmarish looking Godzilla strolling among the suburbs and cities of Japan. He is shown to be emitting a meltdown type look much like the Heisei Godzilla from the film Godzilla vs. Destroyah. Also unclear if this is one of many forms the creature may have. Will he go through a metamorphosis into something more terrifying as he gets pelted with modern day weapons? As far as we know there is no kaiju opponent for the King to do combat with. Now for his 60th anniversary Godzilla\Gojira once again emerges to inflict horror and destruction upon a terrified Japan. Here is the new trailer which runs at 1:32.
