Godzilla: Monster Planet Trailer 2
The second movie trailer for Godzilla: Monster Planet (2017) from The Toho Company.
As far as Japanese cultural exports go, it’s hard to think of anything bigger than anime and Godzilla. Indeed, both enjoy the devotion of legions of fans in the West, many of whom sought them out before the Internet made accessing them easy. So it’s a bit of a surprise that we haven’t really seen a combination of the two that approaches the scale of Godzilla: Monster Planet.
The first Godzilla film to be rendered entirely through animation, the trailer is a major deviation from the rest of the franchise. Bearing the distinctly angular look of anime, Monster Planet’s animation also has a depth to it that makes the CG-elements of it apparent. This is a far cry from the suitmation that the series is so known for, but it’s not necessarily bad.
Although the trailer is in Japanese, the story is easy to gleam: driven from Earth by monsters, the surviving members of mankind return to their homeworld and encounter none other than the King of the Monsters. It’s a simple story, but the trailer cultivates a sense of intensity that makes one curious to see how it unfolds.
Hiroyuki Seshita and Kobun Shizuno‘s Godzilla: Monster Planet (2017) also stars Momaru Miyano, Yuki Kaji, Daisuke Ono, Kana Hanazawa, Takahiro Sakurai, Kenta Miyake, Tomokazu Sugita, Jun’ichi Suwabe, Kazuya Nakai, Ken’yu Horiuchi, and Kazuhiro Yamaji.
