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 MiyanoYuki Kaji, Daisuke Ono, Kana Hanazawa, Takahiro Sakurai, Kenta MiyakeTomokazu Sugita, Jun’ichi Suwabe, Kazuya Nakai, Ken’yu Horiuchi, and Kazuhiro Yamaji.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
