Godzilla Resurgence

Funimation Films reveals when Godzilla Resurgence will be released in American theaters. The company says that the kaiju film will have a limited run in the US from October 11th to 18th.

Known as in Shin Godzilla in its original Japanese, tickets will be sold in advance for the film on it’s official website. Some 440 theaters in the US and Canada are expected to screen the movie when it sees release.

Although the film was produced by Toho Company, Funimation won the rights to distribute the film in North America after reaching a deal with the creators of the radioactive lizard:

“We are thrilled to bring ‘Shin Godzilla’ to theaters across North America this October,” said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and President of Funimation. “Toho established Godzilla as one of the most iconic monsters in science fiction history and we’re honored to now be a part of that history with the theatrical release of this new movie. Fans will not want to miss this limited theatrical event.”

Co-directed by Hideaki Anno (creator of “Evangelion”) and Shinji Higuchi (director of Toho’s 2015 Attack on Titan live action movies), Shin Godzilla is the 29th Godzilla film produced by Toho and represents a brand new chapter in the 62-year history of this celebrated movie monster. The film stars Hiroki Hasegawa and Satomi Ishihara – both also from the Attack on Titan live action movies – as well as Yutaka Takenouchi .

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.
