The newest Godzilla epic, Shin Godzilla, has already been out in Japan for over a month, but it’s coming to the states for a weeklong limited release in October.
The kaiju film, formerly called Godzilla Resurgence (the name was changed at Toho’s request), hits 440 North American theaters on Oct. 11 and will stay through Oct. 18. According to Funimation, it will play in its original Japanese with English subtitles.
Kotaku reviewed the latest Godzilla flick last month, with mixed (mostly lackluster) reception. Still, the flick is undeniably impressive, with amazing special effects and the tallest Godzilla to date. It’s also the top-grossing live-action movie in Japan so far this year, bringing in more than 5-billion yen ($50-million) since its release at the end of July.
American audiences are also getting ready to see the big lizard continue his rampage after the 2014 Godzilla reboot. He’ll take on the king of the apes in Legendary Pictures’ upcoming monster battle Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020. Of course, first we have to see the latest reboot of King Kong’s origin story in Kong: Skull Island, which comes out March 17, 2017, as well as Godzilla 2 in 2019.
