We received our first look at the star of Netflix’s upcoming Godzilla: Singular Point a couple of weeks ago, and determined his newest design to be both winning and thigh-ful. However, it turns out the King of the Monsters had another hidden surprise—or, er, several thousand surprises, all located in his mouth.

Because my goodness, that’s a lot of teeth.

This stunning exposé comes to us thanks to a new Japanese poster for Singular Point, which really channels the kinetic energy the show seems to be going for (note Jet Jaguar, who could be considered dentally gifted himself, sort of tucked into the upper-left corner). It also has the number “69" written on it a lot—about which the less said the better, most likely.

Those chompers, though...hoo boy. I don’t have any issue with Godzilla having multiple rows of teeth like a shark, although it’s certainly a unique design decision for the Big G. It’s those two fangs that seem to just be hanging out on his cheeks that really have me perplexed, especially since they were kind of hard to see in the original reveal. Here, they’re...well, in your face.

Maybe they’ll look less jarring in motion, whenever Singular Point arrives on Netflix in the U.S. Since it’s hitting Japan on March 25, we probably won’t have too long to wait and see for ourselves.

Just looking at the poster, it seems to be a remake of Inception with the folding cities, but with Godzilla, which honestly is a lot closer to what my dreams are like than nice hotels or ski chalets with armed guards.

Just add in a few demons, a clown, and spiders and I think you’ve captured the essence of my subconscious.
