Japan's New Godzilla Movie Has Another Solemn, Stunning Trailer

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Shin Godzilla is just about to premiere in Japan, and so it’s time for a new trailer. Just like the first, it’s solemn, but jam-packed with a) concerned Japanese people, and b) the King of Kaiju shrugging off some pretty hefty resistance like it’s no big deal.


We still don’t know a lot about Hideki Anno and Shinji Higuchi’s movie—which will be called Godzilla: Resurgence when it hits Western shores later this year—but it’s hard to deny that these stark, dialogue-less trailers are extremely effective.

All you need to know is that Godzilla is coming, an no one is prepared to stop him. Hence all the shots of very concerned Japanese officials! You’d be concerned too, if something as freaky looking as the new Godzilla showed up to wreck shop.


Shin Godzilla hits Japanese theaters on July 29.

Darker, grittier and more realistic doesn’t always work. When I was a kid we loved Godzilla because it was a guy in a suit stomping on model buildings and people running around acting silly. Now it’s all about a giant monster that’s ruining people’s lives.
