Japan is plunged into chaos upon the appearance of a giant monster.

Having been dormant in his native Japan since 2004’s Godzilla: Final Wars, the King of the Monsters is back with a brand-new outing, a completely new look and a re-developed backstory and creation. Gareth Edward’s 2014 American reboot split some sections of the audience, but those craving an ‘authentic’ Japanese Godzilla movie can rejoice with the release of Shin Godzilla, which gets a short theatrical run in America today.

Co-directors Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi (best known for their work on Attack on Titan and Evangelion) make a bold statement coming into this movie by not playing with the rules set by previous instalments.
