Grab your hoverboard and activate your self-lacing shoes. A manga adaptation of Back to the Future is on its way to reinvent our history one page at a time. The 1985 Robert Zemeckis classic about a teenager who travels back thirty years and meets his future parents only to potentially ruin the events that lead to his own birth, is being revived in comic form, as only Murata Yuusuke can depict. The manga artist's biggest claim to fame is his highly celebrated series One-Punch Man, which itself has been adapted as an anime title of the same name. News of this first came to us during a press event for the upcoming Ready Player One, directed by Steven Spielberg, who of course was heavily involved with the Back to the Future movie series through his company Amblin Entertainment. Any avid S...
KOUJIN Trailer – Kaiju vs Samurai, Nuff Said

KOUJIN Trailer – Kaiju vs Samurai, Nuff Said

Articles, Blog, Kaiju, Movies & TV, News, Uncategorized
Giant monsters are often synonymous with toppling skyscrapers, civilians screaming as they flee through crowded streets, cars crushed, windows shattered. What we see less often are those titanic terrors in an environment less advanced than the modern age of rolling tanks and atomic bombs. Before we had the Super-X to take on the likes of Godzilla with futuristic weaponry, there were swords and primitive guns fighting the good fight against all things scaled and gnarly. That's where Koujin comes in. The kaiju film set in ancient Japan, where humanity's ability to defend itself may be a bit lacking. It's All You Can Eat Week at the Human Buffet, boys and girls. Author Miyabe Miyuki's eponymous novel about neighboring villages beset by monstrous attacks sets this NHK television film adap...

Guess who's back. Tell a friend. Those motley mutates with a penchant for separating limbs from bodies have returned for one final round, this time on the big screen. Kamen Rider Amazons, Toei Company's online streaming series reviving the slightly more violent and risque trappings of a bygone era from the far-reaching Kamen Rider franchise, is making the jump from television to film. After two successful seasons releasing episodes on Amazon Prime Japan, the transforming, bike-riding warriors will have their last battle in movie theaters this year, and here's a teaser to show them off in all their brooding glory. Loosely basing some of its aesthetic trappings on the 1974 original Kamen Rider Amazon (hold the "S"), the modern series follows the exploits of a group of operatives tasked ...

In case word hasn't traveled to your neck of the interwebs just yet, there's somehow a Detective Pikachu movie getting made. What's more amazing is that this flick, based on the popular video game and anime series Pokemon, in which "pocket monsters" battle it out for sport, is starring Ryan Reynolds. As Pikachu. The cartoon rodent-looking thing that generally doesn't say anything but repetitive variations on the syllables of his own name. Even after weeks of information slowly dripping out of the tap on this production, we're still asking if there's any way this could be a really expensive mix-up. Are we getting punk'd? Is getting punk'd still a thing? This question and many others need answering as we countdown to the release on this alleged movie. Ryan Reynolds has been acting his p...

Is it Morphin Time for the Upcoming STAR WARS?

A fun bit of trivia for fans of the Power Rangers and Star Wars action/adventure franchises today. It seems the next in line on the ever-driving train that is the Star Wars saga will have a unique title in international waters that may be of interest to those of us who enjoy the exploits of multi-colored heroes in spandex. Star Wars has never been big in China. While the original film trilogy was launched to overwhelming enthusiasm shortly after its 1970s inception, with a fervor that only seems to keep growing across the long decades as more and more material is released to add to this immense tapestry of stories, the movies never quite caught on with our neighbors. Many Star Wars features never even played in theaters there in wide release until well into the 2000s, in fact. So, whe...

It's Hammer Time. Bringing the Joe Kelly graphic novel to life in splendid form, I Kill Giants summons up a gaggle of monsters ready to ransack the small town young Barbara Thorson (as in "Son of Thor") calls home. Not if she has anything to say about it. A coming-of-age tale set against the imaginative backdrop of monsters and magic, from Danish Academy Award-winning filmmaker Anders Walter, crafting this tale from a script penned by the comic series' original writer Joe Kelly. Any dedicated comic book fan is likely to have come across Kelly's words at some point in their time as readers, as his fingerprints are all over the scene. From Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, X-Men, and Deadpool over at Marvel, to Superman's Action Comics, Wonder Woman, and Justice League of America. If it flies...

Who says the big, scary monsters always have to take the L? Special-effects action director Kawasaki Minoru disagrees, and in this comedic flick, he sets about telling the tale of a world obsessed with the fictional television heroism of Outer Man. The superhuman giant battles enormous kaiju to save the world from their uncanny evils to the wonderment of adoring tokusatsu fans everywhere, but then something extraordinary happens. Outer Man, who was only a TV character, suddenly appears in the real world. But instead of protecting mankind, he'd rather be a prick and destroy it. The actors of the Outer Man TV show must band together to fight this new menace or die trying. I guess. This wacky premise that sees the heroes transform into a monster to stop the Ultraman-esque figure from wre...

Pacific Rim: Uprising is almost upon us. The bright and sunny sequel to the dark, rain soaked Guillermo Del Toro original is set to rally the troops for an all-out brawl against the other dimensional Kaiju, who have returned to the post-war-torn world believed to have been saved from their monstrous wrath in the last installment. Just like at a top online casino, Alas, too much popcorn is on the line to say goodbye to the giant beasties and their eternal enemies, the robotic Jaegers with their shouty human pilots. Among them this time is John Boyega (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) who carries the torch after the departure of his character's father, portrayed last time by Idris Elba. Boyega leads a cast of mostly fresh faces including Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny, Jing Tian, and Adria Arjo...

The rubber red carpet has been rolled out for Ultraman these past few months. The giant monster-fighting superhero franchise has seen action on TV screens, streaming platforms, and home media everywhere, both in live-action and animated forms, with even more on the way. This includes the upcoming television premieres of Ultraman Gaia, Ultraman Ginga, and Ultraman Ginga S. This, of course, comes to us courtesy of TOKU, the Olympusat Inc. TV station branded by its affinity for action, special effects, and anime gems the likes of which we at Henshin Justice Unlimited just don't know how to quit. In the past, they've already aired classic tokusatsu series like Ultraman Leo and Gridman: The Hyper Agent as well as animated title Theā˜†Ultraman, the first of its kind but not the last. Suf...

POWER RANGERS Actor on House Arrest Following Guilty Indecent Assault Plea

Disappointing news for the Power Rangers fan community this week. After first denying the accusations lobbied against him, actor Rene Naufahu pled guilty to no less than six charges of indecent assault late last year, and in the Auckland District Court of New Zealand, sentencing has finally commenced. Fans of his time on the childrens fantasy show may know him as the alien villain Gruumm in 2005's Power Rangers SPD, or as the mentor to a group of martial arts pupils in 2011's Power Rangers Samurai. It would seem that the alarming trend of sexual misconduct cases that pervades our society today will truly leave no stone unturned, and that includes the casts of this beloved TV series. New Zealand publication Stuff lays out the upsetting details, which stretch back to 2011 where Naufahu ...
