In the final days before Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters stomps onto Japanese screens this week, here are a couple promos featuring a blend of footage both fresh and familiar to those who have been paying attention to the trailers. Marking the atomic lizard's first major 3D animated feature, Planet of the Monsters is the first of a planned trilogy in this format, the results of which we'll be watching with great interest.
I may never tire of watching Godzilla charge up for a nuclear blast. The energy surging up his spine, crackling throughout his body until at last releasing is a sight to behold in any entertainment medium, when done correctly. We await the film's international Netflix release wit...
It was a fierce campaign, but TV Asahi's Godzilla General Election was a roaring success, in which the most fearsome beasts in all the land stomped the competition and soared to the top, a trail of kaiju bodies roasting in atomic fire behind them. For those unaware, the first terrestrial broadcast of 2016's monster flick Shin Godzilla debuted on Japanese television just days ago, and in celebration of this momentous occasion, the Godzilla General Election was held. Ten-thousand fans of the big G and his towering friends were asked to choose from a list of 50 monsters, who among them was their favorite. The films they starred in were also ranked, and the results are in. Some of which may come as a surprise. Whether that surprise is pleasant or otherwise, we leave up to you.
It's a foregone conclusion that any sufficiently epic movie from Japan will, at some point leading up to its release, put out a trailer with a seemingly random pop music track suddenly bursting through our speakers. As cities come alight with atomic fire and buildings are toppled around fleeing citizens, someone, somewhere is belting her heart out about love and happiness to a jaunty club beat. It's just the way of the world. And so, here we are, with the arrival of the official music video for XAI's "WHITE OUT", theme song to Toho's latest in a long line of kaiju flicks, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters.
We got our first taste of this song a while back when the film's recent trailer dropped, though I'll forgive you if it slipped your mind. I know it slipped mine, since the visuals of...
Looks like Kamen Rider Den-O's not the only one who starts on a climax. The toy lords of Premium Bandai have gifted us a mighty prize in this new, prestigious depiction of the towering lizard from 2016's smash hit Shin Godzilla, as shown in the exciting final act of the film. In which, the famous King of Monsters is seen firing his atomic beam, for this film given a distinct, purple glow, with an unnerving, elongated jaw. Check him out.
Comparing the size of this item with the previously released Movie Monster Series Godzilla, Kaiju-Oh reaches nearly 11 inches in height, almost twice the size of the figure from its sister line.
Wreaking giant-sized havoc in March 2018, the Kaiju-Oh 2016 Godzilla Climax Ver. is available now for pre-order and is priced at 7,560 yen.
Earth of the future has become a smoldering den of kaiju in Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, the new animated feature from Polygon Pictures and creature-feature titan Toho. In this 3D animated tale, a group of space travelers whose family had once abandoned the ravaged Earth now return to the place humanity once called home, for one last battle against the horde of monsters that now rule in their stead. Let's check out the trailer.
That beam tho.
Planet of the Monsters comes to us three years after Legendary Pictures released their own Godzilla, and one year after Toho's Shin Godzilla woke the fire-breathing beast from cinematic hibernation on its native shores of Japan. It proves an unexpected follow-up to the live-action effort from Att...
