One last battle remains to decide the fate of a post-apocalyptic Earth in Godzilla: Planet Eater, the third and final film in this 3D animated giant monster trilogy.
From Toho Animation and Polygon Pictures, the series plays out as a three-act storyline for the King of Monsters, which finally reaches its conclusion this year, featuring one of Godzilla's most famous foes, the golden dragon King Ghidorah. There's no shortage of kings among the kaiju, are there?
This time, King Ghidorah's looking a bit different, as the anime tale brings us a new vision of the beast whose divergent sights are about to be set against his enormous, reptilian co-star. If nothing else, you can't fault this series for lack of ideas. They've got more imagination packed into this thing than several live-acti...
Godzilla: Planet Eater, the third and final film in the animated experiment that is Toho's giant monster trilogy is nearly here. And its first imagery insists that we'll get some action with one of the atomic lizard's most fearsome foes, the great King Ghidorah. But it wouldn't be the G-trilogy without some unique spin on the classics, so we'll not be going in expecting the same three-headed space dragon we've known for decades.
The anime three-parter's first installment stomped across Japanese cinema screens and international streaming monitors to a mixed array of reactions, ranging from "I loved it", hailing Godzilla: Planet of Monsters as a fresh visionary take, to "I hate it", dismissing it as a failure in concept and execution, and a whole gamut of emotions somewhere between the ...
Here's a trailer for Toho Animation's Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle, the 2018 sequel to last year's 3D animated kaiju flick, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters. This Polygon Pictures release marks the second in a proposed trilogy which tells the story of a post-apocalyptic future Earth ruled by giant monsters.
Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle enters Japanese theaters May 18, 2018.

Earth of the future has seen better days, as the giant lizard Godzilla has been having his way with the planet for thousands of years while the humans who abandoned it have tried and mostly failed to colonize other, less hellish planets than the one they once called home. This is the premise as we step into Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, the first of an interlocking three-part film story about the atomic beasty and his reign over an apocalyptic world. In Toho Studios' six-decade history with the giant monster and his scaly friends, we've never seen his towering form rendered with animation in a feature before. As a longtime kaiju fan, from witnessing his first terrifying rampage across Tokyo in 1954's Gojira to Legendary's recent Hollywood offering, 2014's Godzilla, I looked forward t...
It's a new day for kaiju fans. The giant lizard Godzilla is enjoying his biggest time in the sun in years as there are several separate titles with his character and related mythology all actively building toward release, both from Japanese studio and primary rightsholder Toho Studios as well as from the US moviemakers at Legendary Pictures. It's a great time to be alive for anyone with an affinity for giant monsters and the humans who flee in terror from them. Unto that breach, word has come down that Toho will now officially co-finance international film productions with their properties, including animated vehicles like Pokemon, live-action adaptations of anime triumphs like your name, and of course, the King of Monsters himself.
Nikkei reports on the three-year deal, which sees To...
At long last, he arrives. Ever since the Godzilla franchise branched out, sending the atomic lizard on a rampage through the landscape of animation with Toho Studios' new anime film trilogy, international kaiju fans have wondered when they were going to get a chance to see his first outing, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters for themselves. Now, thanks to the fine folks at Netflix, the Polygon Pictures 3D animated feature makes its way to our screens this January. And here's a nifty new trailer to prove it.
Oh my. I think I need a moment. Be right back, rewatching at max volume till my ears bleed.
Okay, I'm back.
Looks like the film was in good hands with directing duo Shizuno Kobun and Seshita Hiroyuki, along with writer Urobuchi Gen of the tokusat...
Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters is stomping its way into the print medium with a new comic based on this, the first official animated feature for the long-running Godzilla franchise. The giant lizard's story will be told in manga form based on the character designs from the film, with new material only found in this version of the tale. Published in Shonen Jump this March and illustrated by Youth Kurahashi. Meanwhile, the kaiju anime trilogy continues its rampage as the second of the three gets its title. What a marvelous year it will be for monsters.
Natalie brings us the news for the manga, which will feature added backstory for the film's cast of characters, as we await the arrival of the next post-apocalyptic kaiju throwdown just months later.

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'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...
