HurricaneYellow isn't out of the monster-fighting biz just yet. Actor Yamamoto Kohei, known to many Super Sentai fanatics as super-ninja Bito Kota on Ninpu Sentai Hurricanger, is hard at work on a new project for Toei Company. The developing TV series will feature a new hero not affiliated with the likes of Toei's usual suspects from the long-running Kamen Rider and Super Sentai franchises. Kaiju Ward Gallas, as the name implies, is a kaiju show, with giant monsters as a centerpiece. Not a first for Toei, but after years of focusing heavily on their Big Two, this comes as somewhat of a surprise. Kaiju action is more Tsuburaya Productions' thing. With their ongoing Ultraman franchise, they've defined the look and feel of giant monster action on the small screen for decades now. Elsewhe...

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 ...

Now that the first official trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters is out, fans finally know a little about what lies in store for us in the latest addition to the giant monster movie franchise, and that includes the MonsterVerse debut of beloved daikaiju Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. But one fan decided to do a little remix on the Legendary Pictures trailer, editing the piece to resemble the vibe from classic Toho Studios promos for the old school films, complete with big, animated title cards and voiceover explaining what you're about to see as those unmistakable sound effects ring out. Good times. https://youtu.be/C5VL6WNh2cM Truly, few things in life beat hearing the Japanese word "nani" (what) come from the mouth of Charles "Game of Thrones" Dance. The Michael Doughe...

Who doesn't love Comic-Con, huh? The stars are all alight, ready to spread some much-needed shine on (almost) all our favorite geek properties, soon to be set before us in the coming years as we wait with baited breath. One highly-anticipated offering is the newest entry in Legendary Pictures' MonsterVerse, Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Director Michael Dougherty's creature feature promises more kaiju chaos than you can shake a spiked tail at, as we've invited a few other classic Toho Studios monsters along for this party, all featured in the first trailer. The monsterfest started a little early when a little diddy appeared on the interwebs days earlier. A clip featuring actress Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) looking distraught AF as she tries to find help, after what was no d...

The fire-breathing lord of lizards is back in live-action form with Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the Legendary Pictures production due out next year, and here's a couple pictures from the film to prove it. While the unstoppable kaiju continues his rampage across multiple entertainment platforms at once, including Toho Studios' ongoing animated trilogy, the Legendary sequel to the 2014 franchise-starter is revving up to take the planet by storm, literally. That first film kicked off not only the current western film series for Godzilla, but also a larger continuity known as the MonsterVerse, featuring the likes of King Kong and a number of other classic creatures, paving the way for 2017's Kong: Skull Island, and the next link in the chain following King of the Monsters, Godzilla vs...

Here's a trailer for the upcoming SSSS.Gridman, a new animated adaptation of the live-action original featuring a giant hero who protects his world from menacing kaiju. As previously mentioned, SSSS.Gridman is based upon the 1993 series Gridman: The Hyper Agent, in which the lead protagonist must face a variety of monsters in a digitized landscape to stop the computer world from dominating the physical one. Gridman was also the source material for the US-based series Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad. https://youtu.be/2Z1HU4aalLU SSSS.Gridman begins October 2018.   You might also like: Pre-Order the POWER RANGERS Lord Drakkon Throne Today ULTRAMAN USA Flies to Home Video in September Get Hyped on GRIDMAN: THE HYPER AGENT’s Blu-ray Promo

The land is plentiful with rich fruit from the seeds that Tsuburaya Productions has planted this year, as they continue releasing more gems from their vast vault of voluminous vindicators. As we gear up for another entry in the enduring Ultraman live-action franchise with the upcoming Ultraman R/B, we have another piece of kaiju history in Ultraman USA. Some may know this title best as Ultraman: The Adventure Begins, the anime film that struck while the iron was hot, with American audiences jonesing for some of that anime goodness in the 1980s. Not the first Japanese animated Ultraman piece nor the last, The Adventure Begins serves as an interesting stepping stone along the extensive map this franchise has traveled through the decades. Between 1979's The☆Ultraman and the new Ultraman
