Toho has announced a July 29 opening date of the first Japanese Godzilla film in 12 years with the release of a poster and brief teaser for "Godzilla: Resurgence."
While the 30-second promo doesn't reveal the King of the Monsters, its shaky camera footage captures plenty of terror as panicked residents flee screaming. The images are punctuated by the sounds Godzilla's signature roar and earth-shaking footsteps.
Co-directed by Hideaki Anno (“Neon Genesis Evangelion”) and Shinji Higuchi ("Attack on Titan"), "Godzilla: Resurgence" is expected to feature the tallest Godzilla yet, towering over the 108-meter creature depicted in Gareth Edwards’ 2014 U.S. film.
Toho has produced 28 Godzilla movies since 1954, with the previous release, 2004’s “Godzilla: Final Wars,” grossing just $12 million.
