Shin Godzilla/Godzilla Resurgence

First, despite my excitement about a new Toho produced Godzilla, as far as I have been able to find, there is no US release date as of the time of this publishing. I eagerly await the US release.

Also the nerdverse appears to have had mixed feelings about the new Godzilla design. It’s not as clean and, dare I say, pretty looking as some of the latest Godzillas. But I like it rather a lot. The thing is: Godzilla is a mutation. Godzilla is a mutation brought about by the atomic bomb. This new Godzilla looks like a mutation. His mouth is a little too wide, his teeth just a little off. He looks like nature gone awry. Perhaps nature recoiling from an enormous insult. So, yes, I like the new design.

Slated for release on June 29 2016, Godzilla Resurgence is directed by the duo of Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi who directed Neon Genesis Evangelion. This is rumored to be a reboot of the Godzilla franchise, which is one more reason I really like the design. This Godzilla is also rumored to be the biggest Godzilla to date.

There is an official teaser trailer, although I do fervently hope that Toho does not do the whole movie in found footage style. Please not that.
