We still have a couple of years to wait until Godzilla: King of Monsters brings the king back to the big screen in live-action. But in the meantime, how about a sweet sounding, absolutely crazy anime Godzilla movie? That’s exactly what we’re getting with Godzilla: Monster Planet, which is being released in Japan later this year theatrically and will arrive on Netflix for those of us in the U.S. Now the first poster for the first ever anime Godzilla movie has arrived and, though pretty minimal, it is really rad.
The Godzilla: Monster Planet Twitter account revealed the poster, which features the famed kaiju, looking quite similar to his live-action 2014 version, all in black and white. As opposed to the original version of Godzilla, this is much more bulky, massive and imposing. Not to say that Godzilla wasn’t always imposing, but this thing is just too huge to be reckoned with. What is perhaps most interesting is that this poster is starkly different than the first wave of art that was released for Godzilla: Monster Planet, which was very colorful, if also quite bleak.
Godzilla: Monster Planet is directed by Kobun Shizuno and Hiroyuki Seshit and, probably most importantly, is being produced by Toho, the company who originated the Godzilla franchise. They did a great job with Shin Godzilla, aka Godzilla: Resurgence last year, so there is no reason to think this will be anything but amazing!
