Look out Godzilla fans because Toho’s iconic Kaiju is returning to UK cinemas in GODZILLA MINUS ONE on December 15th
Back in July, Toho blew our minds by dropping the teaser trailer for a new Godzilla project intended to hit cinemas this winter. The project is titled – GODZILLA MINUS ONE and it promises to be one of the biggest monster hits of 2023. The film, emerging from beneath Toho’s umbrella will see an already devastated postwar Japan facing a new threat in the form of Godzilla.
Following its November 3rd release in Japan, the creature feature will receive a nationwide release in the United States on December 1st. Ordinarily, this information would be enough to have us dancing for joy like a Kaiju. However, the news was tempered by the UK not receiving an official release date. But thankfully, all that is about to change. Anime Limited and Toho Co., Ltd have announced that Godzilla Minus One will be stomping into cinemas in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 15th December 2023. That’s right, the King of the Monsters will be rampaging across our screens in time for Christmas. And that is the ultimate festive treat.
The worst despair in the series’ history strikes Japan! After the war, Japan has been reduced to zero. Godzilla appears and plunges the country into a negative state. The most desperate situation in the history of Japan. Who? And how? Will Japan stand up to it?
Minus One will be Toho’s first effort since Shin Godzilla. The 2016 monster hit was made all the more spectacular by the special effects of Takashi Yamazaki. And Toho has tasked the filmmaker with bringing the new movie to our screens. It comes at a time when the Big Z is more popular with audiences than ever before. For the most part, that can be attributed to his stint in Legendary’s MonsterVerse, which Zilla shares with King Kong. But with Toho as the driving force behind the new project, monster fans will be salivating at the prospect.
So, the tail end of 2023 is looking like a bumper time for cinephiles and monster fans alike. And Godzilla will be leading the charge, and we are 100% here for it. What will transpire in Toho’s newest addition to the monster legacy remains to be seen. But you can bet your bottom dollar that Future of the Force will be here to bring you all the juicy details.
