Manga Entertainment has revealed that Shin Godzilla, from Toho Company, will be crashing into cinemas for a limited period this August.
Shin Godzilla is the 29th Godzilla film produced by Toho and brings a brand new chapter to the iconic monster’s 62-year history. Co-directed by Hideaki Anno (creator of Evangelion) and Shinji Higuchi (director of Toho’s 2015 Attack on Titan live action movies), the movie will see Godzilla tearing apart another city as its population scramble to put an end to its destruction.
The movie will star Hiroki Hasegawa, Satomi Ishihara, as well as Yutaka Takenouchi.
“We are very thrilled to finally be bringing Shin Godzilla to UK audiences this August,” said Andrew Hewson, Marketing Manager of Manga Entertainment. “The Godzilla franchise is one of the most iconic in film history and we are incredibly proud to now be a part of that. This deserves to be seen on the big screen and we hope fans show their support for this limited theatrical release.”
