‘Godzilla: Resurgence’ Synopsis and Runtime Released


We’ve been writing about Toho’s Godzilla: Resurgence for nearly a year now and the film is fast approaching its July 29th theatrical release date (in Japan, mind you). Up until today, we didn’t know what the synopsis of the film was but that’s changed thanks to a “community individual” contributed translation over at the Gormaru Island Facebook page:

A cause unknown, an accident has occurred in the tunnels of the Tokyo Bay Aqua Line, causing an emergency cabinet meeting to convene. Immediately afterwards, a huge creature appears, destroying town after town with its landing reaching the capital. The mysterious giant organism named “Godzilla”.

Additionally, the informative post adds that the film will clock in at nearly two hours with a runtime of 118 minutes.

Lastly, a short promo featurette has been released that shows a little bit of new footage, although it’s nothing terribly exciting. I’m guessing they’re saving the good parts for the theaters!

Godzilla: Resurgence, the 29th entry in the franchise, will be hitting theaters in Japan on July 29th. It is co-directed by Hideaki Anno (Evangelion) and Shinji Higuchi (Attack on Titan). Anno has written the script.

The cast includes Hiroki Hasegawa, Yutaka Takenouchi, Satomi Ishihara, Rando Yaguchi, and Ren Osugi.

    Something I’ve wondered for a while; do the Japanese actually call him “Godzilla” now, or do they still refer to him as “Gojira” ?

    So Godzilla rampages on the same day that Windows 10 ceases to be free?
    Perhaps Microsoft had a hand in his creation?

    • i’m struggling to decide whether or not to upgrade.

      • Werewolf

        My advice is do it, but not without downloading a piece of software called “DWX Spying” (Destroy Windows 10 Spying) from Majorgeeks. It does what it says and Windows 10 has some pretty insidious services that track you by default. Once you eliminate that crap it’s actually pretty good.

        Here’s the link in case you decide to do it.

    • Satanzilla

      Godzilla cannily waits until then to strike

  • i hope this gets some sort of release in the US asap
