|Out on:||Theatrical 15th Dec. 2023|
Almost seventy-years after the King of Monsters first towered over cinema screens and established itself as a cultural icon of Japan, Godzilla is back! Anime Limited and Toho Co., Ltd are excited to announce that GODZILLA MINUS ONE will soon be rampaging in your city, with a release exclusively in cinemas across the United Kingdom and Ireland from 15th December 2023.
The latest film in Toho’s classic series, GODZILLA MINUS ONE was crafted to be the most terrifying incarnation of the character yet, returning the franchise to its post-war roots with a Japan gripped by the helplessness of having already lost everything before this new, monstrous threat emerges. When despair is piled on top of despair, will the people be able to survive, never mind fight back?
Calling GODZILLA MINUS ONE “the culmination of all the films I have made to date, and one that deserves to be "experienced" rather than "watched" in the theater”, the film is written and directed by the acclaimed filmmaker Takashi Yamazaki. Inspired by formative experiences with STAR WARS and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, Yamazaki has become a leading figure in Japan’s visual effects industry, and has won multiple awards for bringing Japan’s pop culture icons to the big screen, with films including Stand By Me Doraemon, Lupin III: The First and The Great War of Archimedes.
GODZILLA MINUS ONE had its World Premiere on 18th October 2023 and is also selected as the closing film of the 36th Tokyo International Film Festival. The film stars Ryunosuke Kamiki (“Your Name”) alongside Minami Hamabe (“Shin Kamen Rider”).
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?
GODZILLA MINUS ONE will be released in cinemas, IMAX and 4DX across the United Kingdom and Ireland from 15th December 2023 in Japanese with English subtitles. For more information and to book tickets, please visit godzillafilm.co.uk
