If you are ready for a bit more Godzilla in your life, then Netflix has your fix coming right up. The streaming site will house the kaiju's first-ever anime film later this year, and a new trailer for the movie has given fans their best look yet at Godzilla.
As you can see above, the latest trailer for Godzilla: Planet of Monsters shows off the film's 3-D animation style as much as it does Godzilla itself. The beast is seen fighting back against humanity's final forces after mankind returns to Earth in hopes to reclaiming the planet from the King of Monsters. The trailer sees a handful of pilots giving their all against Godzilla as the beast charges up his atomic breath, but fans will have to wait to see who wins the battle. The film is slated to drop on November 17, so the answer will be here before fans know it.
If you are not familiar with the Godzilla project, then you should know an all-star team is working on the film. Kobun Shizuno and Hiroyuki Seshita are co-directing the project with Polygon Pictures. Gen Urobuchi penned the film's script and tag-teamed its composition alongside Yusuki Kozaki. Godzilla: Planet of Monsters also has a formidable vocal cast that includes Yuuki Kaji, Takahiro Sakurai, Mamoru Miyano, Junichi Suwabe, Kana Hanazawa, and Tomokazu Sugita.
Netflix's first original Godzilla feature is not like any the franchise has welcomed before. A beginner's guide to the film was released, and you can read up on the summary below:
The last summer of the 20th Century.
That day, the human beings learn that they are not the only ruler of the planet Earth.The appearance of the giant living creatures “Kaiju's” and the ultimate existence that destroys all monsters: Godzilla. Through the battle against kaiju's that lasted for half a century, human beings has experienced continuous defeat, and finally plans to escape from the Earth. And in 2048, only those who were selected by the A.I. managed under the central government boarded the inter-sidereal emigrant spaceship “Aratrum” to head for “Tau Cetus e”, the planet beyond the distance of 11.9 light-year. However, the environmental condition differences between that of the Earth and Tau e, which they finally arrived after 20 years were far beyond the predicted numbers, and was not an environment considered to be habitable by human beings.
The young man on the emigrant ship: Haruo, who saw his parents killed by Godzilla in front of his eyes when he was 4 years old, had only one thing in his mind for 20 years: to return to the Earth and defeat Godzilla. Shut out from the possibility of emigration, as the living environment in the ship deteriorates, the group of “Earth Returnists” led by Haruo became the majority, and determines to head back to Earth through a dangerous long-distance hyperspace navigation. However, the Earth they have returned has already passed the time of 20,000 years, and has become an unknown world with the ecosystem reigned by Godzilla.
At the end, will human beings win back the Earth? And what will Haruo see beyond his fate?
