The heavily anticipated 'Shin Godzilla', which is also known as Godzilla Resurgence, now has an official stateside release date, and you can view an exclusive photo from the upcoming project in the gallery.
The new photo captures what it feels like for a normal sized human being to at the mercy of this walking Goliath as he makes his way through the city in the most destructive way possible. It must be highlighted in the mysterious monster handbook.
We are thrilled to bring 'Shin Godzilla' to theaters across North America this October," said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and President of Funimation.
