SHIN GODZILLA: Exclusive High-Res Photos from Golden Village Pictures
A SCIFI JAPAN EXCLUSIVE
Toho’s SHIN GODZILLA (シン・ゴジラ, Shin Gojira) has topped the Japanese box office in its first two weeks of release. And that’s just the start of Godzilla’s latest theatrical run, as the film has been licensed in over 100 territories worldwide, including North America.
SHIN GODZILLA’s international release kicks off in Asia, with Singapore one of the first countries to screen the film. Local distributors Golden Village Pictures and Encore Films will open the movie there on August 25th.
Golden Village has provided SciFi Japan with SHIN GODZILLA images — some new, some previously released by Toho — in larger sizes and higher quality than have been seen before.
An unknown source causes a catastrophic accident in the tunnels of the Tokyo Bay Aqua Line, leading to irreparable damage and massive flooding. An emergency cabinet meeting is ordered to salvage the situation and discover the cause of the accident. Soon after, a gigantic creature emerges and rampages through town after town, much to everyone’s horror. How will Japan deal with this gigantic “monster” that they know nothing about?
