I think this is a clip from the upcoming 65th birthday celebration. It's Shodaigoji suit with modern day effects.

^ Awesome! It'll be so exciting to see suitmation Godzilla again!

That suit recreation is just so impressive. Honestly, Legendary should try to get it from Toho to promote their new movie. You know, have him walk the red carpet with the actors and such.

I thought it was just like...a commercial for the museum.

In any event, it probably won't be anything to go nuts over. Though I'm sure people will. Because fandom.

There are precedents for Toho doing something like this.

Monster Planet of Godzilla was an amusement park ride that debuted in 1994 and featured new in-ride footage of Godzilla, Mothra and Rodan using the recent Heisei suits and props.

In 2006, Toho commissioned Koichi Kawakita to shoot new monster footage for Godzilla-themed pachinko parlor game machines, using a lot of suits from the Heisei and Millennium films.

This may be the first time Toho has completely recreated an entire Godzilla suit for something like this. That new Shodaigoji suit looks awesome and I'm glad that they didn't just trot out the Kiryugoji suit and try to pass it off as a Shodaigoji recreation. :wink:

Netflix now has a page for Planet Eater as well as their own dubbed trailer.

Honestly, despite the most tepid response from Godzilla fans I think this anime will age fairly well. Anime fandom is so entrenched all over the world that it's an audience that will continually stumble upon these movies who aren't necessarily the types to seek out the live-action Godzilla movies. The fact that they are tailored more to anime fans then they are to kaiju fans is... probably a good thing, in this respect?

... here's a crazy idea I've been ruminating about what with Toho insinuating themselves into the global Godzilla brand: after Godzilla vs. Kong Toho essentially takes over the series. They'd still be co-productions with American and Chinese sides of the equation, but Toho would be, essentially, in the driver's seat or as close to the driver's seat as they can be.

Also, why not much cheaper films? Shin Godzilla and The Host are two of the best monster movies of the 2000s and they were both made for under the equivalent of 20 million dollars in today's money.

Reports coming out of those are disappointing to say the LEAST.

There's going to be one in Houston in June and given what I've seen and heard out of the ones in LA and NYC, I've gone from thinking I'll definitely drive the half hour to check it out to absolutely NO WAY.
A couple books, a handful of posters, some 8x10 pictures of Godzilla, on a glorified endcap.

Ah, you beat me to it. That's a great tribute to Nakajima, only slightly dampened by being a coffee commercial.

The great thing about this commercial, and the short made for the museum exhibition, is that there's clearly a desire at Toho to preserve the old ways, even if it's not the primary method employed in, say, a new film. Hats off to them!
