Shin Godzilla Stomps into UK Cinemas this August 2017

Date: Thursday 13th July 2017 [9:21] | Posted By: Joe

Fans of cult Japanese Cinema and anime in general will be very pleased to hear the news from Manga Entertainment UK that they'll be releasing the new Godzilla Movie - Shin Godzilla across the UK on Thursday 10th August 2017. It's co-directed by Hideaki Anno who is most famous for creating Neon Genesis Evangelion, (but is also know as being a massive tokusatsu fan) and Shinji Higuchi (director of Toho’s 2015 Attack on Titan live action movies). The film was a box office smash in Japan in 2016.

Hideaki Anno's involvement in the film is a perfect choice, as someone who has had giant monsters smash cities before in previous work (even his student films have this element) to join forces with Shinji Higuchi who used traditional tokusatsu speical effects combined with CGI to create the Attack on Titan Live Action movies.

Shin Godzilla literally translates as New Godzilla and will be screened nationally across the UK. To find a screening near you and book tickets, visit shingodzillamovie.co.uk.

SHIN GODZILLA STOMPS ACROSS THE UK THIS SUMMER

Toho Produced Film to Screen Nationwide on 10th August

LONDON, UK – 11th July 2017 – The iconic science fiction monster Godzilla makes land fall in the UK this August with the theatrical release of Shin Godzilla from Toho Company, Ltd. Today, Manga Entertainment revealed that Shin Godzilla will roar into cinemas for a limited engagement on Thursday 10th August. Tickets for the film are now available for pre-purchase on the official film website, shingodzillamovie.co.uk.

Co-directed by Hideaki Anno (creator of Evangelion) and Shinji Higuchi (director of Toho’s 2015 Attack on Titan live action movies), Shin Godzilla is the 29th Godzilla film produced by Toho and represents a brand new chapter in the 62-year history of this celebrated movie monster. The film stars Hiroki Hasegawa and Satomi Ishihara – both also from the Attack on Titan live action movies – as well as Yutaka Takenouchi.

"We are very thrilled to finally be bringing Shin Godzilla to UK audiences this August," said Andrew Hewson, Marketing Manager of Manga Entertainment. "The Godzilla franchise is one of the most iconic in film history and we are incredibly proud to now be a part of that. This deserves to be seen on the big screen and we hope fans show their support for this limited theatrical release."

Shin Godzilla has been a big hit in Japan since its opening on 29th July 2016, which garnered a box office of ¥ 845,675,500 and total audience of 564,332 during its first three days. To date in Japan, the movie has grossed ¥ 8,200,000,000 at the box office.
