It's been 12 years since Toho put out a Godzilla film, in that time Japan has suffered through a Level 7 nuclear event while Gareth Edwards has jump-started the King of Monsters brand, directing a financially successful adaptation that focused on unwieldy, unlikely heroism. Rather than sit back and let Legendary Entertainment hog all the catastrophe, Toho has recruited Hideaki Anno (Neon Genesis Evangelion) and Shinji Higuchi (Special Effects Director on Shusuke Kaneko's Gamera trilogy) to shepard their own take to the screen. Their Godzilla is a towering, radioactive wraith; a flayed titan slathered in glowing, molten slag, desperate to share his pain with the world.
