Godzilla Minus One’s First Full Trailer is Here

Godzilla Minus One

The King of Monsters Returns

The wait is over! The first full-length trailer for the upcoming movie Godzilla Minus One, written and directed by Takashi Yamazaki, dropped this week and gives movie-goers a more in-depth look at the monster’s most recent venture to the big screen. 

Monster of Mass Destruction 

The trailer wastes no time in showing the full might of Godzilla’s power. The opening footage shows crowds of frightened people screaming and running for their lives, followed by a train car thrown through the air. The thumping sounds of the monster’s footsteps provide the soundtrack to images of Godzilla obliterating postwar Japan, knocking over buildings, biting through telephone wires, and tossing a boat out of the water. 

While they are not introduced by name, several of the film’s characters can be seen in the trailer, including the man portrayed by Japanese actor Ryanosuke Kamiki. He has worked in both live-action and animated Japanese productions, including the critically acclaimed Studio Ghibli films Spirited Away (2001) and Howl’s Moving Castle (2004). The only other cast member currently listed on IMDB as of this writing is Minami Hamabe, an actress known for the films Let Me Eat Your Pancreas (2017) and Shin Kamen Rider (2023).

Monster in the Making 

Godzilla has been an immensely popular character since his introduction in 1954, both domestically and internationally. He is considered a kaiju, or fictional monster, and described as a prehistoric reptile who was awakened and empowered by the nuclear radiation following the atomic bombing of Japan at the end of World War II in 1945. He has since starred in 33 Japanese films and 5 American ones, most recently Godzilla vs. Kong (2021). 

Toho Company has been the primary studio developing Japanese Godzilla films and is at the helm once again for Minus One. The studio released the following statement in a press release explaining the film’s title: “After the war, Japan’s economic state has been reduced to zero. Godzilla appears and plunges the country into a negative state.” 

The film is set to release in North America on December 1, 2023.
