Polygon Pictures’ new anime film, Godzilla: Planet of Monsters, has now made its Japanese premiere. Now, as the rest of the world awaits its worldwide premiere via Netflix, the anime’s official website has revealed new details about its sequel. Titled “Godzilla: The City Mechanized for the Final Battle,” the staff have now unveiled its new poster visual. This visual teases a familiar enemy for the King of Monsters, and that is Mecha Godzilla.
The poster also reveals that the second film will premiere in May 2018. In previous Godzilla films, the humans developed Mecha Godzilla as the “ultimate anti-Godzilla weapon”. They actually made several other variations, including Kiryuu, which they made from the first Godzilla’s bones.
The infamous Urobutcher himself, Gen Urobuchi, will be writing the script, so don’t get attached to any character. Meanwhile, Polygon Pictures will be handling the trilogy’s animation.
Netflix, the world’s largest TV and movie streaming service, will be releasing the anime film globally. Of course, this includes Japan, where TOHO will be coordinating a theatrical and global streaming release, along with Netflix.
