It was the US Godzilla remake that spurred Toho into making their own brand-new Godzilla remake. Not the previous episode's 1998 Godzilla, but Gareth Edwards' 2014 Godzilla, which ended up becoming a huge hit worldwide, and giving Toho the confidence that they could continue the long-running franchise.
Shin Godzilla was announced in 2015, and just like the 1954 original it emulated, it would be a Godzilla born of disaster and tragedy, as well as a Godzilla who was a terrifying threat to mankind. A Godzilla who not only evolved, but evolved quickly to suit his surroundings; that spewed fire, radiation and destruction in his wake.
How will Japan's government cope with such an intense, immense threat? Why, have multiple meetings, of course...
I would love to hear your thoughts on Shin Godzilla (Shin Gojira) !
