'Godzilla: Monster Planet' Trailer

The first trailer is here for the Godzilla anime film 'Godzilla: Kaiju Wakusei' (Godzilla: Monster Planet). The film is co-directed by Kōbun Shizuno and Hiroyuki Seshita, with a screenplay by Gen Urobuchi

In the year 2048, the human race is forced to leave Earth after decades of losing against Godzilla and other giant monsters. They take a twenty year journey to another planet called Tau Ceti e, but upon arrival, they discover that the planet has become uninhabitable. As living conditions on their ship deteriorate, a young man named Haruo spearheads a movement to return to Earth and take it back from the monsters. The ship successfully makes the return voyage, but the crew discovers that twenty thousand years have passed and Earth's ecosystem has evolved, with Godzilla reigning atop the new food chain.

The film is scheduled to be released theatrically in Japan in November 2017 and will be released worldwide on Netflix after the film's theatrical release.
