Finally! The monster we’ve all come to know and love over the decades is back -- and he’s angry, you wouldn't like him when he's angry -- in this first Godzilla: Resurgence trailer.

The trailer gives us our first full look at the iconic monster in all his rampaging glory before switching to shots of folks terrorized by the giant monster and taking action against him. The trailer is in Japanese, but fear not! The footage is completely dialogue-free.

Even though the last time we saw the iconic monster was in Gareth Edwards’ 2014 Godzilla, this is TOHO’s first Godzilla film in more than a decade, since the release of Godzilla: Final Wars in 2004. Co-directed by Hideaki Anno (Neon Genesis Evangelion) and Shinji Higuchi (who did the visual effects on the Gamera trilogy), with a screenplay by Anno, the movie is the 29th entry in TOHO’s franchise and will be released … July 29.

Pretty neat, don't ya think?  Have a look:


Man, that roar was awesome! Fans of Gojira have been waiting a really long time for this, and finally seeing the big guy in full-on destructive action really hits all the right spots.

Starring Hiroki Hasegawa, Yutaka Takenouchi and Satomi Ishihara, Godzilla: Resurgence will open in movie theaters in Japan on July 29, 2016. Expect to see it later in the year in North America. Crossing my fingers.
