One of the strangest marketing stunts Toho pulled to promote Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters was to erect a giant model of Godzilla's head over a Shinjuku train station entrance. Thanks to Kotaku, we’ve got some images of this exceedingly unusual publicity stunt to share with you below. Also thanks to the Twitter accounts tpdisney_Wie373, ryotaros_k, LaVieEnMalus, macrodragon_bmc, and ksrgbot for uploading their own images.
Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters opened in screens across Japan on November 17, 2017, and has currently grossed a total of $2.5 million.
