Giant Godzilla Head Appears In Tokyo

Giant Godzilla Head Appears In Tokyo

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. Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters stars the voice talents of Mamoru Miyano (Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Ultraman Zero: The Movie), Takahiro Sakurai (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans), Kana Hanazawa (.hack//Quantum), Yuki Kaji (Attack on Titan), Tomokazu Sugita (Attack on Titan), Junichi Suwabe (Space Dandy), Kenta Miyake (Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn), Kenyu Horiuchi (Bleach, One Piece), Kazuhiro Yamaji (Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children) and Kazuya Nakai (Dragon Ball Super). The film is directed by Kobun Shizuno (Detective Conan: The Darkest Nightmare) & Hiroyuki Seshita (Knights of Sidonia) from a screenplay by Gen Urobuchi (Kamen Rider Gaim).

The movie is currently playing in Japanese theaters and will hit Netflix worldwide sometime in 2018.

The sequel, currently translated as Godzilla: Decisive Battle, Mobile Breeder City, hits Japanese theaters May, 2018.

It's been up since mid November.  Not sure what's so "exceedingly unusual" about it; Japan has a giant Godzilla head on a hotel, at least two bronze Godzilla statues, a giant Godzilla slide in a park... A giant inflatable head is about as "exceedingly ususual" as the giant Santa on the roof of the car dealership down the street from my apartment.

But it is pretty awesome.

It kind of reminds me of a an old dogs head.. resting on your lap.. just gazing in a direction.. and I can just see it.. a hand petting it's head as it rests there.. that is what I see.. when I look at this image longer.

It looks very peaceful and calm.. not scary at all.

Anyway, this is a cool looking statue, although I wish they made the rest of the head.

Such a classic. Also, who is everyone talking about: the Godzilla head or the lion, or is it a trick question? A riddle, if you will?
