Godzilla Displays New Powers in Planet of the Monsters Special Preview

Godzilla Displays New Powers in Planet of the Monsters Special Preview

Although the fairly limited box office run of Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters is coming to a fairly disappointing end, its reign on Netflix has yet to begin. Likely in anticipation for it, Toho Animation and Polygon have released a special character preview for the film showcasing the various players and new footage of Godzilla. Take a look:

I would have made an editorial myself for this trailer, but the last time I tried it didn't work. Which is why I made a discussion post for the trailer. Oh well. What's done is done. Anyways, I'm intrigued by Godzilla's new powers. I can't wait for the anime to come to Netflix.

On a similar note, NHK World did a half hour special on the film that has found its way to YouTube.  I'd post it as an editorial, but I currently have no internet in my apartment, so formatting a banner and typing out a full article is sadly not an option for me right now. :( 

So, here is be:

Huh, interesting, still waiting for the dub tho.

I think there are two Godzillas. Look at 0:45. There’s a beam that looks like the Atomic Breath coming from somewhere offscreen, but you can see Godzilla in the background. 


Dec-20-2017 5:50 AM

^it is believed to be coming from Godzilla's tail like in Shin. That's what I heard. Don't hold me against it though.

I want to know what the "invisible ray" coming from Godzilla's mouth is. What is the story with that?


Dec-20-2017 6:43 AM

@Sci-Fi King25, It could be Godzilla Jr. This is a Planet of the Monsters after all. If you look at 1:03, you can see Godzilla is missing the chin spikes. But is you look at the beginning and end of the trailer, he has them. there are likely 2 Godzillas.

@riggzamortis86, I think that invisible ray is an EMP. This incarnation is supposed to emit EMPs like the Muto, so it could a directed attack. Whatever it is, it's pretty cool.


Dec-20-2017 7:10 AM

^Oh. thanks for the info.

I never noticed the chin spikes. you may be on to something, but I heard about the tail power a while back.

I hate to be a ball-buster here but, there's only 1 confirmed Godzilla in this anime. He starts off at 50 meters tall and grows to 300 meters. 984 feet to be exact. This Godzilla does have a tail beam attack just a little bit different than Shin Godzilla. The Japanese I've talked to all confirm this but have not told me about the story. I'd like to keep it that way to be honest. 

This is all the information I contain at my disposal. Spoilers I guess. Don't worry, more to come soon. 


Dec-20-2017 10:57 AM

^ Sorry man, but that's not the case.

I will not spoil the movie here, but I will say that the 50 meter Godzilla that caused humanity to flee the Earth and the 300 meter Godzilla (referred to as "Godzilla Earth") are the same creature. 

In regards to the "second Godzilla" thing, I know what's going on and whether it's true or not, and I'll only spoil it if you guys want me to.


Dec-20-2017 11:27 AM

^I know what is going on too and, whether it is true or not, have chosen to remain quiet out of respect for others who do not want spoilers.


Dec-20-2017 11:42 AM

^Good on ya, man. :) That's the way to go.  

I certainly don't intend to spoil anything in a comments section; that's just plain inconsiderate.  If anyone is curious and doesn't care about spoilers, however, a PM is the way to go.

However, I'd urge you all to just wait to see the film.  The events that occur surrounding Godzilla and humanity after the latter' return to Earth is best enjoyed not knowing what is going to happen.  But that's just my two cents.

Whoa.. that last blast.. was off the chain insane. I look forward to seeing the whole thing.
