The site also announced a special "metallic" advanced ticket for Japanese audiences:
As Toho Animation and Polygon gear up for the November release of the film in Japan, a 2 meter tall Godzilla statue is being built for publicity. This is similar to the 2016 Godzilla statue that toured Japan during Shin Godzilla's promotional run. Thanks to Huge-Ben for directing us to color photos of the statue being teased:
