This is just something that's been bugging me for a couple of weeks now. We haven't gotten much news about the next Netflix Godzilla movie. 

Now of course if this is Toho's plan, that's fine to play their cards close to their chest, but I just find it odd that the film comes out in month now and we haven't seen any new footage. 

I would imagine that they would have the film near completion by now, we have gotten some stills and concept art, but you'd think that the marketing for the movie would ramp up by now. 

Is it possible that since Planet of the Monsters did poorly at the box office Toho is cutting their losses with it and just allowing the next two films to release on their own? Or is it that any footage would give away key plot details? 

This is just something that's been on my mind for awhile, I'd like to know what you guys think!

I think it's a combination of the low priority of the theatrical release (Toho clearly planned to make its profit from the Netflix deal), and the fact that all three films were made close together and as such the first film and surrounding hype were supposed to already draw in the audience for the sequels. People have known about the second film since the first one came out, so Toho is not prioritizing getting the word out as much it seems.

Shouldn't they at least release a trailer tho? That cant be all that tasking? Just release the trailer on youtube then BANG, you have some advertising at least.

That's my 2 cents

YOU.....DUMBBELL!

I'm not saying they shouldn't release a trailer, I was just suggesting a possible reason why they haven't yet. I still would have expected a trailer by now.

Yeah that's my thinking. As we got closer to the release of Planet of the Monsters, we had tons of footage to watch, this time it's nothing. I do honestly believe it's Toho cutting their loses with the theatrical releases and pushing the Netflix angle since they already got their money for that.

The first film wasn't in a lot of theaters and Toho seemed perfectly happy with Netflix making the bulk of its money. I imagine the second and third will be even more low profile--Maybe even less theaters. (Which seemed like a late decision anyway.)

Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if the third film is set directly for a worldwide Netflix release. I would imagine that recording has begun and that the American company responsible for the dub would have the second films script already. We could see these next two movies released on a quicker timetable than Planet of the Monsters.

How do you know if it is actually legit and not an April Fool's joke?

^ Because April Fool's Day was over two weeks ago and this was just uploaded today?

^It's alright. I would have been skeptical too. It's legit.

Man it's weird how literally the day after I make this post, the trailer comes out.

To be honest I figured once people started legitimately raising concerns about a trailer not being up a month from release Toho would release one. It seems that they waited until all of post-production on the movie was completed to release the first trailer, at least based on one of Hiroyuki Seshita's tweets.
