Comicbook.com reports that FUNimation made a public announcement at their San Diego Comic Con panel! Announcing plans for a late year theatrical release, FUNimation CEO, Gen Fukunaga beamed,
"Funimation is extremely pleased to be working with Toho to bring Shin-Godzilla [Godzilla Resurgence] to audiences across the Americas. Godzilla became a science fiction icon from the moment Toho brought it to the big screen in 1954. We’re honored to be a part of its rich history.”
