Although many details about Godzilla Resurgence is being kept under lock & key, (despite some desperate fans' attempt to claim they've seen the leaked script recently) the Godzilla brand keeps cranking out merchandise in celebration of the Monster King's next film. One such piece being released is the highly anticipated, The Art of Shin-Godzilla. A sneak peek of the book reveals Shin-Godzilla concept art by Mahiro Maeda--It features a slightly more traditional variation of the new Godzilla. (Naturally, this has spurred more speculation about Godzilla having “different forms” in the movie.)
Priced at $92.00 USD, The Art of Shin-Godzilla will include concept designs, the complete script, interviews, storyboards, leaflets, photos of sets, miniatures and the creation of Toho's CG Godzilla! The book (in Japanese) will be available August 10th and can be pre-ordered on Amazon Japan.
Additionally, special effects/co-director, Shinji Higuchi, and executive producer Akihiro Yamauchi, attended the 2016 Tokyo Toy Fair for the unveiling of S.H. Monsterarts' Shin Godzilla. There, Higuchi announced that they were still working on completing the film. “It's still being made,” said Higuchi, while acknowledging the film's deadline is coming up.
Cinema Today mentions that the film has had some production issues. Indeed, rumors have swirled that the leaked Godzilla puppet failed effects tests, hence why they opted for CG. Other rumors suggest Toho has asked for re-shoots regarding the dramatic scenes.
If there's any truth regarding these rumors, it seems that Higuchi has embraced the challenge of completing the film despite production troubles. “We have a lot of people working very hard to make something good until the very end,” he announced.
What do you think of the Shin-Godzilla concept art? Are you interested in picking The Art of Shin-Godzilla? Is Higuchi racing to the finish line with Godzilla Resurgence? Despite the longer-than-usual production schedule for the film, do you think this will affect the quality? Let us know in the comments below.
