Godzilla Resurgence will Keep the Shin Godzilla Title for American Theaters

Yesterday, FUNimation announced its acquisition of Godzilla Resurgence, known as Shin-Gojira (Shin-Godzilla) in Japan. Today, SciFi Japan followed up on their exclusive with FUNimation's official press release:

"In an additional note, Toho — despite promoting the new Godzilla at last year’s American Film Market and elsewhere as GODZILLA RESURGENCE — has insisted that Funimation use the English title SHIN GODZILLA (a direct translation of the film’s Japanese name)."

It's unknown why Toho is keeping the Resurgence title for locations outside of Japan with the exception of America, but fans speculate it has something to do with separating the film from Legendary's series or even the recent Independence Day: Resurgence, which has been a less than favorable release.

Shin Godzilla will be released through FUNimation's theatrical division, FUNimation films, late 2016.

To be honest I'm glad chosen to go with the more straight forward translation. The Resurgence title did conflict with Independence Day's sequel I feel.


TitanosaurusMember924 XPJul-22-2016 8:56 PM

^I agree. Plus, if it is a stand alone Godzilla film, it's not really a resurgence.


Mothra LarvaeMember8 XPJul-28-2016 3:57 PM

Is this going to be in selected theaters or theaters all around?


Mothra LarvaeMember66 XPJul-28-2016 5:51 PM

Okay. I will still call this godzilla resurgence. But I do not want them to fail 


Mothra LarvaeMember2 XPAug-06-2016 4:17 PM

I'm glad their keeping the title. Can't wait fro the movie to arrive in theaters.

I think the retention of a foreign word from the original Japanese title is appropriate for a film that's going to feature the original dialogue and be subtitled. 

People who really want to know the meaning of the word "Shin" can easily find out not only what it literally means, but the significance of the word to this film as a complete reboot of the Series.
