Toho recently held a press conference about the quickly approaching Godzilla Resurgence. Present was director Hideaki Anno, producer Akihiro Yamauchi and stars Hiromi Hasegawa, Satomi Ishihara and Yutaka Takenouchi. Eiji Tsuburaya: Master of Monsters author, August Ragone broke the news that said conference revealed Toho had sold Godzilla Resurgence to 100 distributors all over the world. It's safe to say Toho is back in the international market.
"RESURGENCE has been sold to 100 territories across the globe as of July 19th, with more pending. Conversely, 12 years ago, GODZILLA FINAL WARS was sold to 67 territories, worldwide."
Both North American and European Godzilla fans will be pleased to know that both territories were explicitly mentioned for distribution. No information in regards to who is distributing the film or how at this time. (Though it doesn't seem likely to be New World Cinemas at the moment.)
For more information and territories listed for Godzilla Resurgence, check out August Ragone's blog, The Good, The Bad and The Godzilla.
Yahoo Japan has also confirmed Godzilla Resurgence's reach to North America and a map has been released revealing locations of the film's distribution marked by images of ShinGoji:
Additionally, footage of the press conference was shown that included previously unseen shots from the film. Of particular interest to fans, some of these shots include Godzilla making landfall. A particularly impressive shot is Godzilla's footstep shaking roof tiles loose from a home:
Another video with lesser quality includes more press material, while showing even more footage of Godzilla's landfall and the military's strategy of bombarding him in the face and legs:
Thanks to Scified member Huge-Ben for tipping us at the videos.
Godzilla Resurgence releases Friday, July 29th in Japan as Shin-Gojira. We'll keep up-to-date on the hype leading up to it. Stay tuned as more pours in.
