We have a late update of the site with some breaking news...

FUNimation has just announced that it officially plans to release Toho’s live action Shin Godzilla (2016) on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on 8/1. The film was directed by Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi. You’ll be able to watch the film in the original Japanese with English subtitles or in a new English language dub.

Note that this film has also been released in Japan in 4K Ultra HD format, but there’s no U.S. 4K version coming at this time.

I was fortunate enough to catch the film in its North American debut screening in Los Angeles. It’s quite good. In fact, I’d call it the best modern take on Godzilla I’ve seen yet. The film received a limited theatrical release here in the States in October of last year and it’s next set to be screened at the Famous Monsters Convention in Dallas later this month. (You can purchase tickets here.)

Stay tuned…
