Tsuburaya Productions has released the trailer for the eagerly anticipated "Shin Ultraman", slated for release in the summer of 2021.
Helmed by Shinji Higuchi and written by Hideaki Anno, the two previously collaborated on 2016's Shin Godzilla. Along with our first glimpse of Ultraman himself, we also get to see new versions of Neronga and Gabora from the original series. Perhaps more monsters are yet to be revealed?
While there is still much we don't know about the film, right away we can see the Evangelion style shots and extreme closeups of Shin Godzilla are present in the cinematography of Shin Ultraman.
Tsuburaya Productions has also revealed new posters for the film, one with the cast and another showing what appears to be the Beta Capsule used for Shin Hayata's transformation into Ultraman.
It’s been seven years since Gareth Edwards released Godzilla in 2014, kicking off the American “Monsterverse” (which has certainly panned out better than the Dark Universe), and was followed by Kong: Skull Island and Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Now Kong and Godzilla square off for the first time in almost 60 years in Godzilla Vs. Kong, and after decades of waiting the resulting film was surprisingly decent.
