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.
No artist has captured the eroticism of death and the organic quality of machinery quite like HR Giger. New York's Lomex gallery (86 Walker St # 3, New York, NY 10013) is featuring work from the legendary artist. Running until April 2, HRGNYC features sculptures, prints, and original drawings by Giger spanning his entire career.
Often our fond memories of cartoons or movies from our youth are protected by the haze of memories, and we have to decide whether to keep it tucked away in that fond miasma or bring it back out for reappraisal. This all sounds very weighty, but I’m talking about a cartoon where schoolgirls perform wrestling moves on giant robots. When I first saw a preview screening of the restoration of Project A-Koat Otakon 2021, it was with some trepidation. Would this seemingly frivolous anime from 1986 still hold up?
