Extras Flee in Apparent 'Shin Godzilla' Movie Scene Filmed in Tokyo on Sunday (Updated)

posted on

Earlier this week a notice posted at the Kamata bus station in Tokyo revealed that buses would not stop as usual at the station on Sunday morning, due to the filming of a movie titled "Shin Gojira" (New Godzilla).

Now it seems one local resident near the station has captured what appears to be a scene of extras fleeing down the street alongside taxis and other cars. See the video below.

Anime director Hideaki Anno and live-action Attack on Titan film director Shinji Higuchi are currently collaborating on TOHO's upcoming Godzilla film, the first new Japanese one in 12 years. Anno is serving as chief director and writer, while Higuchi is directing the new film and is also serving as the special effects director.

TOHO previously announced that filming for the new Godzilla film would begin this fall. TOHO will release the film in Japanese theaters next summer.
