Godzilla Stomps Into Universal Studios Japan for New Attraction in 2017
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Godzilla is following Dragon Ball Z and Evangelion with a multi-sensory theater attraction at Universal Studios Japan.
Godzilla: The Real 4D will bring the fight against Hideaki Anno's incarnation of the monster to life. Godzilla: The Real 4D marks Godzilla's first foray as an amusement park attraction.
Godzilla: The Real 4D will open at the park on January 13 after the "Universal Jump Summer" attractions wrap up. The park is currently hosting Goku and Frieza's battle in the theater, a Death Note real escape game, and the Universal Jump Exhibition, which showcases exhibits from various Shonen Jump series. Yo-kai Watch is also haunting the park this summer.
Funimation Entertainment announced at Comic Con International that it will release TOHO's Godzilla: Resurgence (Shin Godzilla) film. It plans to release the film in theaters in North America, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean in late 2016.
The film is the 29th Godzilla film by TOHO. Evangelion director Hideaki Anno and live-action Attack on Titan film director Shinji Higuchi are collaborating on the film. Anno is serving as chief director and writer, while Higuchi is directing the new film and is also serving as visual effects director. Mahiro Maeda (Mad Max: Fury Road, The Animatrix, Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo, "Kyoshinhei Tokyo ni Arawaru") worked on the image designs, and Takayuki Takeya (Kamen Rider Drive, live-action Attack on Titan) worked on the character designs based on the concepts by Maeda and Anno.
The film opened in Japan on July 29, and has IMAX, MX4D, and 4DX screenings.
