The Mainichi Shimbun's MAiDiGi TV YouTube channel began streaming a trailer on Thursday for Godzilla: The Planet Eater (Godzilla: Hoshi wo Kū Mono), the third and final film in the Godzilla anime film trilogy. The trailer shows Godzilla's fight with King Ghidorah.
The film opened in 158 theaters on Friday and ranked #6 in its opening weekend. The film also closed out the Tokyo International Film Festival, which ran from October 25 to November 3 at Roppongi Hills, EX Theater Roppongi, and the Hibiya Step Square.
The website describes the film's story in English:
20,000 years into the future, the Earth is ruled by Godzilla. Pitted against him are the straggling remnants of the human race. The final chapter, Godzilla: The Planet Eater, finds the Mechagodzilla city, the peak of scientific evolution and mankind's best hope, burned to cinders. Godzilla Earth reigns supreme but he has one more challenge: the winged creature, KING GHIDORAH.
Kobun Shizuno (Detective Conan: The Darkest Nightmare and other Detective Conan movies, Fist of the North Star: The Legend of Kenshirô, Fist of the North Star: The Legend of Toki) and Hiroyuki Seshita (Ajin, Knights of Sidonia) directed the films at Polygon Pictures. Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero, Psycho-Pass) of Nitroplus is credited with the story concept and screenplay. Urobuchi was also responsible for series composition with Yūsuke Kozaki.
