The trailer for the upcoming Godzilla Resurgence by Toho Studio looks impressive as it takes back the reign for their most famous creation after a 12-year absence.

While there were brief glimpses of the beloved Kaiju, the recent footage highlights the changes made to Godzilla’s appearance. The dark red streak that runs on all over his gnarled body.

The trailer gives no clue to the plot of the upcoming film, although the lack of any other Kaiju gives fans something to ponder on. The most impressive aspect of the trailer is the cinematic quality of the upcoming film.

In charge of directing Godzilla: Resurgence is none other than Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi of Neon Genesis’ fame. For the reboot, Anno wrote the screenplay while Higuchi took care of the special effects.

The 29th Toho Studio’s Godzilla: Resurgence is expected to be released in Japan during the Summer this year while other countries will likely get it later this year.
