The latest trailer for Godzilla Minus One dropped on Friday morning, and in the clip, we get a closer look at the awesome scale of the iconic kaiju that’s wreaking havoc in post-war Japan.

The 37th installment in Toho’s long-running monster franchise, the film, which was the closing film at the Tokyo International Film Festival, is a period piece and shows Godzilla appearing as Japan struggles to recover after WW2.

Godzilla Minus One is written and directed by noted CG animator and VFX artist Takashi Yamazaki (Lupin III: The First, The Great War of Archimedes). The film stars Ryunosuke Kamiki, Minami Hamabe, Yuki Yamada, Munetaka Aoki, Hidetaka Yoshioka, Sakura Ando, and Kuranosuke Sasaki.

The film is Yamazaki’s third on-screen depiction of Godzilla, following his previous use of the character with CG imagery in Always: Sunset on Third Street 2 (2007) and Seibu-en’s Godzilla the Ride (2021).

Toho International will release the film in North America in November, with Anime Ltd releasing the film in the U.K. and Ireland.
