“Make way for the ultimate homage to one of the most enduring legends of the big screen – Godzilla, The King of the Monsters is back in Tokyo for an all-new, city-crushing crusade that speaks to the very roots of the world-renowned franchise.
It’s a peaceful day in Japan when a strange fountain of water erupts in the bay, causing panic to spread among government officials. At first, they suspect only volcanic activity, but one young executive dares to wonder if it may be something different … something alive. His worst nightmare comes to life when a massive gilled monster emerges from the deep and begins tearing through the city, leaving nothing but destruction in its wake. As the government scrambles to save the citizens, a rag-tag team of volunteers cuts through a web of red tape to uncover the monster’s weakness and its mysterious ties to a foreign superpower. But time is not on their side – the greatest catastrophe to ever befall the world is about to evolve right before their very eyes. With Shin Godzilla (aka Godzilla Resurgence), co-directors Hideaki Anno (Evangelion) and Shinji Hijuchi (Attack on Titan) have unleashed an epic, thrilling, action-packed installment of the enduring kaiju series (the 32nd film in the franchise, and already a monster hit in its native Japan) that harkens back to the terrifying realism of Ishirô Honda original 1954 classic, Godzilla! (Dir. by Hideaki Anno & Shinji Hijuchi , 2016, Japan, in Japanese with subtitles, 120 mins., Not Rated)”

If you’re wondering why I posted this in Blogforarizona.net, you won’t, after seeing this political movie. Once the Godzilla creature comes ashore, the Prime Minister of Japan and his cabinet must start making decisions on what to do — stop it, drive it away, eradicate? Calling this new monster by it’s original name Gojira, younger Japanese politicians and scientists (and the military) must face this emergency head on, to save Tokyo’s millions and ultimately, the world from destruction. Having lived in Tokyo twice, it’s amazing to see the movie scenes of all that destruction in Gojira’s wake. Playing for one week only, till Oct. 18.
