Godzilla Attacks Tokyo Bay Landmark in Promo for New Film

The impending release of Godzilla Resurgence in Japan next month is giving way to a ton of nutty new tie-ups and promotions. The latest features the Big G himself towering over Umihotaru: an artificial island, shopping complex, and parking garage smack in the middle of Tokyo bay that functions as the waypoint for an undersea tunnel that links Kanagawa and Chiba. Enjoy the new visual below!

 

 

The Godzilla Resurgence x Umihotaru campaign kicks off the same day that the film opens in Japan: 7/29. Other highlights of the promo include a talk event featuring film director Shinji Higuchi, the unveiling of a new 1/60 scale Godzilla figure, photo ops galore, and a lot of special merchandise. 

 

Seems like a good time to revisit the official trailer for the movie itself…
