Godzilla Minus One has been playing in Japanese theaters for a couple of weeks, but isn't set to roar onto the big screen in the U.S. until December 1, and this is sure to get fans of the King of the Monsters even more hyped to see him stomp back onto the big screen.

The review embargo recently lifted for U.S. outlets, and Toho's latest outing for the iconic Kaiju has retained a perfect 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes - though it's worth noting that only 13 verdicts have been counted so far, so the score might well fluctuate as more are added.

Even so, this is obviously a very impressive start, and something none of Legendary's MonsterVerse movies have managed to accomplish.

During a recent interview, director Takashi Yamazaki revealed that he initially turned down the opportunity to helm the movie because he didn't feel the technology required to bring his vision for Godzilla to life was available to his team.

“I had been approached several times but turned it down until my team’s technology was capable of expressing the Godzilla I had envisioned. After seeing Shin Godzilla, my motivation increased, and my technology evolved considerably. I was once again formally approached and decided to give it a try.”

Check out a new poster below, and let us know if you plan on catching Minus One on the big screen.


Yamazaki previously outlined his original pitch for the project, while explaining that unusual title.

"Postwar Japan has lost everything. The film depicts an existence that gives unprecedented despair. The title Godzilla Minus One was created with this in mind. In order to depict this, the staff and I have worked together to create a setting where Godzilla looks as if "fear" itself is walking toward us, and where despair is piled on top of despair. I think this is the culmination of all the films I have made to date, and one that deserves to be "experienced" rather than "watched" in the theater. I hope you will experience the most terrifying Godzilla in the best possible environment."

Specific plot details are also still under wraps, but a (very) brief synopsis tells us that Godzilla: Minus One "sees an already devastated postwar Japan facing a new threat in the form of Godzilla." No sh*t!

The movie is set to debut in the U.K. and Ireland on December 15.

A very good friend runs their US office and she said it's fantastic - though of course she would. I'm hopeful this does well and bodes well for her.
Spidey91 - 11/23/2023, 7:41 PM
Not one of my local theatres is showing this one and I really want to see it, specially considering it's a legit japanese Godzilla, those don't happen too often.
KaptainKhaos - 11/23/2023, 7:58 PM
It's not playing in ANY of the theatres in ANY of the three cities with theatre chains on the island where I live and I'm absolutely devastated
marvel72 - 11/23/2023, 8:03 PM

Is Godzilla female and gay, though?
Waifuslayer - 11/23/2023, 8:23 PM

bobevanz - 11/23/2023, 8:26 PM
RT is worthless as a score, but that's doesn't matter. Early previews are in Dolby Cinema! I got the 29th woo hoo

This movie looks so good. Japan usually makes weird and poor production Godzilla movies (that I love). But this one actually looks legit great. Shin was weird and just a little too strange for me.
Godzilla2000Zer - 11/23/2023, 10:11 PM
Got my tickets for two showings. IMAX on the 29 and standard of Friday with my wife.
McMurdo - 11/23/2023, 11:41 PM
The Monarch show has been great too. Kurt and Wyatt are Rollin.
garu - 11/24/2023, 1:06 PM
@McMurdo - I just started it today - it's very interesting.
Matchesz - 11/23/2023, 11:55 PM

Gabimaru - 11/23/2023, 11:57 PM

xfactor - 11/24/2023, 12:09 AM

Lemons - 11/24/2023, 2:19 AM
I watched this. It's [frick]ing good. Did not expect to get emotional.
WhateverItTakes - 11/24/2023, 3:42 AM
Seeing this 17th can't wait
WhateverItTakes - 11/24/2023, 3:49 AM

dragon316 - 11/24/2023, 8:06 AM
One hundred percent that means it make billion easy , Still doesn’t mean nothing movie ratings by critics and rotten tomatoes gave avatar good high scores how many people this site saw avatar movies it’s persons preference depends how many Godzilla fans will choose see it

Saw it here this week. Japanese melodrama to the core, but the human drama is compelling for the two main characters; everyone else is pretty one-note. Plotting is solid, with a good balance of keeping G on the screen, and SFX are good for homegrown stuff. You feel it when the characters are in peril, which is a lot more than I can say for most of the recent lame-duck US attempts. If you're a fan of the genre it comes highly recommended.
