Manga Entertainment today announced that Shin Godzilla‘s UK theatrical release has been extended across the UK and Ireland, from 40 to now 100 sites when it roars into cinemas on 10th August for one night only.
The increase in sites and screenings comes from the fantastic fan support of the iconic science fiction monster’s latest outing from Toho Company, Ltd. Tickets for the film are now available for pre-purchase on the official film website, shingodzillamovie.co.uk.
Co-directed by Hideaki Anno (creator of Evangelion) and Shinji Higuchi (director of Toho’s 2015 Attack on Titan live action movies), Shin Godzilla is the 29th Godzilla film produced by Toho and represents a brand new chapter in the 62-year history of this celebrated movie monster. The film stars Hiroki Hasegawa and Satomi Ishihara – both also from the Attack on Titan live action movies – as well as Yutaka Takenouchi.
Shin Godzilla has been a big hit in Japan since its opening on 29th July 2016, which garnered a box office of ¥ 845,675,500 and total audience of 564,332 during its first three days. To date in Japan, the movie has grossed ¥ 8,200,000,000 at the box office. The film also received its North American theatrical release in October 2016, and has grossed $1,918,403 in the US and Canada.
