Toho, the company behind the creation of Godzilla, has announced a new film starring the King of Monsters set to release on November 3, 2023.
Takashi Yamazaki will direct the new Godzilla. The filmmaker has previously helmed Lupin III: The First, Parayste Part 1 and Part 2, and Dragon Quest: Your Story. This will be Yamazaki's first time directing a Godzilla film.

The new film marks Toho's first Godzilla movie since 2016's Shin Godzilla. In our Shin Godzilla review, we said the movie, "provides a new origin for the legendary kaiju, establishing its own unique style while taking inspiration from the classics in all the right ways." The untitled 2023 Godzilla film marks the 33rd Toho Godzilla movie, and the 37th Godzilla movie overall.
On the American side of things, Warner Bros, and Legendary Pictures are working on a MonsterVerse sequel to 2021's Godzilla vs. Kong. The follow-up will see Godzilla and King Kong team up to fight "a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world".
