Wow, Hideaki Anno is co-directing it? Might be the kind of detail to mention in the first post :P

Huh....I didn't notice a connection before, but Godzilla is sorta like the God Warrior in Nausicaa, which Anno animated....

I actually intended to go back and add that after you mentioned it, but I forgot to. :oops:

So that's legit? I saw the news on April 1st, so I dismissed it, honestly.

I dug a bit, and ultimately came across this blog post with what certainly looks like a translation of the Japanese article with the interviews (I can tell because it reads like a non-broken version of what Google translates the page as :-P ), and the comments there indicate it was announced on March 31st in Japan's time; which matches what else I've been able to determine.

So if this is an April Fool's joke, someone has some serious explaining to do :-P

Ah, that's cool then. Should be pretty cool. Always wanted to see Godzilla vs. Unit 01.

Well here's a trailer, and...yup, that is most definitely Anno's direction (note the tank turret swivel shot).

Also Godzilla looks truly horrifying.



The title, by the way, is Godzilla: Resurgence.
