With Godzilla Minus One hitting Japan early, fans across the globe are looking for spoilers from the movie. Here’s all we know about the movie from the trailers and other rumors so far.
What are the Godzilla Minus One spoilers?
Separate from all past entries
Even though the latest Toho Godzilla movie is the 33rd entry for the character, it is separate from all Godzilla entries of the past. The movie is set in a new continuity and could span a new cinematic universe if it turns out to be successful.
The official description suggests that “after the war, Japan’s economic state has been reduced to zero. Godzilla appears and plunges the country into a negative state.”
The monster wreaks havoc across the country and makes its situation even worse.
Godzilla isn’t a savior
As the trailers, synopsis, and rumors suggest, Godzilla does not come in as a savior. This is a mutated version of the character who is rumored to be woken up by an atomic bomb. He is angry and comes to Japan to cause total annihilation. He isn’t the protector we’ve known him to be in the recent MonsterVerse movies of Hollywood.
Godzilla uses his atomic breath
Something that’s pretty clear in the trailers is that Godzilla will be seen using his atomic breath toward the final act of the film. He won’t be holding any punches.
The Two Godzillas Rumor
A common rumor being spread around on social media and forums is that there will be two Godzillas in the film. One would be the aforementioned angry Godzilla mutated by an atomic bomb, while the other would be a more natural Godzilla who shows up to stop the mutated version. However, this piece of information needs to be taken with a grain of salt as it doesn’t come from any official source.
The cast of Godzilla
Godzilla Minus One features a stellar Japanese cast, including Ryunosuke Kamiki as Koichi Shikishima and Yuki Yamada as Shiro Mizushima. Others involved are Munetaka Aoki as Sosaku Tachibana, Minami Hamabe as Noriko Oishi, Sakura Ando as Sumiko Ota, Hidetaka Yoshioka as Kenji Nada, and Kuranosuke Sasaki as Yoji Akitsu.
Godzilla Minus One opens in Japan on November 3, 2023. It will be released on December 1, 2023, in the U.S.
