Godzilla: Resurgence is Coming to U.S. Thanks to Funimation

Earlier this week, we saw a new trailer for Toho's Godzilla: Resurgence, but it didn't mention any plans for any U.S. release. But during the Funimation panel at Comic-Con on Thursday, it was announced that it Shin Godzilla will make his way to the states. Gen Fukunaga, CEO and President of Funimation, said this in a statement:

"Funimation is extremely pleased to be working with Toho to bring Shin Godzilla to audiences across the Americas. Godzilla became a science fiction icon from the moment Toho brought it to the big screen in 1954. We're honored to be a part of its rich history."

Here's what Mike DuBoise, EVP and COO of Funimation, said:

"Shin Godzilla represents a brand new chapter in the 62-year history of this iconic science fiction monster. We're excited to bring audiences this new vision of Godzilla from Toho as reimagined by directors Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi."

This will be the 29th Godzilla film by Toho, and the version of the King of Monsters appears to be the biggest yet.

Godzilla: Resurgence was directed by Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi, who directed the live-action Attack on Titan films. The film will be releaesed in Japan on July 29.
