After getting rave reviews when it roared into theaters in Japan last month, Godzilla Minus One is set for release in the U.S. on December 1st, and an exciting new clip from Toho's movie has now been shared online via Fandango.

In this sneak peek, we see the King of the Monsters tearing through the waves as he chases down a seriously ill-equipped looking fishing boat. A harpoon is readied as the clip ends, but something tells us that's not going to be quite enough to stop the legendary Kaiju.

During a recent interview with Deadline, director Takashi Yamazaki revealed that he initially turned down the opportunity to helm the movie because he didn't feel the technology required to bring his vision for Godzilla to life was available to his team.

“I had been approached several times but turned it down until my team’s technology was capable of expressing the Godzilla I had envisioned. After seeing Shin Godzilla, my motivation increased, and my technology evolved considerably. I was once again formally approached and decided to give it a try.”

Check out the clip at the link below, and let us know if you plan on catching Minus One on the big screen.

Yamazaki previously outlined his original pitch for the project, while explaining that unusual title.

"Postwar Japan has lost everything. The film depicts an existence that gives unprecedented despair. The title Godzilla Minus One was created with this in mind. In order to depict this, the staff and I have worked together to create a setting where Godzilla looks as if "fear" itself is walking toward us, and where despair is piled on top of despair. I think this is the culmination of all the films I have made to date, and one that deserves to be "experienced" rather than "watched" in the theater. I hope you will experience the most terrifying Godzilla in the best possible environment."

Specific plot details are also still under wraps, but a (very) brief synopsis tells us that Godzilla: Minus One "sees an already devastated postwar Japan facing a new threat in the form of Godzilla." No sh*t!

The movie is set to debut in the U.K. and Ireland on December 15.
