While next year will see the release of Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, Toho has its own movie on the way featuring the King of the Monsters: Godzilla Minus One.

The first trailer just dropped and, if we're being completely honest, this looks better than each and every one of the MonsterVerse movies produced by Legendary Pictures. The newly released footage offers a much better idea of what fans can expect and what little we see of the kaiju is absolutely awesome (or should that be roar-some?).

Toho's first Godzilla movie since 2016's Shin Godzilla, one of that movie's VFX artists, Takashi Yamazaki, will take the helm of this epic tale. 

"Postwar Japan has lost everything. The film depicts an existence that gives unprecedented despair," Yamazaki recently revealed. "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."

While we know many of you would love to see a Legendary/Toho crossover, this take on Godzilla is completely separate from what that studio is working on. Legendary's upcoming projects include the aforementioned Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire and an Apple TV+ series we recently learned is titled Monarch: Legacy of Monsters.

"Set in a post-war Japan," reads an official description, "Godzilla Minus One will once again show us a Godzilla that is a terrifying and overwhelming force. The concept is that Japan, which had already been devastated by the war, faces a new threat with Godzilla, bringing the country into the 'minus.'"

Godzilla Minus One is the 37th film in the Godzilla franchise, Toho's 33rd Godzilla film, and the fifth film in the franchise's "Reiwa" era. It's set to be released in Japan on November 3 and will be unleashed in U.S. theaters on December 1.
