First Poster and Teaser Trailer for Japanese 2016 Toho film Godzilla: Resurgence

The 2014 American Godzilla reboot was a huge success.  It finished its global run in theaters with a worldwide total of $528 million making it the fourteenth highest grossing film of 2014 worldwide.  Deadline.com estimated that the film made a profit of $52.477 million!  Which is surprising since it almost didn't happen considering how protective Toho (the Japanese company that owns and created Godzilla) is about it's property, especially after the 1998 American film by Roland Emmerich was panned by critics.  I have a feeling that Toho underestimated how well the 2014 Legendary film would do, and decided to prove that they can make a film just as great if not better.  Toho has announced that Godzilla Resurgence will be released July 29, 2016 and they just put out the first poster and teaser trailer for it.  There's no glimpse of Godzilla in the trailer below unfortunately, but you can tell from the poster above that they are going for a much more horrific look than previous designs. Stay tuned for more news as they are released.
