July 25, 2016, Tokyo, Japan: Stage hands and movie studio employees prepare Godzilla for the red carpet ceremony of "Godzilla Resurgence" (Japanese title "Shin Godzilla") taking place later in the evening. Co-directed by Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi, this film will be released nationwide in Japan on July, 29, 2016. This is the 29th Toho Co. Ltd. Godzilla release, but there are 31 films in this franchise with the other two made overseas. This took place in Tokyo's Kabuki-cho district where Toho opened a multi cinema complex in 2014. They now hold all their premiers and red carpets at this location. The first Godzilla film was released by Toho in 1954, but in 2004 the studio announced an end to the film series. In 2014, on the 60th anniversary of Godzilla films, Toho announced production of a Godzilla "re-boot", slated for release in 2016. Godzilla Resurgence stars actors Hiroki Hasegawa, Yutaka Takenouchi and Satomi Ishihara. This will be released overseas in Autumn 2016. (Torin Boyd/Polaris).
