Set in postwar Japan, the critically acclaimed film sees Godzilla bring new devastation to an already scorched landscape. With no military intervention or government help in sight, the survivors must join together in the face of despair and fight back against an unrelenting horror.

From renowned director, screenwriter & VFX visionary Takashi Yamazaki (The Eternal Zero, Stand By Me Doraemon) comes a film about the power of home in the face of despair. The film stars Ryunosuke Kamiki, Minami Hamabe, Yuki Yamada, Munetaka Aoki, Hidetaka Yoshioka, Sakura Ando, and Kuranosuke Sasaki, with music by Naoki Sato.

As the latest domestic Japanese Godzilla film since the popular Shin Godzilla in 2016, Godzilla Minus One became the first Japanese movie to win the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects. This also marked the first time a Godzilla film was recognized by the Academy in its 70-year franchise history.

The movie also garnered a list of impressive accolades, including numerous critics’ groups awards for Best Visual Effects and Best Film. It was named Best International Film at the prestigious Lumière Awards, which honors outstanding achievements in the creation of immersive storytelling.

The film also won eight Japan Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
