With Tokyo under siege from rising monster attacks, baseball star Ken Sato reluctantly returns home to take on the mantle of Ultraman. But the titanic superhero meets his match when he is forced to adopt a 35-foot-tall, fire-breathing baby kaiju.

“Our team has worked hard to craft a story that fans and non-fans of this iconic character can enjoy,” said director Shannon Tindle and co-director John Aoshima. “Ultraman: Rising is a film for everyone. It’s a funny, action-packed popcorn movie that tackles family, identity, and the struggle to maintain balance in an insane world.

“This June, we hope you’ll gather ’round with the folks you love to see what happens when a titanic superhero rediscovers the power of family thanks to an unlikely ally – a sweet, 35-foot-tall, fire-breathing baby kaiju.”
