Film Synopsis

An independent group of researchers actively track Godzilla as a giant meteor is discovered. The mysterious rock begins to levitate as its true intentions for the world and Godzilla are revealed.

    It has razor sharp teeth in a gargantuan mouth; claws that can cut through steel; a roar that echoes back through the centuries; dorsal fins that resemble crimson lightning bolts; and fiery breath that incinerates everything it comes into contact with. Soon, all in the creature's wake is utterly destroyed, and a terrified Japan can only wonder where this monstrous beast will next appear. Godzilla, king of the monsters, is back.
