Godzilla-Mania Still Rocking Japan, Getting Ready to Roll Over USA!

The movie Shin Godzilla, aka Godzilla Resurgence in some Southeast Asian countries and parts of Europe, seems to have made quite an impression everywhere it goes.  Funimation will be distributing the motion picture in a limited release, similar to what they did with Anno's Rebuild of Evangelion anime movies. The film will be showing in US theaters October 11th-18th.
