Funimation Films has released a Shin Godzilla (aka Godzilla: Resurgence) official US trailer to celebrate the fact that the Japanese sci-fi flick will be storming American shores in just about one month.

Toho’s new rebooted take on the giant movie monster is directed by Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi, and stars Hiroki Hasegawa, Yutaka Takenouchi, Satomi Ishihara, and Ren Ohsugi. The limited theatrical event will be in the US for just one week starting on October 11, in Japanese with English subtitles.

Watch the full-length trailer, which offers a stylish look at the iconic creature’s big screen return.

Make way for the ultimate homage to one of the most enduring legends of the big screen—Godzilla! The King of the Monsters is back in Tokyo for a city-crushing crusade that speaks to the very roots of the world-renowned franchise.

It’s a peaceful day in Japan when a strange fountain of water erupts in the bay, causing panic to spread among government officials. At first, they suspect only volcanic activity, but one young executive dares to wonder if it may be something different… something alive. His worst nightmare comes to life when a massive, gilled monster emerges from the deep and begins tearing through the city, leaving nothing but destruction in its wake. As the government scrambles to save the citizens, a rag-tag team of volunteers cuts through a web of red tape to uncover the monster’s weakness and its mysterious ties to a foreign superpower. But time is not on their side—the greatest catastrophe to ever befall the world is about to evolve right before their very eyes.
