Due to popular demand, Funimation is extending the theatrical run for Shin Godzilla through October 27th. The number of locations is limited, but you can check the official website to find theaters near you. Furthermore, a special Saturday matinee showing is taking place in over 200 theaters on October 22nd. The original run only intended to last from October 11th to the 18th.
Shin Godzilla is the latest film in the beloved franchise. Hideaki Anno, of Evangelion fame, wrote the film and directed it alongside Shinji Higuchi (live-action Attack on Titan films).
Funimation described the movie:
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.
