Blockbuster Monster Movie (超大作怪獣映画,   Chōtaisaku Kaijū Eiga) is the tentative title of an upcoming Japanese kaiju film produced by Toho and ROBOT.[1][2]

Development[edit | edit source]

The film was announced on February 17, 2022 (February 18 in Japan) through a casting call posted on production company ROBOT's website,[1] as well as the Godzilla+ application. Little is known of the film's premise beyond that it will involve kaiju and be set in post-war Japan, between 1945 and 1947.[1][2] The film will be directed by Takashi Yamazaki—who previously directed Godzilla in Always: Sunset on Third Street 2 and the Seibuen amusement park short film Godzilla the Ride: Giant Monsters Ultimate Battle[1]—and financed by Toho.[2] In August 2022, Shirogumi opened a recruiting call for effect designers and compositors; the call will close in January 2023 if capacity is not reached prior to then.[3]
