Godzilla continues to stomp the box office into 2024! Toho’s blockbuster sensation has continued to captivate audiences in the UK & Ireland, where it has surpassed £2 Million to become the third-highest grossing territory for the global phenomenon, following Japan and the United States. The film that everybody’s talking about, Godzilla Minus One is playing now in cinemas, IMAX, 4DX, ScreenX and Dolby Cinema screens.
In our five-star review of the film James says “Godzilla Minus One is a gigantic triumph that encapsulates Godzilla’s legacy beautifully, while also offering a very human & sincere story. With gobsmacking visuals that exceed some of the effects we’ve seen this year, Godzilla makes his return in the biggest and best way possible. This film is the true epitome of a blockbuster. Not only is Minus One a perfect monster movie, it’s also a fantastic film that has plenty to offer besides destruction.”
Celebrating seventy-years of being a cultural and cinema icon, Godzilla Minus One was crafted to be the most terrifying incarnation of the character yet, returning the series to its postwar roots with a powerful and poignant story about a Japan gripped by the helplessness of having already lost everything before this new, monstrous threat emerges. When despair is piled on top of despair, will the people be able to survive, nevermind fight back?
Godzilla Minus One broke multiple UK & Irish box office records on release, with the largest opening day for a Japanese film (live-action and animated) in over 23 years, leading it to become the highest-ever grossing Japanese live-action film in the UK & Ireland. The film has also received acclaim from critics and fans alike. Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with 98% for both the critics and audience scores, the film is “a gargantuan and resonant epic” according to Neil Smith of Total Film, with Jack Bottomley of Starburst Magazine calling it “a thunderous, profound, and exciting cinema experience that is absolutely not to be missed!”.
