It was only a few short months ago when we first shared the trailer for Toho Animation’s “Godzilla: City On The Edge Of Battle” (which you can see HERE if you missed it). The film opened in Japan back in May and now the US fans can enjoy it provided that they have a Netflix account. This film is available for streaming officially today. Below you can re-examine the premise and casting along with the poster.
The Plot: Following their crushing defeat at the hands of Godzilla Earth, Haruo Sakaki and his allies encounter a mysterious aboriginal tribe descended from the humans left behind on Earth 20,000 years ago, and uncover a mechanized city-sized fortress formed from the long-lost anti-Godzilla weapon Mechagodzilla.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: In my post about the trailer I admitted that I had not fully watched the preceding film so that means I will be holding off on this one for the time being. As you read this narrative we are all holding our breath in anticipation about the upcoming live-action film “Godzilla: King Of The Monsters” which will be released next year sometime. Please stay tuned to this website or our Facebook Page so you know when I broadcast about it.
