new Japanese Godzilla Movie

The 31st “Godzilla” Is Here!

What a way to kick of Shocktober day #11 – with a NEW Godzilla movie – and this time, he’s back with a whole new look!

First, check out the trailer!

Godzilla-Resurgence

Go Go Godzilla!

“Godzilla” is an icon in Japan – so much so that one of the hotels actually put the beast on its roof – the hotel where my son Jeff stayed when we were there in July!

The Hotel Gracery, located in Shinjuku’s Kabuki-Cho district, put the monster on top of the Hotel’s reception floor, and inside, you could get a closeup look at the beast, which Alex and I jumped at the chance to do:

A Wall Of Godzilla!

Also inside the lobby was an exhibit that had T-shirts, DVD of earlier films, and a wall that had posters of all 31 films, classic movie posters like these:

The latest Godzilla looks muscular and brawn, with just enough “retro” look to pay homage to what makes these films so iconic: wild plots with a mix of great action and campy special effects…

This fun “Godzilla” exhibit had me interested in seeing the new film, which opens July 25th in Japan…

I also had some other fun in Tokyo as well…

I also had a memorable meal at a restaurant that added a special treat: a live performance!

In addition to bento boxes, I also had the chance to have “sushi for breakfast!”

Finally, I came to Tokyo four times with G4, and one memorable visit saw our Host Alex Sim-Wise become an Astronaut’s wife:
