Shin Godzilla’s Director Had To Produce A ‘Radio Drama’ Version Of The Movie To Get It Made



The whole thing came in at just 97 minutes. “With the action scenes, plus the end credits, it came in at two hours. That convinced me a little bit,” Yamauchi added.

Indeed, a big part of the appeal of “Shin Godzilla,” and what makes it such a unique movie in the 70-year-old franchise, is its satirical tone and fast-paced, quick-witted dialogue. Most of the film is spent on emergency board and committee meetings where government officials discuss what to do about the threat of Godzilla … and take too long to actually do anything about it.

This movie is all about bureaucratic red tape and the response to a disaster, be it a natural one or a giant monstrous lizard destroying Tokyo. At times, it even resembles one of Armando Iannucci’s movie satires in its approach to politics and witty dialogue. But, of course, this is still a Godzilla movie, and “Shin Godzilla” delivers the goods. Anno gives the iconic kaiju different forms throughout the movie, a then-controversial move that has proven influential, with shows like “Godzilla: Singular Point” and the recent “Godzilla: Minus One” continuing the trend of making Godzilla evolve during the film.
