Andy has been writing for UK Anime since 2006, and was the site's editor-in-chief until August 2017.  Contrary to popular belief, Andy is not actually a robot.

We've heard a fair few stories behind the scenes regarding the license for Evangelion director Hideaki Anno's live-action reboot of Godzilla, known as Shin Godzilla, and thankfully we now finally have a proper UK theatrical release to look forward to with news leaking out that Manga Entertainment have acquired the film to bring to UK cinemas next month.

Thus, the film will be screening nationwide as a limited release from Thursday, 10th August - although this news hasn't yet been officially announced (which likely means that more screening locations are still to be added, so check back if there's nothing near you) you can already book tickets to the film via the official UK web site for the movie.

The film's synopsis reads as follows:

It's a peaceful day in Japan when a strange fountain of water erupts in the bay, causing panic to spread among government officials. At first, they suspect only volcanic activity, but one young executive dares to wonder if it may be something different - something alive. His worst nightmare comes to life when a massive, gilled monster emerges from the deep and begins tearing through the city, leaving nothing but destruction in its wake. As the government scrambles to save the citizens, a rag-tag team of volunteers cuts through a web of red tape to uncover the monster's weakness and its mysterious ties to a foreign superpower. But time is not on their side - the greatest catastrophe to ever befall the world is about to evolve right before their very eyes.

Will you be checking the film out in cinemas? Let us know in the comments!
