Despite making an epic cinematic return last year, Godzilla is officially back in his first Japanese adventure for over ten years. Godzilla: Resurgence will see the iconic monster return for Toho, the rights holders for the Japanese franchise. In the first official teaser release, we get to witness the mayhem brought upon what appears to be a kaiju attack (or is it Godzilla himself?) via a first person shaky handy cam perspective. Unfortunately there’s no monster to be seen this time, so we can only imagine what Godzilla will look like in this Toho production. Godzilla: Resurgence opens in cinemas end July 2016.
Hot Toys Batmobile
Fans of Batman may want to look into ordering Hot Toys’ latest work of art – the all-new Batmobile.

The 1/6th scale Batmobile features Gatling guns on the front hood and a highly-detailed interior and a slightly worn exterior which hints at a lot of action for Batman’s signature vehicle.
