Is 2016 The Year That 'Godzilla Resurgence' And Gamera Battle It Out At The Box Office?

Jon Mark

We're now living in a world years past the end of the Mayan calendar. Biff is running for president and America finally redeemed itself with the release of Godzilla in 2014.

It's already been 10 years since Gamera was in a movie with Gamera The Brave in 2006.

Gamera fans wouldn't care as much if it hadn't been for a teaser put together by an ambitious filmmaker, released during the monster's 50th anniversary late last year.


Reports on this suggest that the teaser was to prepare fans for a new upcoming film. In the meantime, the Toho owners of the Godzilla creature have capitalized on their 2014 success and teased with a new Japanese-made film which, according to Scified, New World Cinemas is trying to get them to release in the States this year.

Could this be the year we've waited 50 years to see Gamera Vs. Godzilla battling it out at the box-office?

For those not familiar with the gigantic atomic turtle, Gamera is more recognized as the lesser-than Kaiju against Godzilla, but is equally entertaining and has been around for almost as long.

The IMDb pages hardly show anything and are at the very least a little confusing.

For instance, the page for the trailer mentioned is certainly there, but the others either have question marks in the title or a copy of some of the same details from the one already referred to.

Some are saying that the producers are waiting to see how Resurgence does before they dip their toe in.

Godzilla Resurgence is scheduled to start stomping in July which leaves some months before the year is over for Gamera to enter, knowing better than to be in the way.
