A raucous, rip-roaring kaiju film, awash with cosmic twists, campy villains and giants of all species. From the creators of Shin Godzilla and Neon Genesis Evangelion.
When Japan's SSSP kaiju defence taskforce finds itself in the midst of a particularly challenging kaiju encounter, a giant silver robot descends from the sky to rescue the country. Dubbed Ultraman, this robot’s identity and purpose are a mystery. As further alien forces arrive on earth, the taskforce, led by Kimio Tamura (Hidetoshi Nishijima, Drive My Car
, SFF 2021), attempt to identify their true intentions. Mixing the optimistic retro-futurism of the ’60s television show with modernist pop-art aesthetics, Shin Ultraman
is destined for future cult classic status, a delightful reimagining of one of Japan’s classic superheroes with a healthy dose of large-scale city-smashing combat to leave you cheering.
