Driving the news: Toho released the trailer of “Godzilla Minus One/Minus Color” on Wednesday, teasing what fans can expect in a classic-looking refresh of its latest movie.
About the re-release:
Writer and director Takashi Yamazaki has explained that they have been working on a black-and-white re-release “for a long time,” as per Bloody Disgusting
. Yamazaki said he asked the production to make adjustments to the movie using “various mattes as if they were creating a new movie.”
“What I was aiming for was a style that looked like it was taken by masters of monochrome photography,” he said. “By eliminating color, a new sense of reality emerges.”
