Trivia:
There are six film directors who appear in this film - Kazuo Hara, Isshin Inudo, Suzuki Matsuo, Akira Ogata, Shin'ya Tsukamoto, and the late Kihachi Okamoto as a photo double

Despite receiving an official English title 'Godzilla Resurgence' the movie got released in the United States under its original Japanese title 'Shin Godzilla' by request from Toho

Toho plans to have the movie released in over 100 markets worldwide, making it their most widely distributed feature to date

Director Hideaki Anno told the actors to speak faster than usual so that they would resemble actual politicians and bureaucrats

An old-school Toho logo which appears at the beginning was re-created specifically for the widescreen of this movie

Godzilla was portrayed in motion capture by Mansai Nomura, a Kyogen actor, he had a 10-kilo weight strapped behind him and had incorporated traditional Japanese dance steps to enhance his performance

The day the people first encounter the titular monster was supposed to be November 3

Directors Shinji Higuchi and Hideaki Anno are longtime friends and have earlier collaborated on the popular anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion

'Shin Godzilla' is the first Toho-produced Godzilla film in 12 years since Godzilla: Final Wars

Writer and chief director Hideaki Anno initially refused Toho's initial offer to work on this film because of his work on the fourth Evangelion movie

Shinji Higuchi revealed that the Godzilla in this film will be brought to life by using a hybrid combination of computer generated imagery and traditional practical tokusatsu effects techniques

Unlike previous movies that were sequels, this is the first Japanese Godzilla movie to be a full reboot

Producer Akihiro Yamauchi stated that the title "Shin Gojira" was chosen for the film as the original title

Satomi Ishihara, who plays a Japanese-American diplomat claimed that the hardest part of her performance was learning English

Hiroki Hasegawa immediately accepted a role in the film

Godzilla's design in this film was mostly based on the design from the original film from 1954, and is intended to appear very frightening
