The director dropped by New York Comic Con to show off the Gamera trailers.


To celebrate the kaiju’s 50th anniversary, writer/director Katsuhito Ishii joined producers Shinichiro Inoue and Tsuyoshi Kikuchi in New York to show off the proof-of-concept trailer they put together for the flying turtle’s return to the big screen.

They announced that the film’s effects would be CGI, and they are looking forward to a 2016 release date at the earliest. The producers cited the success of recent kaiju films like Pacific Rim and the 2014 Godzilla as inspiration for Gamera’s return. Ishii is known for being the animation director for the anime segment of Kill Bill vol.1, and the writer of the anime film Redline.
