New trailers for Shin Ultraman have been revealed, alongside a new plot synopsis for the film.
On April 15, a new teaser trailer for the upcoming Shin Ultraman was released online. The new trailer has presented fans with numerous new reveals, including a tease of Kenshi Yonzeu’s theme song.
That same day, another 82-second-long trailer started playing in theatres across Japan. It soon came to YouTube on the 18th.
A special preview video is also being shown at the Hideaki Anno Exhibition. In addition to all the footage, a new plot synopsis for the film was also revealed by Tsuburaya.
The continued appearance of giant unidentified lifeforms known as “S-Class Species” has become commonplace in Japan.
Conventional weapons have no effect on them. Having exhausted all other options, the Japanese Government issued the S-Class Species Suppression Protocol and formed an enforcement unit, known as the SSSP.
The members chosen for the unit are: Leader Fumio Tamura (played by Hidetoshi Nishijima), Executive Strategist Shinji Kaminaga (played by Takumi Saitoh), Unparticle Physicist Taki Akihisa (played by Daiki Arioka), and Universal Biologist Yume Funaberi (Akari Hayami)
As the threat of S-Class Species worsens, a silver giant appears from beyond Earth’s atmosphere.
Analyst Hiroko Asami (played by Masami Nagasawa) is newly appointed to the SSSP to deal with this giant and is partnered with Shinji Kaminaga.
In Hiroko’s report, she writes…
“Ultraman (tentative name), identity unknown”.
Shin Ultraman is slated to release nationwide in Japanese theatres on May 13, 2022.
