Following on the heels of Toho’s newest Godzilla film, and a new Ultraman film, the friend to all children(?) is also returning, bringing with him a bit of the badass that showed up in the 90s trilogy.

The trailer also features perennial Gamera foe, the Gyaos, as well as some sort of tentacled beastie. The Kaneko trilogy are widely regarded as legitimately great films and this film seems to bring back some of that bleak tone (after a more child-friendly Gamera the Brave in 2006) with realistic reactions to particularly gruesome monster attacks.
