SHIN ULTRAMAN

シン・ウルトラマン

One of Japan’s most revered tokusatsu series of all time gets a shiny reimagining from creative titans Hideaki Anno (EVANGELION) and Shinji Higuchi (ATTACK ON TITAN) with SHIN ULTRAMAN. With updated special effects and a bigger budget, headlined by Japan’s biggest stars Takumi Saitoh (HIFF 2018 Maverick Award honoree), Masami Nagasawa, and Hidetoshi Nishijima (DRIVE MY CAR), SHIN ULTRAMAN has it all (to paraphrase SNL’s Stefon)–human and alien collaborations, satirical jabs at Japanese bureaucracy, classic rapid-fire technobabble, odd camera framing, and campy bravura that made the original series so iconic.

Anno and Higuchi (already godfathers that have shaped modern Japanese pop and otaku culture since their start in the ’90s) are paying homage to classic Japanese franchises with their “Shin” series of films, following the success of SHIN GODZILLA (2016) and next year’s highly anticipated SHIN KAMEN RIDER. In a world of reboots and remakes, SHIN ULTRAMAN is a worthy update and homage that both new and old school fans can enjoy!

Actor Takumi Saitoh will be in attendance for the NOV 13 screening of the film.
