October 18, 2016. Godzilla, King of the Monsters, has taken over North America. The limited theatrical engagement of “SHIN GODZILLA” was scheduled to close tonight but in the wake of overwhelming fan response, Funimation Films announced that the movie will be extended due to popular demand. A special Saturday matinee screening of the film will take place on October 22 in more than 200 theaters across the U.S. and Canada. In addition, multiple national theater chains will be offering daily screenings of “SHIN GODZILLA” in select locations thru October 27. A complete list of locations for both this Saturday’s matinee as well as the new daily screenings is available via a theater locator on the official film website.

“We’re thrilled with the tremendous response to ‘SHIN GODZILLA’ from the press, audiences and our theatrical partners,” said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and President of Funimation. “Fans have been asking and we’re pleased to confirm that the movie will extend its run with this Saturday’s matinee as well as more than a week of daily screening.”

“SHIN GODZILLA” hit $1M mark at the box office in its first three days and has grossed more than $1.5M since opening on October 11.  It is the 29th film produced by Toho Co., Ltd. in the iconic science fiction monster franchise and is co-directed by Hideaki Anno (creator of “Evangelion”) and co- directed by Shinji Higuchi (director of Toho’s 2015 “Attack on Titan” live action movies).

“We were confident that ‘SHIN GODZILLA’ would be a hit with audiences and we’re excited to extend its theatrical run to keep up with fan demand,” said Mike DuBoise, EVP and COO of Funimation. “If you haven’t seen ‘SHIN GODZILLA’ yet or want to catch an encore before it leaves theaters – now is the time.”
