Shin Ultraman is a 2021 Japanese tokusatsu fantasy film about an alien that transformed a human being to protect the Earth from monsters. The movie is a modern reworking of the classic 1960s series and its 1970s spin-offs.
Co-directed by Hideaki Anno (Shin Godzilla; Neon Genesis Evangelion) and Shinji Higuchi (Gamera trilogy visual effects) from a screenplay written by Hideaki Anno and Higuchi. Produced by Toho Pictures, Tsuburaya Productions, Khara Corporation, and Cine Bazar. Shin Ultraman stars Takumi Saitoh, who eventually becomes the human host of Ultraman, with Masami Nagasawa and Hidetoshi Nishijima.
Shin Ultraman will be released in Japanese cinemas early in the Summer.
The new Ultraman design is based on a 1983 Ultraman painting ‘Incarnation of Truth, Justice and Beauty’ by Tohl Narita.
