As Godzilla Minus One—io9's top movie of 2023—continues to chart incredible success at the box office, it’s about to present audiences with a whole new way to see the film. Tickets are now on sale for Godzilla Minus One/Minus Color, a gorgeously stark, newly remastered black and white version of the hit film.
Minus Color opened in Japan last week, and Toho International is bringing it to U.S. theaters for one week only starting January 26. No matter where you are (Japan or the U.S.), you’ll need to get to the theater by February 1 to see this special release.
“Godzilla Minus One/Minus Color is not just a simple black and white version. Our colorist took the time and care to go through a very meticulous and complex process,” he said. “The black-and-white images make Godzilla look very realistic and documentary-like, which leads to even more fear. Even though we have seen Godzilla Minus One many times, we felt that something completely different appeared here—and it’s very scary! So this is not only for those who liked Godzilla Minus One but also those who are seeing it for the first time—they should definitely see this black-and-white version. Especially the scene at the beginning where Godzilla appears in the night—it is so terrifying that it made my knees shake!”
Here’s a new trailer to commemorate the release, followed by a couple of stunning new posters:
