Shin Godzilla sent many people to the theaters as soon as it was released on July 29 because of its impressive scenes and realistic details.
As of November 16, the viewers reached 5.51 million and the box-office revenue exceeded 8 billion JPY.
Shin Godzilla is the first Japanese live action movie to reach the 8 billion JPY milestone since Eien no Zero which was released on December 21, 2013. The final box office revenue of Eien no Zero was 8.76 billion JPY.
The ongoing movie Shin Godzilla has drawn an audience of various ages. Many people are going to see the movie for the second or even the third time, so it is possible that Shin Godzilla will exceed Eien no Zero.
