    Toho has announced that, in addition to screening in the premium large formats MX4D, 4DX, DolbyCinema and IMAX, GODZILLA MINUS ONE (ゴジラ-1.0/ゴジラマイナスワン, Gojira Mainasu Wan) will also be available to view in the three-sided multi-projection film projection system "ScreenX" in select Japanese cinemas.  With ScreenX, the film image is projected on the center screen plus two side screens, allowing the viewer to watch movies from a 270-degree field of vision, providing a realistic experience that immerses the viewer in the world of the film.*

    In this film, Godzilla's approach can be felt on the left and right screens even before he appears, further emphasizing his overwhelming presence.

    Director Takashi Yamazaki has praised seeing GODZILLA MINUS ONE in ScreenX...

    ``The width of the field of view is a key factor in whether a person can immerse themselves in the world of a film. The screen that spreads from side to side, covering 270 degrees of the field of view, gave the illusion that one was in the world of this movie. FAnd then there is the fear that looms from the corner of your eye! The information coming in from the sides of your vision messes with your brain in a good way.”

    Adding to the fun, GODZILLA MINUS ONE will also be screened on the "4DXScreen", a fusion of 4DX and ScreenX, at some theaters. This combination will allow  viewers to simultaneously feel the realism of 4DX through synchronized motion seats and other effects along with the immersion of ScreenX to directly experience the terror of Godzilla's approach.

    With the addition of ScreenX and 4DXScreen, GODZILLA MINUS ONE becomes the only Japanese film to be shown in six premium large screen formats.

    Toho encourages Japanese  moviegoers to experience this film on a large format screen!
