Gamera (ガメラ, Gamera?) is an upcoming tokusatsu kaiju film produced by Kadokawa Pictures that is to be tentatively released in 2015. It is set to be a reboot to the Gamera series and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the franchise.
This film's existence was revealed through the retailer Amiami, which listed that the May 16 2014 issue of Kadokawa's Tokusatsu Newtype magazine would be having a lead feature on the upcoming film.
On October 8, 2015, Kadokawa held a special 50th anniversary presentation for Gamera at New York Comic-Con, and officially revealed the film, showcasing several posters and a teaser trailer. The crowd in attendance received commemorative t-shirts for the film.
The trailer starts with a flashback to Tokyo ten years in the past. A young boy and his father are seen running from the swarms of Gyaos attacking the city. The boy's father pushes his son out of the way just before he is eaten by a Gyaos pursuing them. As the Gyaos prepares to consume the boy as well, Gamera smashes through a nearby building and steps on the Gyaos, crushing its skull and causing its eyeball to pop out (a reference to a scene from Gamera 3: Awakening of Irys). Gamera then turns to an approaching swarm of Gyaos and takes in a huge breath of air before unleashing a gigantic fireball that melts the flesh from the Gyaos' faces and destroys them. The trailer then skips ahead to Tokyo ten years later, where a new giant creature is devastating the city. Suddenly, Gamera appears once again to challenge the monster and roars just before the trailer cuts to a screen simply saying GAMERA.
The monsters in the trailer are all portrayed using computer generated imagery. Gamera's face closely resembles his 1999 incarnation, but the rest of his design is unique. His body features light brown skin, with a jagged bumpy shell. He has very thick bulky limbs and stands in a much more hunched-over posture than usual. Gamera also possesses his traditional roar, which was missing in Gamera: The Brave. The Gyaos resemble their Hyper Gyaos incarnations, but their skin color is reminiscent of their Showa and 1995 designs. The Gyaos possess a new roar, though they occasionally utter their classic screech. The new unnamed kaiju possesses at least four tentacles, two of which it can raise behind its body and fire a barrier from that destroys anything in its path.
