Shin Godzilla has been a success as far as limited theatrical engagements are concerned, grossing more than $1.5million since its October 11 debut. As a result, Funimation announced plans to extend Godzilla's theatrical outing in North America, starting with the addition of a special Saturday matinee screening in over 200 theaters on October 22.
On top of that, multiple national theater chains will be screening Shin Godzilla daily through October 27. You can find out more details on these screenings and the Saturday matinee over at the official website.
Here's what Funimation President and CEO Gen Fukunaga had to say about it:
“We’re thrilled with the tremendous response to ‘SHIN GODZILLA’ from the press, audiences and our theatrical partners … Fans have been asking and we’re pleased to confirm that the movie will extend its run with this Saturday’s matinee as well as more than a week of daily screening.”
