It has been months since we last reported on the Japanese monster film, "Deep Sea Monster Raiga." Here is what's been happening. The production has been plodding along in preparation for the films debut on June 27, 2009 at Ikebukuro’s Shin-Bungeiza theater as part of an all-night film event called “Tokusatsu Kaiju Tengoku” (SFX Monster Heaven). The event will not only feature the premiere of "Raiga" but also Masaaki Tezuka‘s, "Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.", and Keita Amemiya‘s film "Zeiram". After the premiere there is to be a 40 minute presentation by the cast and crew.
In preparation for the world premiere, the fist full-length trailer for "Deep Sea monster Raiga" has risen out of Tokyo Bay for all you Kaiju maniacs to enjoy.
I want to warn you, the clip starts out looking like a "Puffy Ami Yumi" video, featuring the vocal talents of the films three young leading ladies, Enosawa Manami, Urata Mao and Oriyama Miyu. Don't be fooled, the clip may start out like a J-Pop music video, but that only lasts about half a minute. The giant monster action comes directly after. Also don't be fooled by the monster, the head of Raiga may look exactly like the millennium Godzilla, but its an entirely different monster......really.
We have also included a bunch of movie stills for you to sink your teeth into (trailer after the photos):
