The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Japan, devastated after World War II, is at its lowest point when a new crisis emerges in the form of a giant monster, baptised in the horrific power of the atomic bomb.

Godzilla Minus One, the latest in the beloved kaiju franchise – and from the original Toho Studios (now in the "Reiwa" era) – is the first among many sequels to be set entirely in the period of the 1954 original film.

Returning the king of monsters to its roots as a metaphor for Japan's postwar anxiety and grief, Godzilla Minus One has been critically-acclaimed since its release in Japan and is considered to be one of the strongest Gojira stories in years.
