The poster features the tagline "Who will be eradicated? Man or Godzilla?" The English language title for the film is Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters.

Toho has released a teaser trailer for Godzilla: Kaiju (Monster) Planet and we also have our first reveal of a kaiju in the film, Servum. Check out the new kaiju below along with the trailer and a still of Godzilla shown as well.
Subspecies organism of Godzilla discovered by Earth landing troops. Name of the classification "Servum". 97% agree with Godzilla's cell data collected at 2032 nuclear attack that mankind did against Godzilla before the Escape. Similar to Godzilla, living tissues very closely resembling metals have the property of generating strong electromagnetic force. Two types of flightable flight Servum and worm type crawling on the ground have been confirmed, the flight type is worm type, the worm type supplements smaller species, forming a food chain.
