You may have only just seen last year's reboot of Godzilla, but we've got another on the way next year. Although this time, things might be a bit different.

The 2016 reboot of Godzilla will in fact come from Toho, the studio behind the original 1954 Japanese monster classic, and it seems (like many fans) they were not too happy with Gareth Edwards' reboot of the character either. The studio recently released a new teaser poster, and also included a statement which claimed, "the time has come to make a film that will not bow down to the Hollywood film." Check it out below:

This will be the first Godzilla movie Toho has handled for 12 years, although this one claims to be a reboot rather than a sequel. This is probably a good idea, since the Toho Godzilla movies began to go to some rather odd places in their later iterations - I'm looking at you Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla. Starting the lore all over again means they won't have to deal with the unwieldy Godzilla world they have created since. Hopefully, their's will be more in keeping with the feel and themes of the 1954 original.

To remind yourself of that, check out the original trailer below:

More details, hopefully including the release date, will be unleashed at this year's 2015 Godzi-Con.
