Rock Musician Kenshi Yonezu will be performing the film’s Opening Theme titled “M87 (Original Title: M八七).” A synopsis has been revealed for the film, which is listed below:

The continued appearance of giant unidentified lifeforms known as “S-Class Species” has become commonplace in Japan.

Conventional weapons have no effect on them. Having exhausted all other options, the Japanese Government issued the S-Class Species Suppression Protocol and formed an enforcement unit, known as the SSSP.

The members chosen for the unit are: Leader Fumio Tamura (played by Hidetoshi Nishijima), Executive Strategist Shinji Kaminaga (played by Takumi Saitoh), Unparticle Physicist Taki Akihisa (played by Daiki Arioka), and Universal Biologist Yume Funaberi (Akari Hayami)

As the threat of S-Class Species worsens, a silver giant appears from beyond Earth’s atmosphere.

Analyst Hiroko Asami (played by Masami Nagasawa) is newly appointed to the SSSP to deal with this giant and is partnered with Shinji Kaminaga.

In Hiroko’s report, she writes… “Ultraman (tentative name), identity unknown”.


The film will be released on May 13th, 2022, and will be produced by Neon Genesis Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno, who will also be handling the scripts. Shinji Higuchi directed the Attack on Titan live-action films, and Shin Godzilla is helming Shin Ultraman along with his Higuchi-Gumi Team. Shin Ultraman will also be part of a special collaboration project titled “The Shin Japan Heroes Universe Project“.
