While there may be a lot of anticipation for the May 31st release of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Netflix has just unleashed Godzilla: The Planet Eater, the third film in Toho's animated Godzilla trilogy that takes place in a distant future that features a death cult, robots, and colossal creatures.

If you're looking for a vastly different take on the massive radioactive reptile, or you're just looking for something to tide you over until King of the Monsters stomps into cinemas, then The Planet Eater may be just what you're looking for this winter.

We've included a trailer for the film below (via New Trailer Buzz), and head over to Netflix to check out the movie for yourself!
