Mothra vs. Godzilla remastered DVD availabe soon from this exclusive link
27th Oct 06
This press release arrived today, and because I love movies where guys in big rubber suits beat the hell out of each other while stomping on a miniature Tokyo, I thought I'd share it with you...
Godzilla Raids Again This sequel to the original and hugely successful Godzilla was rushed to the theaters six months after the release of the first film. Two new monsters emerged: the first similar to the original Godzilla that was killed by the oxygen destroyer in the first film, and also named Godzilla, the second a spiny dinosaur called Anguirus. The massive battle begins on Iwato Island, tumbles into the ocean, and resurfaces on Osaka, threatening to level the city under the monsters’ rage.
Mothra vs. Godzilla aka Godzilla vs. The Thing Originally released in the US as Godzilla vs. The Thing, this fourth installment in the Godzilla series is considered by many fans as one of the best of the series. When a giant egg washes up on the shores of Tokyo after a typhoon, greedy businessmen seize the opportunity to exhibit the item at an amusement park for profit. The shobijin, fairies from Infant Island, come to plea for the egg’s return to its rightful owner, Mothra, but the men refuse the request. Soon Godzilla awakens and begins a trek across Tokyo, heading straight for Mothra’s egg. Can Mothra save her offspring from the destruction of Godzilla? Can Tokyo survive this epic monster battle?
While the retail release of two highly anticipated Godzilla films Godzilla Raids Again and Mothra v. Godzilla has been rescheduled from November 7th, 2006 to the Spring of 2007, both films will still be available on November 7th exclusively at www.godzillaondvd.com. Each title will include both the original Japanese and US version of the films; special features will include audio commentaries, featurettes, poster slide shows and English subtitles for the Japanese versions.
