Godzilla

2 New Godzilla DVD’s Stomp Their Way Into Your Homes!

Sony Tri-Star Entertainment is finally releasing 2 of the 4 Godzilla movies produced after Godzilla 2000. Yup, since G2K came our way in 1999, they’ve managed to produce one Godzilla flick per year!

On January 27 they are releasing the 24th & 25th Godzilla movies (yes, really, that many! ) Godzilla vs. Megaguirus (2000) and Godzilla, Mothra & King Ghidora: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (2001)

Here is the complete* list of Godzilla films, because you know you can’t sleep without it!

Just to be confusing, featured titles given are the official Toho English title, even though some titles were never used for an American version. Those listed below are various titles from theatrical releases, video/DVD releases and/or translation of the Japanese title. When two years are given, the first is the Japanese Theatrical release date, the second the American. (Title source material: G-FAN Magazine; The Official Godzilla Compendium, by J.D. Lees and Mark Cerasini; The Internet Movies Database at http://www.imdb.com/)
