Widely considered the best monster movie of the sci-fi loving 1950s, GODZILLA: THE JAPANESE ORIGINAL returns! This 60th-anniversary restoration features scenes deleted from versions previously screened in the United States and coincides with a new Hollywood remake.
H-bomb testing stirs a 400-foot sea dragon who terrorizes Tokyo like a fire-breathing King Kong, crushing trains and swatting down fighter planes. The monster is rendered in “suitmation” by special-effects wizard Eiji Tsuburaya, and the added scenes showcase the performance of the monster’s human costar, Takashi Shimura, who portrayed the leader of Akira Kurosawa’s SEVEN SAMURAI later that year.
Japan, 1954, In Japanese with English subtitles, 96 min, Unrated, Directed by Ishirô Honda
