Japan is thrown into a panic after several ships are sunk near Odo Island. An expedition to the island led by Dr. Yemani soon discover something far more devastating than imagined in the form of a 50 meter tall monster whom the natives call Gojira. Now the monster begins a rampage that threatens to destroy not only Japan, but the rest of the world as well.

The iconic Godzilla monster is turning 67 years old, and to mark the occasion, the 4K restoration of his 1954 Gojira movie is coming to theatres! Godzilla is a cultural icon that has persisted for 67 years. While Godzilla has gone on to star in an entire host of films since his original appearance, the 1954 Gojira movie will always be regarded as a cinematic achievement.

“Godzilla continues its reign as King of the Monsters, transcending mere entertainment icons and embodying emotions and social issues reflective of the times,” said Keiji Ota, Chief Godzilla Officer. “It is timely that we introduce the world to this first 4K version of the original Godzilla film to honour the legacy of this globally recognized symbol to the strongest fanbase in the world.”
