Thn’s Godzilla Countdown #22: Godzilla Vs. Destroyah (1995)

On 16th May 2014, Toho’s greatest monster will return to the big screen in an American reboot. With just 8 weeks to go, we here at Thn are counting down the Godzilla back catalogue.

Director: Takao Okawara,

Starring: Takuro Tatsumi, Yoko Ishino, Yasufumi Hayashi, Megumi Odaka, Sayaka Osawa, Saburo Shinoda, Akira Nakao, Masahiro Takashima, Momoko Kochi

Plot: A new theory suggests that Godzilla could explode in a terrifying nuclear breakdown. As humanity thinks of a way to save itself, a new villain also arrives as creatures mutated by the original Oxygen Destroyer begin to take over the land.

This is the end, at least until the next series of films came about a few years later. However, at the time this was expected to be Godzilla’s final bow for Toho until his 50th anniversary in 2004. Why? Because a little place known as Hollywood had acquired the rights for a trilogy of their own Godzilla movies.
