In the booklet of the German DVD there is talk of roughly 40 minutes of additional footage in the US Version, thus making it the Godzilla movie with the most extensive editing for Western audiences. However, the details about the difference in time are a little overstated... Still, the last statement could be true. On the one hand, in the US Version there is an entirely new News/TV segment which gives the movie a pseudo-documental touch. They mostly used Western actors, which was probably supposed to be more appealing for local audiences. Additionally, there is some more background information about Godzilla, while other scenes just get explained via the TV segments. On the other hand, the Japanese Version goes a little deeper into the storyline of Mr. Tako who is craving for better ratings as well as the relationship between Osamu's sister Fumiko and Fujita - most of the shortening in the US Version affected these storylines. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
