A greedy developer has placed huge machines to suck dry a part of the ocean near Tokyo so he can put luxury condos there. After a storm, a giant egg washes up on the beach nearby and is immediately put on public display. The developer's plans go awry when he disrupts Godzilla's rest and the monster goes stomping through Tokyo again. It's up to the elderly Mothra, and then to its two offspring, to save Tokyo from destruction. Written by

The famous scene where Godzilla destroys the castle in Nagoya actually had to be filmed several times, and the castle had to be built twice. To make the castle fall correctly, two men are sitting behind pushing it with long sticks. The first time the scene was shot, the two men pushed too soon, and the castle collapsed before Godzilla even touched it. The miniature castle then had to be rebuilt. The second time the opposite problem happened, and the two men missed their cue (you can see when Godzilla slams into the castle that it doesn't move). A second take had to be done with Godzilla clawing away at it as the two men push it over from behind. The moment where Godzilla's foot slides on the ledge (causing him to fall into the castle) has been thought by many to be an accident. According to Haruo Nakajima
(the actor inside Godzilla) the fall was actually scripted that way and done on purpose. See more

Please listen, we all understand. But do not blame every one of us of what has happened. The monster is killing everyone. The good are being killed, as well as the evil. Are you going to let innocent men died along side guilty men. You have no right to decide that, that right is sacred. My friends and I appeal to you with the utmost humility. Our people...
