Time travellers from the 23rd century return to 1992 to warn Japan that Godzilla will cause a catastrophic nuclear incident in the 21st century and suggest a way to rid the world of him forever. They intend to go back to 1944, to Ragos Island, where a dinosaur was exposed to radiation from the Bikini H-Bomb test and became Godzilla. Upon completion of this task, King Ghidrah appears in 1992 and the visitors' true plan is discovered. They wish to destroy Japan so it will not become the dominant economic force. Luckily for the Japanese, Godzilla was still created and will now fight Ghidrah. Written by

For the army scenes, the production staff pulled every American (Geijin) from the military bases they could find. Many were working Japanese commercials at the time. For the army beach scene they chose the hottest day of that year and gave extras these very heavy wool uniforms and had them charging with guns blazing up the beach endlessly. At least three were overcome by heat exhaustion within the hour. See more »
On the US Naval ship in 1944, the Captain refers twice to another officer as, "Major (Spielberg)". The rank of Major doesn't exist in the US Navy, and the collar device Spielberg wore was that of Lt. Commander. See more »
This Godzilla film, being the third in the second series, offers a lot of things for the fan . This is the plot: People from the future come to present day Japan to warn the citizens about the threat that is Godzilla and that he will totally destroy Japan and offer their assistance to get rid of it. The futurians deves a plan to go back to the past to the event in which Godzilla was created by moving him from the site where the atomic bomb was used to create him to a neutral location. However, the futurians have an ulterior motive, they create King Ghidorah and use him to destroy Japan, for economical reasons. Unfortunately thier plan to get rid of Godzilla backfires greatly. Not only did they not get rid of Godzilla, but he comes back bigger and more powerful than he was before, and that spells major trouble for both the futurians and Japan.
