When an ancient statue is moved for display in Expo '70, a giant, vaguely Triceratops-like monster is released. The monster goes to Japan in pursuit of the statue and ends up battling Gamera, the giant flying turtle.
In 1973, Gamera sacrifices his life to rid the world of the Gyaos once and for all. Thirty-three years later, a small boy, whose father witnessed the 1973 event, named Toru finds a ... See full summary »

The character Rokuro "Roku-chan" Ibuki (played by Hiroyuki Kawase) wears a red sweater with the dog Snoopy from Charles M. Schulz's famous comic-strip, "Peanuts." (Snoopy is sick to his stomach in the image, and the word bubble says, "What a stupid thing to do.") Later the same year on August 11th, Toho-Towa, Toho's distribution arm for foreign films, released Snoopy Come Home (1972) (Japanese release title: "Sunûpî no Daibôken"/"Snoopy's Big Adventure").

The car of the main heroes doesn't seem to be pulling any kind of trailer after they flee from the lake, yet the huge water craft that the child had been using at the beginning had to be transported somehow. See more »
The German dub of the film infamously renamed Jet Jaguar to King Kong in an attempt to fool audiences, but it also contained other differences. Most importantly, Goro was changed from being Rokuro's much older brother to his father. And instead of contacting the aliens of M Space Hunter Nebula, the Seatopian people contact a certain "Alpha Base". See more »
I've seen every Godzilla movie at least once, but this one is something of a special case. They say this film was started and completed in the same month, which is an incredibly short amount of time for a feature film to be made. I can't say it has the best plot, basically Atlantis is pissed out of nowhere and sends a giant bug to attack Japan of all places, while "agents" of their Caucasian race attempt to take control of a simplistic Robot that looks like a gymnastics instructor. Well, all that put aside, the movie isn't actually that terrible. It was fun to see Gigan in another film besides his own, I feel he was always a bit under rated.
