Trivia

The reveal image for Mothra reads "Terrasearch #63061: Yucca Province". June 30, 1961 (6-30-61) was the date the original Mothra (1961) film was released. However, Yucca is a typo as it's supposed to be "Yunnan", and there is no such place as the Yucca Province. See more »

Goofs

When the submarine is diving and hit by the impact, one of the orders shouted by the captain was "emergency blow". This is an order to use all relevant systems to immediately send the boat to the surface, breaching at a severe angle like a whale. This order is apparently ignored. An emergency blow does not take place until later, after the warhead goes off. See more »

User Reviews

 
To much screen time for the humans.
7 June 2019 | by ipodcedSee all my reviews

Next Movie they do they need to let the monsters fight more rather than letting us listen or watch the people story. I like Godzilla, but this movie was pretty bad only Bec of the lack of screen time for the monsters fighting. I want to see a Godzilla movie with humans not humans with Godzilla. The main character, which is in the damn title, Godzilla has barely any screen time. I don't know why they keep doing this, they have been focusing to much on the humans since the 60s. Someone please change this aspect of all Godzilla movies.
