run! it’s godzilla

IN 1954 GODZILLA (GOJIRA IN JAPAN) BEGAN AS A knockoff of 1953’s The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, a cheesy but successful American creature feature. This, to say the least, was an inauspicious start for a film that would eventually thrill audiences around the world, spawn an enduring franchise, and be considered a cinematic classic. How did a movie with such a preposterous premise (an undersea monster ravages Tokyo after being awakened by nuclear tests) become so unexpectedly effective? One reason is that the film’s plot had real-life resonance—it was inspired by the panic that possessed Japan in 1954 after a U.S. nuclear bomb test in the Pacific showered radiation on a fishing boat and the tuna catch that it brought back home. The panic was uncomfortably familiar. Nearly a decade before,…

the birth of the monster

AT 6:45 ON THE MORNING OF MARCH 1, 1954, a Japanese fishing boat, the Daigo Fukuryu Maru (No. 5 Lucky Dragon), was cruising toward the Pacific Ocean’s Marshall Islands in search of bigeye tuna when crewman Matakichi Oishi saw a flash of yellow light through the porthole. “Wondering what had happened, I jumped up from the bunk near the door, ran out on deck, and was astonished,” he later wrote. “Bridge, sky, and sea burst into view, painted in flaming sunset colors.” Oishi had just witnessed the explosion of “Castle Bravo,” a 15-megaton thermonuclear device, on the islands’ Bikini Atoll. One thousand times more powerful than the bomb that had decimated the Japanese city of Hiroshima nearly a decade before, it was the latest and most destructive in a series of…

godzilla’s many lives

“AS THE MISSILES AND ROCKETS STREAM through the upper atmosphere, man hopes to ultimately reach other planets, seeking to find the answers to worlds outside his own,” the breathless narrator says at the beginning of the English-dubbed version of Godzilla Raids Again, the 1955 sequel to Honda’s original film. “But as he attempts to unlock the mystery of the universe in which he dwells, are there not darker and more sinister secrets on this planet, Earth, still unanswered, still baffling and defying man?” The film’s answer is a resounding yes. Its action begins when a pilot crash-lands on an isolated island, where he’s eventually rescued by a fellow aviator. Before they escape, they witness two giant monsters, Godzilla and Anguirus (a sort of mutant turtle), fight before falling into the sea.…

godzilla goes to hollywood

IN 1992, SONY/TRISTAR PICTURES ACQUIRED the rights to Godzilla from Toho, intending to produce the monster’s first original American movie—the beginning of a planned trilogy. (“It will probably be much more interesting than the ones being produced in Japan,” Honda said just before his death.) Why had it taken so long for Godzilla to get his Hollywood break? “Godzilla wasn’t really a candidate for a Hollywood film until sci-fi and monster movies broadened their appeal and stopped being seen as B movies, starting in the late sixties with movies such as Planet of the Apes and 2001: A Space Odyssey,” says J.D. Lees. “By the early ’80s, the rise of visual effects companies like Industrial Light & Magic, coupled with the massive success of sci-fi films such as Star Wars,…

godzilla filmography

SHOWA ERA (1954–1989) Godzilla 1954 Yes, advances in special-effects technology have made the original Godzilla’s lumbering men in monster suits seem downright ludicrous, but its nightmarish power has never been equaled. Godzilla Raids Again 1955 The first—but hardly the last—appearance of Godzilla as pure product rather than art, this sequel was even more disappointing than most. Audiences didn’t seem to care: It was a hit. King Kong vs. Godzilla 1962 The first Godzilla film to pit the beast against another legendary creature began as a satire of Japanese pop culture—specifically television—but ended up a monstrous muddle. Mothra vs. Godzilla 1964 The first matchup between two Toho monsters (Godzilla and a mutant mother moth) was a precursor to the Jurassic Park franchise: a scientific discovery is turned into a tourist attraction, and disaster ensues. Ghidorah the Three-Headed Monster 1964 It’s not…
