The world’s most popular man in a suit monster is getting the deluxe treatment this year, with a 2 disc release of Gojira. That’s right, Gojira: it’s the uncut, un-Burred original Japanese version. But fret not, fans of the Americanized Godzilla – Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be included as a bonus feature!
The set is due September 5, and for many in the United States this will be the first chance to ever see the unadulterated Japanese film, which is much more serious, and much darker, than the endless flood of silly sequels might lead you to believe. The full complement of extra features haven’t been announced yet, but it’s shaping up to be a nice set – and it has a nice cover, as you can see exclusively here at CHUD. Enjoy the premiere of the cover art for Gojira, and pre-order the set now for an incredible $16.49! Hardcore fans can click here to pre-order the six movie set Godzilla Classic Collector’s Edition – The Official US & Japanese Film Versions, which contains (as the title says) the US and the original Japanese versions of Godzilla vs Mothra, Terror of Mechagodzilla, Godzilla vs Monster Zero, Godzilla Raids Again, Godzilla’s Revenge, and Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster. These DVDs should help fans wash the taste of the US Godzilla’s appearance in some recent snack food commercials right out of their mouths.
