ゴジラ モスラ キングギドラ大怪獣総攻撃
Godzilla Mothra King Ghidorah Giant Monsters All-Out Attack

At the Tokyo International Film Festival on Godzilla’s birthday


November 3rd is Godzilla’s birthday. This is because it was on this day in 1954 that the first work “Godzilla” was released.


On the same day in 2001, when Godzilla turned 4 years old, “Godzilla Mothra King Ghidorah Giant Monsters All-Out Attack” was screened as a special screening at the 14th Tokyo International Film Festival at Bunkamura Orchard Hall in Shibuya, Tokyo. This is the first time the work has been shown to the public. The venue was overcrowded with about 2,000 spectators, and was filled with the enthusiasm of the fans.


Before the screening, producer Shogo Toyama, Chiharu Niiyama, Ryudo Uzaki, Nobuaki Tsunoda, and director Shusuke Kaneko gave stage greetings. A message of support from Yomiuri Giants player Hideki Matsui was also projected on the screen. Will Matsui’s dream of co-starring in a movie with Godzilla next year come true?



Godzilla appeared after the stage greeting. Everyone was surprised to see Godzilla spewing white smoke from his mouth.
