The ultimate collector’s editions of the action-packed franchise include the stand-alone title GODZILLA 2000 (1999), featuring both the U.S. version of the film, along with the original Japanese version, neither of which have previously been available on Blu-ray in North America. The GODZILLA DOUBLE FEATURE contains Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (2001) + Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla (2002), and the MOTHRA TRILOG features Rebirth of Mothra (1996) + Rebirth of Mothra II (1997) + Rebirth of Mothra III (1998), marking the first ever home entertainment release of Rebirth of Mothra III in North America.

 

GODZILLA 2000 (1999)

Get ready to crumble! The king of all monsters is back and bigger than ever! The action heats up when a UFO reveals itself as a massive alien monster with awesome destructive powers. The alien monster heads straight for the behemoth Godzilla who’s just crushed the entire city for the battle of the millennium. But Godzilla’s furious heat beam may not be enough to destroy the death-dealing alien, and the future of humankind is in jeopardy. Now, it’s a bang-up, three-way, no-holds-barred brawl as Godzilla, the alien monster and the courageous citizens of Japan fight an unprecedented battle for survival in this earth-shattering new sci-fi action adventure that will blow you away. The U.S. version of Godzilla 2000 has a running time of approximately 99 minutes, while the Japanese version has a running time of approximately 107 minutes; both are rated PG for monster violence and mild language.

 

GODZILLA DOUBLE FEATURE

Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (2001)

Fifty years ago, the Japanese Defense Forces killed Godzilla or so they thought. When a series of terrifying natural disasters begin to plague Japan, including the inexplicable offshore sinking of a U.S. submarine, a mystic old man warns his nation that Godzilla has come back to destroy Japan as revenge for all the souls lost in the Pacific War. When mere military might cannot squash the monster, the mystic man awakens the Holy Beasts of Yamato - King Ghidorah, Mothra and Baragon, sleeping giants that protected Japan in ancient times. These untamed mammoth beasts take on Godzilla with frightening supernatural brute power that has been 2,000 years in the making. Tradition and technology collide in this chilling high-tech, cutting-edge fable. Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack has a running time of approximately 105 minutes and is not rated.

 

Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla (2002)

After four years of scrupulous preparation under the prime minister, a new invincible robot, Mechagodzilla, has now reached completion, armed with various weapons, including the most powerful gun in history that can destroy anything in the world. Akane Yashiro is transferred to join the Mechagodzilla team as an operator who controls the mechanical monster. As soon as Mechagodzilla starts on its test run, the huge shadow of Godzilla begins to rise from the depths of the ocean...The battle of the century is going to take place between Godzilla and Mechagodzilla.  Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla has a running time of approximately 88 minutes and is not rated.

 

MOTHRA TRILOGY

Rebirth of Mothra (1996)

Mothra, one of Godzilla’s longtime allies (and sometimes foe) gets her very own movie series in this, the first of a trilogy. When the three-headed Desghidorah, even fiercer than King Ghidorah, begins to destroy the forests of Japan, Mothra leaves her island paradise to help save them. Rebirth of Mothra has a running time of approximately 107 minutes and is not rated.

 

Rebirth of Mothra II (1997)

Two young kids inadvertently unleash a giant sea creature which is somehow strengthened from the abundance of modern-day pollution. Mothra’s keepers, the tiny twins Moll and Lora, quickly rouse the gentle giant in order to combat this latest threat to peace. Rebirth of Mothra II has a running time of approximately100 minutes and is not rated.

 

Rebirth of Mothra III (1998)

In the final film in the new Mothra trilogy, King Ghidorah, the most destructive of all the monsters, returns to destroy the Earth.  Primed for combat, Mothra goes into the past to battle a younger version of King Ghidorah. Rebirth of Mothra III has a running time of approximately 100 minutes and is not rated.

I'm so excited about Godzilla 2000! Next to the original Gojira, this is my favorite of the Big G's films--credit going to the English-language writer Michael Schlesinger, who incorporates lines from Patton, Dr. Strangelove, and the Superman comics (and probably more that I missed). I knew when I saw a Japanese storekeeper look up to see Godzilla tromping through the city and he exclaims "Gott in himmel!" I knew this was not your ordinary dub. A treat for fans of classic movies--so glad to hear about this BD!

The uncut Japanese Godzilla 2000 Millennium is the only truly notable announcement here. Otherwise I expect Sony to screw this up somehow like they have every other G-release they've done.

Rebirth of Mothra III never had an official US DVD release so that one is significant as well.

I'm guessing in a year these will show up re-purposed into a box set, possibly with better presentation so I'm going to keep holding off for the time being.

What are some of the screw-ups on the recent Blu-rays (aside from the missing credits on King Ghidorah and Mothra)?
