From Though the American version GODZILLA, KING OF THE MONSTERS has long been a staple on home video, there has always been speculation as to if and when the original 1954 Japanese version would become legally available in the USA. Speculation has heated up over a DVD release ever since Rialto Pictures release remastered prints of the original GOJIRA to theaters in 2004. Recently, the film was released on DVD in England and Australia, making U.S. fans even more impatient. On September 5, the wait will be over. Classic Media, the Sony-distributed independent that holds the current rights to KING OF THE MONSTERS and several other early Toho giant monster movies, have announced the release of a special 2-pack DVD of both the Japanese and American versions of the film.
