GODZILLA MINUS ONE Gets Massive 4K Blu-ray Release

GODZILLA MINUS ONE Gets Massive 4K Blu-ray Release

Takashi Yamazaki Godzilla Minus One It was one of my favorite movies of 2023. This heartwarming remaster of the original 1954 film serves as an examination of national shame and coming together in a time of great struggle. It also has some of the best effects we’ve seen in decades, which is probably why it won an Oscar! Despite the film being a huge success at the US box office, it took surprisingly long to get a home release. Now, thankfully, it’s getting an English-friendly release with a massive 4K Blu-ray release from Japan.

The massive box set (fitting the king of the beasts) is the same one that was released in Japan earlier this year. It includes the film in 4K UHD and Blu-ray, as well as a Blu-ray Godzilla Minus One Minus Colorblack and white cut. The only difference from the previous version is that the films include English menus and subtitles. The extras disc is entirely in Japanese and NEGATIVE Add English subtitles. That’s a disappointment, too. But considering how difficult it can be to get any kind of English release for contemporary Japanese films, it’s still a big win.

The set is only available from: Godzilla website $65.00. Will ship in September. Full list of specifications below.
