Has the general flow of the Hollywood blockbuster hit let you down lately? Would you rather get lost in space than see someone else Avengers movie? If this sounds like you, then we have great news that some of the first films to shock audiences with their sheer spectacularness are back with a new episode. We are of course talking about a brand new Godzilla movie.
Almost every living generation has its own experience with Godzilla movies, as the franchise dates back to 1954, when the first episode Godzilla hit the silver screen first. Ever since the big green ear we all came to know and love first appeared in 1954, thirty-four Movies followed, proving to anyone with doubts that Godzilla movies were here to stay.
The Godzilla franchise took its shortest hush from 2004 to 2014, while before and after Godzilla movies have been pumping every few years since its premiere in the 1950s.
Most of these films were released by studios in Japan, the home of the green giant, but the US first jumped on the cart in 1998 with an epic soundtrack (I can hear Puffy now) before being renewed in 2014. The US hasn’t looked back since then, and 2021 will give us another episode to add to the mountain of Godzilla movies out there.
Godzilla to Kong
Godzilla to Kong has monster movie fans in a tizzy as many prepare for the blockbuster that will hit select theaters and streaming on HBO Max in March. The film comes from director Adam Wingard who you may know from the 2011 horror film about the home invasion You’re next and the criminally underrated synthwave thriller The guest in 2014.
The new movie will please both Godzilla and King Kong fans with a solid director and cast of Zoomer favorites, including Alexander Skarsgård and Millie Bobby Brown. The film will be released internationally on March 26 and will hit theaters on March 31 and on HBO Max in the US.
Godzilla hype has excited fans and wanting to prepare, many of them wondering where to pregame for the blockbuster monster goo with the first thirty-five Godzilla movies. Can you track all thirty-five in the streaming field? This is what we found.
HBO Max has sixteen of the original Godzilla movies for fans to look forward to in preparation for the new episode due out in March. This list includes the original 1954 Godzilla as well as the most recent US Godzilla movie, 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters
Maybe HBO Max was trying to fool us by omitting some of the franchise’s extensive catalog? We would have guessed there were only 14 movies between the first and last Godzilla movies, but we know better.
Okay, suppose you’ve run a marathon and watched Godzilla movies for about 30 hours that HBO Max has to offer and you’re thirsty for more, where are you going? If you don’t consider yourself a cinephile, it’s time to text your movie nerd friends for their passwords: more Godzilla movies are waiting for you on the Criterion Channel.
The Criterion Channel, the Criterion Collection’s streaming service, is bursting with movies that can’t be found anywhere else. Nowhere is the service’s prowess in hoarding the obscure more evident than in their collection of Godzilla movies. Watch Godzilla to Gigan Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla, and All monsters attack on the Criterion Channel to fill the post-binge void of what HBO Max has to offer.
Oddly, it’s missing from both HBO Max and the 1962 Criterion Channel King Kong vs Godzilla, and we can only imagine that this is a direct action by the people behind 2021’s Godzilla to Kong
Fortunately, user Star Entertainment English has done God’s work and uploaded the ultimate pre-game Godzilla movie to YouTube. Heroes like these make our franchise preparation possible. If you have forty-eight hours of streaming time (challenge accepted), you walk in Godzilla to Kong a monster maestro.
