Godzilla is hot (and not only because of whatever’s coming out of the giant monster’s mouth in the picture above).
- Netflix has acquired worldwide streaming rights to an anime feature, titled simply Godzilla, which will premiere theatrically in Japan later this year;
- Following the success of its current Kong: Skull Island live-action movie, Warner Bros. has begun planning Godzilla vs. Kong for 2020 — a year after unleashing Godzilla: King of Monsters, the sequel to its 2014 blockbuster Godzilla.
But how can you satisfy your Godzilla cravings right now? Well, the scaly creature has quite a filmography, having appeared in in dozens of films since 1954. Here are some highlights for streaming:
- Watch the 2014 Godzilla for just $1.99 SD/$2.99 HD from FandangoNow.
‘Godzilla’ (2104) trailer:
- Watch a bunch of classic Godzilla films for free at Shout Factory TV, including Godzilla Raids Again (1955), Godzilla vs. the Thing (1964) (aka Mothra vs. Godzilla), and both the Japanese and American versions of the 1954 film that started the franchise. Here’s an original trailer for the US version, titled Godzilla, King of the Monsters:
- IndieWire in 2014 ranked every Godzilla movie. The 1954 Godzilla was tops, followed by Mothra vs. Godzilla, Godzilla (2014), and then … Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah? This 1991 film was ranked as the best Godzilla film ever by Paste Magazine, also in 2014. If that’s piqued your curiosity, Starz subscribers can stream it now. You can also get it from $2.99 at Amazon, Google Play, Vudu and Microsoft.
