Own “GODZILLA” on Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, 2-Disc DVD Special Edition, and Digital HD on 9/16/2014.
A new big screen version of the many times made and remade Godzilla.
The previous big screen Godzilla endeavor was from Columbia Pictures in 1998, and did mediocre business at the movie box office. That film starred Matthew Broderick and was directed by Roland Emmerich.
Warner Bros. bet a lot on the director of the Godzilla reboot. Gareth Edwards had never made a Hollywood movie before. His only big screen credit to date was the hardly seen, box office bomb Monsters, which was practically a direct-to-DVD release in 2010.
The Shawshank Redemption director and The Walking Dead creator, Frank Darabont, was hired on January 4, 2013 to pen the final rewrite for the Godzilla reboot.
Godzilla earned $200,676,069 at the U.S. movie box office during its theatrical run. It is the 9th highest grossing movie of the 2014 movie box office as of September 4, 2014, just behind The Amazing Spiderman 2.
