Godzilla’s got a big birthday coming up on Nov. 3! That date marks the 67th anniversary of Godzilla’s first on-screen appearance.
To celebrate, Toho has partnered with a handful of companies for a full slate of Godzilla celebrations next month. The headlining event is the theatrical debut of the long-awaited 4K remastering of Godzilla (1954), which will debut at more than two dozen locations across the U.S. in partnership with Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. These screenings will take place on Nov. 3, followed by 50th-anniversary screenings of Godzilla vs. Hedorah from Nov. 5-11 and screenings of The Return of Godzilla (1984) and Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989) starting the week of Nov. 12. Tickets for all of these screenings are available to purchase now at drafthouse.com.
But what would a birthday celebration be without some cool stuff? Pop culture collectibles brand Mondo just released a few new items to kick things off, including two limited-edition additions to its Godzilla Museum line: a design by Attack Peter (pictured top) and a Godzilla: The Animated Series figure. Mondo will announce even more Godzilla merch on Nov. 3, including a vinyl edition of the The Return of Godzilla soundtrack.
There will also be new merchandise from Super7, Kinokuniya, and the official Godzilla Shop on Amazon. The Kinokuniya offerings will include some items typically available exclusively from the official Godzilla Store in Japan.
