30 film marathon begins May 02, 2015, includes both American "Godzilla" films
For the first time in history, the Japanese satellite network WOWOW will be broadcasting a marathon of every Godzilla film that currently exists. (Yes, even the infamous Roland Emmerich one.)
The festivities kick off on April 26, 2015, with a mini-marathon on WOWOW Prime. This TV event includes a selection of movies representing the Showa, Heisei, and Millenium eras, as well as the two current American Godzilla films. The films featured are Godzilla (1954), The Return of Godzilla (1984), Godzilla 2000: Millenium (1999), Godzilla (1998), and Godzilla (2014).
This mini-marathon is just an appetizer for the giant-size Godzilla marathon that will air on WOWOW Cinema beginning May 02, 2015, though. This marathon will feature all 30 of the currently existing Godzilla films, encompassing some six decades of kaiju movie history.
That's truly a monster marathon!
