Shin Godzilla (Godzilla Resurgence) by Toho Pictures is about to unleashed upon the movie-going public in a limited release. (I'm going to see it October 12 with author Peter H. Brothers in Thousand Oaks.)

It’s hard to keep a good man down. A giant monster? Even harder. So it’s no surprise that “The King of Monsters,” Godzilla, has survived 60-plus years, weathered more than 30 movies and come through countless iterations both on and offscreen. The nuclear fire-breathing lizard has suffered various deaths, resurrections and reboots over the decades, falling into three distinct periods: the classic Showa Era (1954-1975), the Heisei Era (1984 to 1995) and the Millennium Era (1999 to 2004). Big G was also shipped over to America for the abortive 1998 TriStar film (considered by most to be “non-canon”) and the more successful Legendary Pictures version from 2014 (which will continue with 2017’s Kong: Skull Island and come to a head in the proposed Godzilla vs. Kong).
