Today is a very special day as monster movie fans the world over wish a very happy birthday to the mightiest monster of them all – Godzilla! The very first Godzilla movie, Gojira, was released in Japan on November 3rd 1954 to huge success. It was then dubbed into English, new footage shot featuring Raymond Burr and released in America as Godzilla, King of the Monsters in 1956 to even greater success. Godzilla became a monster movie franchise spawning 27 sequels (and a best-forgotten American remake in 1998) and is set to be relaunched into cinemas with a brand new rebooted version in 2014, directed by Gareth Edwards. Take a look at our Godzilla filmography below, listing all Toho movies starring everyones favourite giant radioactive lizard!
