Full theater list for Rialto's Godzilla re-release

04.22.2014by: Eric Walkuski

GODZILLA is coming, in both his original and rebooted form. To coincide with Warner Bros' big-budget remake, Rialto Pictures is re-releasing the 1954 B&W classic. We only had a small list of theaters when the news came in earlier this year, but now we've got the entire group to share - the great news is that this big mother is invading a ton of cities!

GODZILLA was originally released here in 1956 as Godzilla: King of the Monsters, an atrociously cut, dubbed and re-edited version that inserted American actor Raymond Burr into the action; only an hour was used of the original’s 98 minute running time. Burr does not appear in the original, uncut version, which has an all-Japanese cast including Kurosawa regular Takashi Shimura, who the very same year appeared as leader of the Seven Samurai.

As directed by Ishirô Honda, with special effects by the legendary Eiji Tsuburaya, GODZILLA: THE JAPANESE ORIGINAL is much darker in tone than the dumbed-down U.S. release version, which entirely eliminated the original’s underlying theme: in the Japanese version, the monster is clearly a metaphor for the nuclear menace and the film itself a cry for world peace and disarmament. The American version also cut out all of the original’s astonishing Strangelove-like black humor.
