Media Blasters Inc. and their Tokyo Shock label are proud to announce the exciting extras and supplementary materials for the upcoming DESTROY ALL MONSTERS DVD and Blu-ray. Media Blasters have enlisted the renowned Godzilla scholars Steve Ryfle and Ed Godziszewski to supervise and create the definitive release for the most beloved of all rubber-suit monster movies ever made.
DESTROY ALL MONSTERS (怪獣総進撃, Kaiju Soshingeki, 1968) is universally considered a strong fan favorite of the entire Godzilla series! It’s an all-star monster rally of epic proportions featuring Toho’s greatest and wildest mammoth monsters in the ultimate, all-out rubber suit rumble! See Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, King Ghidorah, Anguirus, Minya, Spiega, Baragon, Gorosaurus, Manda and Varan in all their titanic glory! The film was directed by the famed Ishiro Honda, director of the original 1954 film and the last entry to feature the dream team of special effects supervisor Eiji Tsuburaya, music composer Akira Ifukube and producer Tomoyuki Tanaka.
DESTROY ALL MONSTERS includes an audio commentary track by Steve Ryfle and Ed Godziszewski, co-authors of a forthcoming biography and film study of director Ishiro Honda, to be published by Wesleyan University Press. The commentary includes behind-the-scenes production information about this sci-fi classic, as well as special guest appearances by people who were involved the production. Steve and Ed are also constructing the ultimate image galleries loaded with stills, lobby cards, press books, poster art, trailers, radio spots, production art and vintage merchandise pertaining to the film.
Both the DVD and Blu-ray will feature the original Japanese language track as well as a choice of two English dubs. There will be more extras announced soon and many unannounced surprises! DESTROY ALL MONSTERS is on target to pulverize online and brick-and-mortar retailers everywhere on the North American continent on October 25th.
In addition, Media Blasters will release a CD of Akira Ifukube’s DESTROY ALL MONSTERS classic music score on November 8th.
