The independent kaiju film THE GREAT BUDDHA ARRIVAL (大仏廻国, Daibutsu Kokaiku) will have its North American premiere at this year’s G-Fest, running Friday, July 12 through Sunday, July 14 at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare in Rosemont, IL. The film will screen on Saturday at 10:00am, and on Sunday at 10:30am.
Members of THE GREAT BUDDHA ARRIVAL production team will also be on hand to present the film. Actors Peggy Neal (THE X FROM OUTER SPACE) and Akira Takarada (GODZILLA) are Guests Of Honor at the convention, and Avery Guerra, the movie’s Consulting Producer, Casting Director, and Publicist, will be in attendance the entire weekend.
Directed by Hiroto Yokokawa, the movie is a remake of the long-lost 1934 film by Yoshiro Edamasa, which was quite possibly the first-ever daikaiju film from Japan.
