Miramax still owns the US rights to BIOLLANTE that they licensed from Toho. Echo Bridge was simply acting as a home video distributor/packager for Miramax.

Classic Media still owns home video, television and streaming rights to GODZILLA/GKOTM. Criterion's Blu-ray and DVD releases were sub-licensed from Classic Media with Toho's approval.

List updated.

KPA, do you see any chance of Kraken picking up the rights to SoG and MG and/or Sony-Tristar the rights to Godzilla 1985/RoG this year?

Keith has confirmed that G84/85 won't expire this year so no word on that.

Awhile back Kpa gave either a confirmed list or estimation of how long Sony and Classic Media had the rights to their Godzilla titles. I can't find the thread/post of his, but I recall a few of them going in to the 2020s, but is it possible the CM titles have lapsed by now? Many of the discs are becoming very expensive on Amazon which has led some to believe they're "out of print". I'm thinking it may just be dwindling supplies.

^Considering Svengoolie just aired King of the Monsters, GRA, Mothra vs. Godzilla, Ghidorah, Monster Zero, Godzilla's Revenge, and Rodan licensed from CM (with Gargantuas heavily hinted for a later airing) I'm guessing they're all still with them.

Best bet (at least until rights expire) seems to be a third party licenser like Shout Factory, KINO, Arrow, or Criterion.

Criterion would be great but after how fans reacted to the cover art for G54 they have no interest in doing any more Godzilla titles. :cry:

The last Godzilla movie I saw was Godzilla 2014 on DVD. I haven't gotten any of the Toho Godzilla movie passed Godzilla Versus Destroyah, but I hope to get or see them soon. :wink:

^Nope, other than Filmstruck (Criterion/TCM's streaming service) putting up entire quarter hour clips of their Godzilla movies on their Youtube channel.

Criterion puts a lot of work into these things, so it may take some time. If I were to make a guess I'd say in time for Christmas this year at the earliest.

They're probably going to wait until G2 or GvsKong to do BD releases. I hope we get 4K releases but with them not being on 4K in Japan I know that's a long stretch :(

Hello this is my first post here. So I know in a now locked forum Keith put out the contract dates for all of Sony's Godzilla films and I was wondering since it is 2019 and that means Godzilla vs King Ghidorah and Godzilla vs Mothra's contract are up so I was wondering, Sony did resign that contract?

Also if possible when does Sony lose the rights to "Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla, Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S., and Godzilla: Final Wars?

And I was also wondering does Miramax own Godzilla vs Biollante or who does for the US?
