I don't do the Netflex thing (there was never any need to). With this, we shall see. They do offer a free month's trial, so perhaps I can take advantage of that.

Well then, looks like I might be re-subscribing to Netflix a bit earlier than I thought. :P

The turnaround time between the theatrical and Netflix releases wasn't quite as severe as I'd feared. Given the breadth of the Netflix release, it actually seems impressive. How many subtitle tracks would you have to prepare for a wide release? And how far in advance would you have to prepare?

I still wish the movie looked more interesting. I'm actually more excited about the release date than about the film itself, if that makes any sense.

Well that's cool, but why wasn't it part of any of Netflix's Janaury promotional material a couple of weeks ago? --Oh well, it's a nice surprise. Has any information been revealed about an English dub? Just curious, still going to watch it no matter what.

^There's gonna be a bevy of dub and subtitle options for the worldwide release. This tumblr post has a preview of the English dub:

Interesting that Netflix is listing the trilogy as a series with the first 'episode' 'coming soon,' as opposed to listing each installment separately.

BTW, you can watch the trailer subbed or dubbed on Netflix proper now.

Of course, it's just a minute or so of footage and it's almost all Haruo talking, but I think the dub is shaping up to be pretty good!

Between these anime productions and the multiple Hollywood adaptations over the years, I think the answer to the question "How many Godzilla movies are there?" is going to get increasingly murky as time goes on.

Do we count the Hollywood films or just the ones made in Japan? Do we count the animated offerings or just the ones shot in live-action? Do we include GINO'98? Do we count the anime flicks as three separate movies, or are they one movie divided into three parts, or are they a mini-series of episodes that don't even count as movies? I can see the fandom wrestling with this trivia for years to come.

I think Toho announcing their intent to begin co-financing American films may simplify this to some degree. If they decide to continue the MonsterVerse after Godzilla vs. Kong, and said films are also Toho productions, I would expect them to "retcon" the official film list to include the first three Legendary films... perhaps even retroactively including GINO as the first Millennium film. This would make some logical sense, as there are four distinct periods all beginning with a film called Gojira that is referenced in subsequent films.

As for the animated films, I think it depends more on how the Netflix trilogy is ultimately received.

Possibly, but I think every year fandoms are getting further and further away from the quantitive, list-making impulses that were once its bread and butter.

... that being said, I still haven't decided how I'm organizing my Blu-Rays. I still have Shin Godzilla unfiled; do I put it after GFW or Godzilla '14? Maybe I'll do American films after Japanese so GFW, Shin, then Godzilla '98, then Godzilla '14...

I keep all movies featuring Toho chronological, whether they're Japanese or American produced, then have a separate Daiei section.

I'm wondering, if I end up not being really into the anime, whether or not I'll bother buying it. With the live action flicks, I feel compelled as a collector, even when I don't care for them. I don't know if "theatrically released motion picture" will be my standard, or if the fact that it's animated will make me think of it as a secondary medium, like the novels, comics, or TV projects, and thus optional.

I guess it's standard Netflix operating procedure for things to drop at the middle of the night?

I wonder how/when/if these will be released on home video? I know Netflix can take their sweet time - if they get around to it in the first place, that is. This is Godzilla though, so I'd think they will.

This is pure speculation on my part, but all three films will be out by the end of this year/beginning of the next, and Godzilla: King of the Monsters hits early next year, with Godzilla vs. Kong arriving a year later. It would certainly make sense for Netflix to ride that wave and get the anime trilogy out on Blu-ray sometime during 2019.

^Netflix has done similar coproduction deals with Polygon before, but that hasn't stopped Section 23 from licensing Knights of Sidonia and Ajin from Polygon for North American home video releases. Hopefully the same thing'll hold true here.

Ah, that's a good point actually. I didn't consider that Netflix may not intend to handle all aspects of the release themselves, perhaps only the streaming part.

Well, what company doesn't really matter, as long as we get them on Blu-ray! I'd be even happier to get them on UHD Blu-ray, but I think that may be too much to hope for for Japanese Godzilla movies. And smaller companies in general are still holding off on making the jump to that format, regardless of what films are concerned.

I wonder if the theatrical release for the next installment will fare better than the first? It was a worldwide Netflix release, right? Including Japan? If so, by the time #2 comes out every Japanese person with Netflix access, a passing interest in Godzilla or anime, and an hour and a half to kill will probably have seen the movie and (conceivably) be more primed to seeing the next chapter.

... unless they hated it, of course!
:lol:

(of course, it seems pretty apparent that Netflix wanted a Godzilla anime series and Toho managed to suss out a deal which had them break it into movie chunks so they could have a little extra gravy for themselves - Netflix still labels it as a series and the movies 'episodes')

I don't think there's a lot of incentive to see a movie in theaters you know will be on Netflix in two months. I feel like this theatrical stuff is merely a side-show release to squeeze out a few extra dollars from it.

I'm not sure how it fared, but I know this is more the norm than it is in other places. Many short films and items that would be straight to home media or streaming in the US for example are released theatrically in Japan. I'm thinking of the entire Yamato 2199 & 2202 anime series. Released theatrically in japan, then just a few weeks later, released on Blu Ray. Also I was shocked to find out all the Tinkerbell movies from Disney that were DVD releases in the US, ALL had theatrical releases in Japan.

It was released to about a third of the amount of theaters Shin Godzilla had. Its last confirmed gross I can find before it fell out of the top 10 and into obscurity (mid-December) was $3.1 million with an estimated attendance of about 170,000--The lowest attendance number in the series by a very wide margin:
