^The phrase I read from a Japanese fan was the release was typical of 'a late night anime' movie spinoff, not a wide-release film. If so, I wonder just how much those types of releases tend to make?

I've also heard that term used for its release. I guess I need to find a definition for "late night anime" in this context, because I'm not entirely sure what that entails. The closest comparison I know of offhand is Gundam Unicorn or Gundam: The Origin, but even those were far more limited than Planet of the Monsters.

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:

I'd love to see that list with attendance figures for Gamera, Mothra, and other kaiju films included.


Terror of Mechagodzilla henceforth shall no longer be known as the Godzilla movie that sold the fewest tickets in Japan! Huzzah! :mrgreen:

Japan's economic crisis and the advent of television really took a toll on the series in the '70s. It took 42 years and the advent of Netflix to make a new Godzilla movie even less successful!

BLAME!, Polygon/Netflix's previous movie (released this passed summer) is coming to home video next month, for those of y'all still worried that Netflix involvement might preclude a physical release and thus throw off their compete Godzilla DVD/Blu-Ray collection.

^I'm actually hoping they wait and release all 3 films in a set, I think it would be more appealing than individual releases. Also, there are still 8 original Godzilla films not released on BRD that are preventing my collection from being complete, so I'm not really worried about the animated films at the moment. :wink:

I'll deviate and say I hope it's NOT a set.

This is under the horribly vain hope that parts 2 and 3 aren't rancid sacs of rotten eggs like the first, and I can avoid having to pay any amount of money for that first one.

^That's a bit harsh. I don't fault my Gamera Blu-Ray set for including Supermonster, right?

The reality is I fully expect parts 2 and 3 to be every bit as awful as the first and this to be the first Godzilla home video release I skip completely.

Jim Pluff's blog elucidates some of the attached copy that came with this promo pic, dealing with Mechagodzilla's abilities, the fourth race of people in the story (presumably one of which we saw at the end of part one) and...

Spoiler Below:
... perhaps another classic Toho monster associated with that fourth race.

Crunchyroll's description brings a little more coherence:

If you read those, you get a feel for how they're likely to answer the Mechagodzilla size differential question. At least they (kinda) thought about it...I honestly thought they'd just have MG be as big as the gigantic Godzilla and just ignore the issue entirely.

With the last bit of information I was thinking -
Spoiler Below:
"ah, sounded like Mothra but I suppose its just Mechagodzilla," but the director's new comments make me think... maybe Mothra?!

I don't even know what I'm looking at in that poster...is that cluster of metallic rhomboids above Godzilla's head suppose to to be Mecha-G? If so, i gotta agree with you...

I like how menacing Mechagodzilla looks... of course, he looked vaguely menacing in the poster to the '93 film...

I wonder if those two native women are based on, lets say, two classic Toho characters?

Hmmm, Do you think they may be related to Minette and Mallorie from Eric Powell's run on Godzilla Kingdom of Monsters?!

So, it seems "The City on the Edge of Battle" is our official translation of movie #2's title?
