The Origins of Godzilla

The Origins of Godzilla This iconic movie monster made his debut in the 1954 Japanese film “Gojira,” and was inspired by the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. A metaphor for the atomic age, Godzilla originally rose from the sea to level Tokyo. Despite his defeat, the franchise survived the death of its star, as Godzilla was shown to be only the first of his kind. Later, Godzilla was recast as a heroic figure that would battle even more destructive creatures and defend mankind. Join WatchMojo.com as we explore the origins of Godzilla.
