Gareth Edwards’ ‘Godzilla’ Gets Street Date

Gareth Edwards' mega-summer blockbuster Godzilla has finally gotten a street date.  Warner Brothers Home Entertainment announced today that the hugely successful film will hit store shelves on September 16th.

A stand alone film in its own right, Edwards' Godzilla takes the franchise back to its roots as the monster of all monsters looks to have possibly met its match (much thanks to humanity's scientific arrogance), as an unknown create begins to wreck havoic on the planet.  But a group of scientist are fighting against the clock, using human's most natural draw to fight back, looking for any way to save the world from its own demise.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins and David Strathairn star in the action packed thriller that thankfully has no connection to the 1998 Matthew Broderick film.  It has grossed almost $500 million worldwide at the box-office, making it one of the biggest hits of 2014.

Bonus features included on the Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Pack are MONARCH: Declassified, a look at even more evidence of the government's massive cover-up that isn't featured in the film, and  The Legendary Godzilla, a behind-the-scenes look at the larger than life monster.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
