Godzilla: The Showa-Era Films (1954-1975)
This October, Criterion celebrates the arrival of spine number 1000, a Blu-ray collector's set fit for the granddaddy of all movie monsters. This landmark edition gathers for the first time all the Godzilla films from Japan's Showa era: fifteen kaiju rampages, presented in high-definition digital transfers and accompanied by a slew of supplemental material, including a giant deluxe hardcover book with notes on each film and new illustrations from sixteen artists, new and archival interviews with cast and crew members, and much, much more!
It's a colossal set, and Criterion would have it no other way for their 1000th release.
