Last week saw the limited release of Shin Godzilla, the newest Japanese Godzilla movie. In celebration of the twenty-ninth film (thirty-first if we count the two American films) I will share some facts and information about the King of the Monsters himself. Producer Tomoyuki Tanaka conceived the idea for Godzilla after being inspired by 1953’s The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms and the recent Diago Fukuryu Maru incident where a fishing boat was exposed to nuclear fallout from the United States Castle Bravo test at Bikini Atoll.
