GODZILLA

Name: Godzilla                                                                     
                                                                                   
Godzilla (also known as The King of the Monsters and Gigantis, the                 
Fire Monster) is a kaij┼ź (fictional Japanese monster) from the Godzilla series     
of science fiction films. It was first seen in the 1954 film Godzilla and, to       
date, has appeared in 28 films, all of which were produced by Toho Co. Ltd.         
Being one of the most iconic characters in film history, Godzilla has also         
appeared in numerous comic books, video games, novels, and in popular culture.     
                                                                                   
In 1998, TriStar Pictures produced a remake set in New York City. The film's       
name was simply Godzilla; however, the character had been completely redesigned     
and only had superficial characteristics in common with the original Godzilla.     
The remake was met with mixed critical reception by long-time Godzilla fans and     
critics alike. The American remake monster was later identified by Toho as Zilla   
in Godzilla: Final Wars.
