Toho Pictures to Release All 30 Godzilla Films As Part Of 'Masterpiece Selection' Series In Japan

Gearing up for the 'Godzilla: Resurgence' release this summer, Toho Pictures is supposedly starting their marketing campaign next month. The first announcement on the docket is a re-release of the thirty plus films in the 'Godzilla' franchise and will include new bonus content with new interviews and commentary as well as 'Godzilla: Resurgence' promo stickers, cards, etc. The movies will be available June 15th.

Unfortunately, the new releases will be limited to DVD with the exception of Legendary's 2014 'Godzilla' that will receive both a DVD and Blu-ray re-release. The rest of the set will be Japanese only region 2 DVDs without english options. However, Legendary's 2014 'Godzilla' Blu-ray shares the same region code with North America.

While there's not too much in this news for western audiences to get excited about, the assumption that this marks the official ramping up of marketing for 'Godzilla: Resurgence' is incredibly interesting and I'm eager to see what's coming.
