GODZILLA VS. KING GHIDORAH (1991)
Following the events of Godzilla vs. Biollante, Godzilla is presumed dead or dormant as a result of the anti-nuclear bacteria with which he was injected by the JSDF. One day in 1992, however, a UFO touches down in Japan carrying a group of humans who call themselves the Futurians. They claim to be from the year 2204 and have a bleak warning for Japan: Godzilla will return and destroy Japan's nuclear power plants, wreaking radioactive destruction across the land and making Japan an uninhabitable wasteland. The future visitors -- Wilson (Chuck Wilson), Grenchko (Richard Berger), Emmy Kano (Anna Nakagawa) and android M-11 (Robert Scott Field) -- offer to save Japan by removing Godzilla from history.

The reinvention of King Ghidorah in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah made a big splash with audiences and fans. Although Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah never got a theatrical release in North America, it grossed around $11,000,000 at the Japanese box office and won a Japanese Academy Award in special effects. It gave Toho enough mojo to make a Godzilla movie every year until 1995, reinventing many of its classic kaiju characters along the way. Tomorrow in 30 Days of Godzilla, we'll look at the next chapter in the ongoing Heisei series: the 1992 monster spectacle GODZILLA VS. MOTHRA
