Witness the legendary origin of the mechanical monstrosity who made his Hollywood debut in this year’s Godzilla vs. Kong with the original Kaiju-on-Robot slugfest: Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla! As purely entertaining and imaginatively crafted a Godzilla movie as Japan has ever produced, Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla finds everyone’s favorite nuclear Kaiju dealing with a case of identity theft, as a mysterious doppelganger is wreaking havoc across the country and sullying his good name! Meanwhile, a pair of archeologists research an ominous Okinawan prophecy involving the guardian monster King Caesar, while Interpol investigates a group of technologically advanced space aliens who are up to no good. And if that sounds weird, buckle up, because Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla has it all: thrilling Kaiju fights, 70s 007-style espionage, campy sci-fi, and even an entire full-length musical number. It doesn’t get any better than this.
