American nuclear weapons testing results in the creation of a seemingly unstoppable dinosaur-like beast.

    Celebrating its 70th anniversary, Godzilla is the roaring granddaddy of all monster movies and a remarkably humane and melancholy drama, made in Japan at a time when the country was reeling from nuclear attack and H-bomb testing in the Pacific. Its rampaging radioactive beast, the poignant embodiment of an entire population’s fears, became a beloved international icon of destruction, spawning almost 30 sequels.
