by Rob Caprilozzi

It was like a prehistoric dinosaur turned monster. The local inhabitants called it “Godzilla.”

Godzilla Minus One has officially arrived on streaming. Toho International has announced that the Academy Award-winning smash hit film has stomped its way onto Netflix. Thanks to rave reviews, the film quickly became the highest-grossing Japanese live-action film in US box office history.

Set in postwar Japan, Godzilla Minus One sees Godzilla bring new devastation to an already scorched landscape. With no military intervention or government help in sight, the survivors must join together in the face of despair and fight back against an unrelenting horror. From renowned director, screenwriter & VFX visionary Takashi Yamazaki (The Eternal Zero, Stand By Me Doraemon) comes Godzilla Minus One, a film about the power of home in the face of despair. The film stars Ryunosuke Kamiki, Minami Hamabe, Yuki Yamada, Munetaka Aoki, Hidetaka Yoshioka, Sakura Ando, and Kuranosuke Sasaki, with music by Naoki Sato.

Godzilla Minus One became the first Japanese movie to win the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects. This also marked the first time a Godzilla film was recognized by the Academy in its 70-year franchise history.  The film also took home 8 Japan Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
