Godzilla-Movies.com has confirmed that Janus Films/The Criterion Collection has recently acquired the rights to fourteen classic Godzilla films for broadcast on Starz and possible release under the Criterion brand.
Criterion’s Jon Mulvaney told the website that “It’s true! Janus Films and the Criterion Collection have the rights to these Godzilla films and Starz is licensing them from us. We hope to make them available on other platforms in the future. Please stay tuned!” Hopefully the reference to “other platforms” also includes the popular Criterion Collection blu-ray series, as many of these films have never been remastered or made available in any format for over a decade.
