The Return of Godzilla

The Return of Godzilla, released in Japan as Godzilla (ゴジラ, Gojira, also known as Godzilla 1984) is a 1984 Japanese kaiju film featuring Godzilla, produced and distributed by Toho. The film is directed by Koji Hashimoto, with special effects by Teruyoshi Nakano and stars Ken Tanaka, Yasuko Sawaguchi, Yosuke Natsuki, and Keiju Kobayashi, with Kenpachiro Satsuma as Godzilla. It is the 16th film in the Godzilla franchise and the first film in the Heisei series, despite having been produced during the Shōwa period. The Return of Godzilla serves as both a sequel to the original 1954 film and a reboot of the franchise that ignores the events of the Shōwa films, placing itself in line with the darker tone and themes of the original film and returning Godzilla to his destructive, antagonistic roots. In 1985, New World Pictures released Godzilla 1985, a heavily re-edited American adaptation of the film which included additional footage, Raymond Burr reprising his role from Godzilla, King of the Monsters!, as well as being produced, filmed, and edited with the same techniques.
