Technology column header

Nov. 3 is Godzilla Day. Believe it or not, it has been 66 years since Toho Studios released Honda Ishirō’s “Gojira” in Japan on Nov. 3, 1954.

“Gojira” was the first kaiju (“strange beast”) film, introducing a new subgenre under tokusatsu (“special filming”) entertainment. Kaiju films deal with giant monsters, while tokusatsu refers to Japanese live action movies or TV dramas that make heavy use of special effects, such as mecha (giant robots) and superhero shows. More important, this first Godzilla film was not only a cinematic classic, but also gave birth to an international pop culture icon and the longest continuously running film franchise, as officially recognized by Guinness World Records.
