    An official announcement has finally been made by Media Blasters via their facebook page: "Talking about Godzilla we can make it official now, we have DAM and Godzilla vs. Megalon. DAM is scheduled for October and will be both Blu-Ray and DVD releases. Do not know all the details about the extras yet. We will post with it later as they become available. Now for the funny part, we were not looking at Godzilla vs. Megalon till everyone said we have it so we asked they said ok so we picked it up."

    EXCELLENT! I love those films. I'm really looking forward to MEGALON since that was the most amusing film. I don't understand why it's been so maligned on DVD so far.

    Even though Megalon won't be coming to Blu, I'm still really looking forward to both!

    Thankfully, Toho has already restored and remastered all the Godzilla films in HD (which should prevent any BEYOND THE DARKNESS style snafus, since they'll surely be providing Media Blasters with an already created master), and they have produced supplements for them which, if past Media Blasters releases are any indication, will be happily ported over.

    When I heard people on facebook initially talking about, I thought, what the hell is this DAM they keep referring to? It was just by accident, from someone who wrote it out, DESTROY ALL MONSTERS, that I finally put two and two together. D'Oh! :eek:

    August Ragone says this about GODZILLA '85: "The rights to GODZILLA 1985 (the US cut) are a little more problematic, since there are parties that they that they own it, while Toho denies their claims. Meanwhile, the Japanese version, RETURN OF GODZILLA, is up for grabs.'

    I also learned, nothing official, mind you, just facebook talk, that Echo Bridge owns BIOLLANTE and they're trying to get it released. I sent emails out to them, have to just wait and see if anyone bothers to respond.

    I'm glad they are releasing it. That means the disc will be affordable. As long as its widescreen and has both english and Japanese tracks I'll be happy.

    Sweet! Cannot wait for this DAM is my favorite Godzilla movie. Really happy to see that two English dubs are included (I assume one will be the original AIP dub!).

    I'm glad the commentary is being done by two of the guys who did a couple of other Godzilla discs (I particularly like their track on Mothra vs Godzilla).

    So is Megalon coming out? That site says the rumors are false.

    Checked out Destroy All Monsters this weekend after I picked it up at Chiller Theatre. I haven't had any interest in movies like this since I was very little and this got me a little interested again, it was fun. Here's some caps:

    You can see the string on Manda's jaw--what more do you need?
