The world is beset by the appearance of monstrous creatures, but one of them may be the only one who can save humanity.
The song that plays when Serizawa sees Godzilla's dorsal spines protruding from the ocean and heading straight towards him, and when the soldiers shoot at Godzilla as he walks by is actually an update of Godzilla's theme song from Godzilla vs. Hedorah (1971).
Dr. Serizawa? Jerry Boyd. I'm warning you, it's a mess. It's just a total mess. Monarch set me in this morning. Took a look around but I told them we need you.
In the film, the US Army is sent to the Yucca Nuclear Waste Repository when the characters realize that there is a second spore containing a live, female MUTO. Dr. Serizawa describes the site as the place "where you send all of your nuclear waste". In reality, the proposed Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Repository was scrapped. An amendment to the Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act of 2011 finally killed the project. Nuclear waste from U.S. nuclear power plants is currently being held at those plants until a new arrangement for a final disposal site can be made. Opposition to the Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Repository remains high among environmentalists and Nevada residents, among others.
Played in slow motion the opening credits on the DVD show the redacted portions are actually a series of jokes wrapped around the remaining information.
