Japan is plunged into chaos upon the appearance of a giant monster.
This film's Godzilla stands 118.5 m (389 ft) tall, surpassing Legendary Pictures' Godzilla (2014), which stood 355 ft/108 m tall, and thus making it the second largest version of Godzilla to appear on film, as of the release of from Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019), where Godzilla stood at 119.8 m (393 ft) tall.
What is that glow?
The drug that the government uses to kill Godzilla is described as something that will "disable his internal cooling system". After the drug is used at the end, Godzilla freezes. If the drug was supposed to disable his internal cooling system, it would have overheated him, not frozen him. But it's a bit more complex than that... In fact, in the movie the drug actually does manage to disable Godzilla's cooling system, but in stead of overheating him this triggers a SCRAM-shutdown (=Safety Control Rods Activation Mechanism) as a kind of involuntarily overreaction-thus freezing him in the procedure. By freezing himself temporarily, Godzilla is able to survive this potentially critical trauma.
The Toho logo is the modern version, then turns to the 1950s color logo to homage Godzilla (1954)'s era.
