Godzilla is a gigantic prehistoric sea creature, awakened by nuclear radiation to emerge from the ocean and wreak havoc on Earth. Classified as a kaiju – a Japanese word that refers to the genre of films featuring such giant monsters, Godzilla first appeared as a cinema release in 1954 in Ishirō Honda’s film Godzilla. Since then, the King of the Monsters has appeared in a multitude of films, TV shows, video games, comics, and books. TVTA is pleased to present a selection of Japanese chirashi movie posters featuring Godzilla as seen in live action and anime films.
A Chirashi is a printed mini-poster or flyer used to promote film releases in Japan. The size of a typical Chirashi is “B5” (approx 7 x 10 inch /18cm x 26cm). A relatively cheap and space-saving alternative to regular-size industry posters, Chirashis make excellent movie memorabilia collectables. You can find all my Chirashi posts here
