The King of the Monsters is back! TVTA takes a look at some more Godzilla chirashi movie posters, along with posters for the Godzilla Store Japan, and the Atami Kaiju Movie Festival.

Let’s kick off with a shopping trip…

Godzilla shopping?

Rarrrr!!

Yes!

Japan – a country I hope to one day visit for its culture and landscape. Tokyo – a city that is a must for me to see because of its toy and pop culture heritage. Add to this now the Godzilla Store, Tokyo. Imagine if you will, dear readers, a whole shop dedicated to Godzilla!

Fond farewells Max von Sydow

Max von Sydow

Oscar-nominated actor Max von Sydow died two days ago on 8 March 2020 at age 90, after notching up an incredible stage and screen presence spanning seven decades.

His numerous credits include The Seventh Seal (1957), The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965), The Exorcist (1973),  Flash Gordon (1980), Conan the Barbarian (1982), Never Say Never Again (1983), Dune (1984), Judge Dredd (1995), Shutter Island (2010), Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (2011), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). He also appeared in the HBO series Game of Thrones as the character Three-Eyed Raven.

I like best his roles in The Seventh Seal, in which his character, a knight, plays chess with Death; and The Exorcist, in which his character, a priest, is trying to exorcise a demon from a young girl.

The foreboding image of Father Merrin standing outside the house of the possessed Regan MacNeil is a movie poster that still haunts today.

In recognition of this film, I present two unique items from my collection as tribute to Max von Sydow – a Japanese 1974 seven inch record of The Exorcist theme, and a Japanese chirashi poster for The Exorcist, Director’s Cut.
