Godzilla is 61 years strong this week and fans of Sci-Fi and giant monsters have a lot to celebrate. Inspired by giant monster movies of the early 1950s like The Beast of 20,000 Fathoms, Toho Studios released Gojira in Japan in 1954. Followed two years later by the Americanized release Godzilla King of the Monsters, this movie created a new genre of giant monster films that has been stomping cities and saving the Earth ever since. Kaiju movies have held a special place in the hearts of sci-fi and monster movie lovers for decades and it’s only fitting that we celebrate 61 years of the King of the Monsters with a highlight of some of the best Godzilla movies through the decades.
