GODZILLA (and GAMERA): American CED/Laserdiscs (1983-1998)

The good news for collectors is: there weren't very many Godzilla films released on laserdisc in the USA.  (Japan is a very different story, however.)  This list is so short, we have even included Gamera for completeness! CED's are also included here.
Many photos are "placeholders" and will be upgraded soon.

This ad appeared in video magazines in the 1990's, and was an announcement that there would be six Godzilla laserdisc releases in the Criterion Collection, including GOJIRA in the U.S. for the first time! Sadly, they never saw the light of day, and were cancelled (although the remaining five would see laserdisc release through Paramount, as we saw above).



There are only 3 Gamera releases!
