Godzilla, Mothra, Mechagodzilla… TOKYO SOS!

Tokyo Needs Help… But From Who?
On March 22, “Godzilla: Tokyo SOS” will be making its U.S. theatrical debut in partnership with Fathom Events. To get fans ready to experience this one-night-only screening, we’re sharing some insights from the film, including what makes this Millennium era title a must-see. Don’t have your tickets yet? You can purchase them here.
At the end of 2002’s “Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla,” Godzilla retreated into the ocean after a devastating battle with Mechagodzilla (aka Kiryu), seriously wounded and near-death. Mechagodzilla fared no better, though, as the marvelous machine built with the DNA of a Godzilla from 1954 was incapacitated and in need of serious repairs. Japan and the world could breathe a bit easier now that Godzilla had been defeated.
We now find that Mechagodzilla is undergoing those much-needed repairs and is modified to be even more powerful than before. Replacing its incredible Absolute Zero weapon (capable of deep-freezing its target) is a new, Triple Hyper Maser and other ordnance. Should Godzilla, or any monster for that matter, appear, Mechagodzilla would soon be ready to defend Japan once again. But there comes a warning from a very unlikely source: MOTHRA!
Having not been seen since is devastating attack in 1961, Mothra appears with her twin priestesses who deliver a firm message… send Mechagodzilla to the bottom of the sea where the remains of the 1954 Godzilla can finally rest, or face the wrath of Mothra once again. Do this and Mothra will defend Japan should Godzilla appear once more. Ignore this and Mothra will ravage the country, leaving Mechagodzilla to fight two monsters.
There is little time to consider this proposition, though, as Godzilla returns! Horribly scarred from the last encounter with Mechagodzilla, there may be no stopping the monster this time. The time to act is now. But with three monsters waging war across Tokyo, will the city survive? It’s the 27th entry in the Godzilla film franchise (and the only one to be a continuation in the Millennium Era of films), a fan favorite, and it’s heading to your local theater this month!
