Godzilla will stomp onto Blu-Ray in spring

Roland Emmerich’s 1998 take on the Japanese kaiju icon, Godzilla, will make its high definition entrance in March from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment as we’ve just discovered, marking the film’s 10th Anniversary.

Following the French atomic bomb tests in the South Pacific, an unknown creature is spotted passing westward through the Panama Canal. Scientist Niko Tatopolous is called in to investigate the matter, and he quickly arrives at the conclusion that a giant, irradiated lizard has been created by the explosions. Godzilla then makes its way north, landing at Manhattan to begin wreaking havoc in the big city. Even with the combined forces of the U.S. military to fight the monster, will it be enough to save the people of New York?

The film will be presented in a 1080p widescreen transfer and feature 5.1 Dolby Digital audio tracks in English, French, German, and Russian. As special features the disc will contain All Time Best Of Godzilla Fight Scenes and the Featurette “Behind the Scenes of Godzilla with Charles Caiman”. Further, the “Heroes” Music Video by The Wallflowers will be included on the disc.

The release is scheduled for March 4 currently.
