As part of my on-again, off-again Godzilla series – https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/tag/kaiju/, see also Trivia Question: Kaiju

I wasn’t aware of the term “kaiju” for a long time. For a simple explanation that is open to some debate among kaiju fans, we can go with Wikipediahttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiju.

Kaiju is a Japanese word meaning “strange creature”. In English, it has come to mean “monster” or “giant monster”, referring to creatures of a large size seen in movies from Asia. Many kaiju movies are made in Japan. It is a type of tokusatsu entertainment. … The most well-known kaiju is Godzilla.

In some cases, I see it translated as “strange beast” and in other places as “monster.” Some purists would argue it only applies to Japanese movies of a certain genre; I tend to take the broader view that it includes a lot of other beasts/animals/monsters, like King Kong and other giant beasts. Had I titled this blog post “Godzilla,” then thrown in kaiju, some would have gotten the reference.

Two (2) official trailer videos in the link above – included below in case there are any issues. Don’t know if they have spoilers, but I will check them out shortly. YouTube Links: Godzilla: King of the Monsters – Official Trailer 1 (some profanity in trailer) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVDtmouV9kM and Godzilla: King of the Monsters – Official Trailer 2 – In Theaters May 31: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=4&v=KDnKuFtdc7A.

I am a big fan of Godzilla movies. See my earlier posts: Everything We Know About Godzilla: King Of The Monsters — Image Bomb and Trivia Question: Kaiju. If you want a RolePlaying Game (RPG) or other types of games with Kaiju, there are several available on DriveThru RPG (DTRPG): https://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse.php?keywords=Kaiju&x=0&y=0&author=&artist=&pfrom=&pto= (not an affiliate link).

It can be hard to follow since Godzilla movies tend to fall into different worlds, depending on who made them. Good cheat sheet for each continuity: https://wikizilla.org/wiki/List_of_Godzilla_film_continuities – has a video at the bottom to explain the differences.

In case the above paragraph wasn’t confusing enough, you have EVOLUTION of GODZILLA: Size Comparison https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbFILj44OX0. It’s the first one to show up when I did a YouTube search: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=godzilla+height+over+the+years.

If you get a chance to see it at a drive-in, it should be impressive. I saw one of the Godzilla movies, https://wikizilla.org/wiki/Godzilla_vs._Hedorah, at a drive-in. If you think a regular movie theater is impressive, it pales in comparison to a drive-in screen.
