Toho Almost Made a BRIDE OF GODZILLA Movie
Even monsters need love.
With Godzilla: King of the Monsters roaring into theaters in just over one week, kaiju fever is red-hot. Many younger fans have been delving into Godzilla’s origins for the first time, uncovering a cornucopia of creature mayhem in Toho’s back catalog. But one film Toho abandoned before completion would have seen Godzilla falling in love with a giant robot!
Godzilla vs The Robot Daughter (affectionately dubbed Bride of Godzilla by fans) began production in 1956. For a humorous and enlightening window into what could have been, check out the video embedded at the top of the article from our friends at DangerVille!
Godzilla was supposed to have a robot girlfriend back in his early days… Thankfully, this didn’t happen. This canceled Godzilla movie was originally going to be the 3rd installment in the franchise and would have had Godzilla, Anguirus, and Mermaids… Yeah, it’s crazy.
Check out the synopsis and final trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters below.
Members of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species thought to be mere myths-rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Directed by Trick ‘r Treat and Krampus‘ Michael Dougherty, who co-wrote the film with Zach Shields, Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds, and Zhang Ziyi.
This film has been rated PG-13 for sequences of monster action violence and destruction, and for some language. Look for Godzilla: King of the Monsters to demolish US box offices beginning May 31st.
