Godzilla Launches 4K Blu-ray Ahead of New MonsterVerse Movie

2021 will see Godzilla defending his current status as King of the Monsters against the ruler of Skull Island in this March's Godzilla Vs Kong, and to take fans back into the past of Legendary Pictures' "Monster-Verse", a new 4K release for the movie that started things off will be released in 2014's Godzilla. Starring the likes of Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor Johnson, and Elisabeth Olsen, this movie gave North America a new take on the Lizard King that kicked off a monstrous franchise!

Legendary Pictures shared the details about the new home video release that will land on March 23rd, giving fans of the Monster-Verse a chance to revisit the introduction of this new take on the King of the Monsters who is prepping for his battle against the most famous killer primate. Pre-orders are live here at Best Buy in both standard and exclusive SteelBook editions. The standard edition is also available here on Amazon.

The upcoming release will come with the following special features, for those wondering what kaiju related bonuses will come with this 4K release:
