Godzilla vs. The A-Bomb


As I IMPATIENTLY wait for the new Godzilla movie to be released (14,400 minutes from right…NOW), I’ve been re-watching the second movie trailer to keep me from going crazy exploding all over the neighborhood. And that’s where my uncanny recollective abilities kicked in.

In the Budweiser-saturated recesses of my mind, I recalled an article about Godzilla that appeared in the highly-trusted Weekly World News. Unfortunately published on September 11, 2001 (nice timing, guys), the article claimed that the U.S. dropped the A-bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6th and 9th, 1945, not to wipe out the Japanese and to end a long and brutal war, but to kill Godzilla.

This is exactly the establishing plot element of the new Godzilla movie. According to the movie’s trailer, that is.


The WWN article, written by Tobuichi Kimura, goes on to say that, “Contrary to what most history books say, the U.S. military did not drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima simply to end WWII, but mainly to destroy Japan’s secret weapons – Godzilla and Rodan.” This raises questions and at least two eyebrows as Godzilla 2014 is reported to have a flying Rodan monster in the movie as well.

So it comes down to this: either the producers of Godzilla 2014 read this article 13.5 years ago and pinched it for their script, or the events of 1945 were indeed true and that we attempted to stop Godzilla with a nuclear deterrent. I think we all know the answer here.

Killing Godzilla can’t be done, by the way, except in Godzilla (1954) and Godzilla vs. Destroyah (1995). But those were the ONLY two times.

    Well, as a wise man once said: “History shows again and again
    How nature points up the folly of men.”

    So looking forward to Godzilla’s return!
