re: Godzilla Minus One (2023, D: Yamazaki)

Decided to see the Minus Color version at a fairly late showing in XD with the reclining seats. I thought the black and white was pretty effective and noticed that in some shots they left just a tiny bit of color in it. Godzilla is scarier in B&W. Unfortunately I was super tired and in a first for me fell asleep and missed most of it. Still a fantastic movie in either version.

I saw Minus Color yesterday in 4DX. That was fun. The movie works really well in black and white. I hope they put both versions on the Blu Ray.

I enjoyed the movie more the second time than the first, and given how much I liked it the first time that's saying a lot!

Just saw this, thought this was really good. Didn't catch the color version, but having the movie in black & white didn't take me out of the movie. I'll watch color version when it comes out on streaming.

I actually thought the black and white added to the experience. Gave it an old school feel.

Today is the final day Godzilla Minus One and Minus Color will be in theaters. I guess if you haven’t seen it by now, you simply have no interest in going to a theater. Oh well. I just checked Fandango and it’s indeed concluded after tonight.

Im not going to make it to theaters to see it but I will be interested in watching it at home and I do hope it gets a streaming and physical media release here in the US. I've read online rumors any type of home video release likely won't happen until the end of this year. I hope maybe a boutique label like Arrow, Criterion, or Scream Factory could get a hold of the rights for a 4k/blu-ray release.

If this doesn't come out until Christmas 2024 or early 2025 on digital or BD, I'm sure there will be a lot of really annoyed and disappointed people. The main problem is that no U.S. studio has home video rights. Toho controls it and they aren't exactly known for their home video releases.

After seeing this in the theater a second time I really want the Blu Ray for my birthday. Not gonna happen (March), but I want it.

I love this movie.

Officially licensed Godzilla Minus One Minus Color shirt

$30

Looks like it's only on sale until tomorrow. It was on sale for 1 week to promote the B&W version. Badass looking shirt. I went ahead and got one.

Looks like the final tally for Godzilla Minus One in the U.S. is $56 Million. That's about $50 Million (or so) more than I expected before the movie came out.

Toho's got to be extremely happy with this one.

re: Godzilla Minus One (2023, D: Yamazaki)

I totally get why DJariya was pushing folks to get to a theater to see this film in either color or black and white, but to just watch the film in theaters. Not simply because of the theatrical experience of seeing any film in general on a super large screen with great sound is the way to go, but because there is the very real possibility that it takes forever for this film to come out on UHD/Blu (seriously, if it really is towards the end of 2024 before we get a home video/streaming/cable release, well time flies but that is still a long way off from today).

I have only seen maybe 2 movies on my own in theaters over the past 18-24 months, and just a small handful with my brother (if I usually go to the theater now it is because he pushes me to join him at a theater), so it was a big deal for me to get off my duff and get to a theater to see it by myself. It was so worth seeing it in a theater and I will probably put my money where my mouth is and buy the film on UHD, especially if even a small amount of effort is put into providing us with even an EPK level behind the scenes extra content on the home video release.

And let's hope if either of those get it, that they offer a set with two UHD BDs, one in color and one in b&w.

I just asked Bill Hunt about Godzilla Minus One on home video. Here is his response



I guess if you missed this in theaters, you might be shit out of luck. or at least for the foreseeable future.

Hopefully itís not too long. It would be cool if Criterion could strike a deal with Toho for the home media release.

re: Godzilla Minus One (2023, D: Yamazaki)

I'm sure it's happened before, but I don't recall the last movie when I heard, "Hey, everyone, this is the very last day we're going to have this in the theaters anywhere!" like we did with this one. I always thought movies play until the houses grow empty enough they take the prints out of circulation. Maybe I'm missing something. Wish I'd had a chance in my schedule to see it one more time but I just couldn't squeak it in, unfortunately.

Even stranger when there aren't even real "prints" to have to move around to other theaters.

Sadly, I missed the Minus Color run.

This isnít the 50s where a chopped up tv airing is the only chance of seeing this again. Worst case scenario we wait 6-8 months and receive a top of the line home release.

I don't understand movie releases either. I feel like a lot of it isn't up to the theater themselves and if that's the case why not still have showings? Especially this time of year where there's a dearth of releases and before the real Oscar push.

I actually emailed our only local true IMAX screen and asked why they were showing Elf and Polar Express instead of Godzilla -1 and the head person actually responded and said that they don't really have a choice in the matter. That's kind of strange to me. I mean I know there are a lot of contracts that they have to fulfill. Disney is notorious for strong arming theaters to show their movies for a certain amount of time in premium formats. But barring things like that shouldn't it be up to the theater what they show in what format?

I mean our local AMC still has a showing of Trolls. If they really wanted to could they not have one showing of G-1? Or because there was a big marketing push for the last week Toho really pulled the movie? I just don't get the movie industry sometimes and seems like to me some money is better than no money.

Maybe the thought was that Minus Color might not do as well with an American audience. A foreign film plus black and white may not be seen as a big draw.

I keep saying that I think Toho is at least considering releasing it in the U.S. market themselves rather than licensing it out like they've always done. This was the first time they ever released a movie, theatrically, in the U.S. themselves. That could be why Bill Hunt hasn't heard of any U.S. distribution for it. Toho may want the entire proceeds themselves this time, and who could blame them?

I'd be fine with a 4k UK release.

UK theatrical release was handled by Anime Limited. They usually release their theatrical releases on home video, but there is no official confirmation. I'm sure they will release it on 4K if allowed. Some of their 4K releases are done by MediaOCD (same company that Discotek Media uses for their 4K & BD releases).
