Godzilla wants to show you his hometown! To celebrate the US release of Gojira, the original 1954, uncut Japanese Godzilla movie, Classic Media kicks off the Return to the King of the Monsters™ Hometown Sweepstakes.
Starting today, Godzilla fans can log onto www.godzillaondvd.com to enter to win one of more than 250 monstrous prizes, including one grand prize-winner who will receive an 8-day/7-night vacation to Tokyo, Japan for two, including travel and first-class accommodations. Classic Media will also give away one Sony PSP™ per day for the duration of the sweepstakes, running from August 16 – September 16, 2006. Additional prizes include 50 Gojira/Godzilla: King of the Monsters DVD sets and 200 limited-edition Gojira DVD movie posters.
In case you were wondering, Gojira is the original, unedited Japanese version of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. On September 5th, Classic Media will release Gojira on DVD, for the first time ever in the U.S., as part of a 2-disc set that will also include the Americanized Godzilla starring Raymond Burr. Gojira will include 40 minutes of footage that was edited out to allow for the addition of Burr as an American reporter.
