Selected filmography


  • Cinema Shares initially released Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla as Godzilla vs. The Bionic Monster. In July 1977, Universal Studios threatened a lawsuit against the distributor, claiming that the title was too similar to their TV productions The Six Million Dollar Man and its spin-off The Bionic Woman. Cinema Shares then re-titled the film Godzilla vs. The Cosmic Monster, simply written as Godzilla vs. Cosmic Monster on posters.[1]
  • At one time, Cinema Shares released all three of its Godzilla films to theaters as a triple feature.[2]
