Godzilla's Counterattack (Unmade film)
History[edit | edit source]
After Toho decided to scrap Micro Super Battle: Godzilla vs. Gigamoth, the studio began exploring other projects to follow the impending Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah. Designer Minoru Yoshida submitted a screenplay titled Godzilla's Counterattack in 1991, which built upon the concepts introduced in Micro Super Battle, including a team of scientists being injected into Godzilla and the appearance of Mechani-Kong from King Kong Escapes. The draft was ultimately discarded, but replaced with another similar project titled Godzilla vs. Mechani-Kong. In the end, the concept was abandoned and Godzilla vs. Mothra was produced instead.
Plot[edit | edit source]
A group of terrorists implant a device inside of Godzilla that triggers an unstable nuclear reaction inside his body, turning him into the unstable Red Godzilla, which begins a rampage across Japan. The JSDF then enacts a desperate plan to inject a team of scientists inside of Godzilla to bring him under control while the giant robot Mechani-Kong battles him from the outside.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The concept of the unstable "Red Godzilla" introduced in this screenplay would ultimately be recycled for Burning Godzilla in Godzilla vs. Destoroyah.
- This film shares the same Japanese title as the 1955 film Godzilla Raids Again. Beyond title, the two films do not share any similarities.
