I'm sorry, is it just me or did some stat that the movie mentioned at the 25 and a half hour mark just get thrown out of the movie last night? Because some guy mentioned "at least 60 knots" and I'm pretty sure it was the big guy, unless you wanna tell me that humans can go 60 knots.

Yeah, I don't see what else that line could've been referring to.

If Shin Godzilla was 118 Meters and 92,000 tonnes in Shin Godzilla, Then how heavy would he be If he was 120 Meters?

In Godzilla Vs Evangelion he was 120 Meters. But his weight is Unknown.

The King of the Monsters (talkcontribs)

Godzilla vs. Evangelion was probably just rounding his height up.

Gerdzerl Kinerfdamahnsters (talkcontribs)

120 meters / 118.5 meters = 1.01265822785

1.01265822785³ = 1.03845740398

92,000 metric tons * 1.03845740398 = 95,538.0811662 metric tons

Godzilla will be in public domain?

Shinomura (talkcontribs)

I hear Godzilla would only be in the public domain in the year 2049... is this true?

Allosaurus (talkcontribs)

As I understand, when Godzilla will become public domain, then all movie companies will can use him and will can make their own Godzilla films. Am I right?

VaderRaptor (talkcontribs)

That will probably be irrelevant in the future because Toho can just rerelease the original Godzilla movie and the early showa movies to push the date back another 100 years from that rerelease date. (This is my understanding of it, I may be wrong)

According to this blog post, Godzilla (1954) will enter the public domain in the U.S. in 2049. In Japan, it's a bit less clear:

So, for Godzilla and every other Godzilla film until Godzilla vs. Hedorah (1971), who is the author? Godzilla films were usually more collaborative works than Kurosawa's films. The collaborative team for Godzilla included several people, principally Director and Ishiro Honda, Producer Tomoyuki Tanaka (who came up with the original idea), Special Effects Director Eiji Tsuburaya and Music Composer Akira Ifukube. Most of these men would comprise the team for the later entries in the Godzilla franchise until 1975. If the Kurosawa Rule is strictly confined to the director, then it would be Honda's death in 1993 that would start the clock on the 38 years for Godzilla and its first eight sequels. If on the other hand, Japanese law on co-authorship is more like that of the United Kingdom's when it comes to film (last to die of Principal Director, Screenwriter, Dialogue Writer or Film Composer), then it would be measured from Ifukube's death in 2006. Assuming that the statement “the copyright over films is protected for 38 years from the year after the death of the director” as translated on the akirakurosawa.info site applies to all pre-1970 films, then 2031 will see a lot of Godzilla enter the public domain in its native country.

Now, there's a major error by the writer here: Motoyoshi Oda directed Godzilla Raids Again, not Honda, and he died in 1973. So evidently the Kurosawa rule doesn't apply only to the director, or GRA would've become public domain in 2010. Of the film's writers and composers, the longest-lived was Masaru Sato, who passed away in 1999. That would put GRA in the public domain by 2037. Sounds like it would have to be settled in court either way, and I don't envy whoever tries to claim a Godzilla movie from Toho first.

It's also worth noting that Godzilla (1954) entering the public domain would not grant anyone limitless use of the Godzilla character, just the version in that film. If you wrote a story in 2049 where Godzilla had a nuclear pulse, spiky purple dorsal fins, or a tail beam, Toho would still pulverize you, because the films where those traits originated would still be theirs.

Confusing matters further, Godzilla's first media appearance was not the '54 film, but a radio drama adaptation, which aired from July 17 to September 25. That's an extremely obscure work, but expect Toho to bring it up in court if it has the slightest chance of extending their exclusive ownership of the character.

A number of American pop culture icons will enter the public domain before Godzilla, with Mickey Mouse first in line, so keep an eye on them for signs of how this is going to go.

Ok I understand... thank you!

From the Ars Technica article I linked to, seems like that's another question for the courts.

Lamango (talkcontribs)

I ain't trying to fight them, just wanna know why? Just want to have more information before they're added fully to the page or something?

Lamango (talkcontribs)

So you're not gonna justify me with an answer, huh?

The King of the Monsters (talkcontribs)

Because you're jumping the gun. Not until the monsters are officially confirmed and we have some idea of their roles will we be adding sections for Singular Point.

Lamango (talkcontribs)

We don't have any idea what Rodan's role is, and he has his OWN PAGE. I'm just confused at this point.

Shinomura (talkcontribs)

I first added the crossover the the Godzilla video game list, but I didn't imagine someone will make a page for the game, that is cool, yes.

As you were the creator of the page I have some questions to you about it.

1. Where you found the story/plot of the event?

2. When it says King Ghidorah can destroy this world.... it means the planet or the universe? Usually in japanese the word "world" means universe.

Thanks in advance!

Shinomura (talkcontribs)

Minor bump

The King of the Monsters (talkcontribs)

1. I think it was just in the description for the trailer for the event.

2. I have no idea.

Shinomura (talkcontribs)

Can you please show me the trailer for the event?

Shinomura (talkcontribs)

Minor bump

Shinomura (talkcontribs)

I dont wanna bother but please show me the trailer of the event

Shinomura (talkcontribs)

TrueLivingCorpse (talkcontribs)

I appreciate you trying to help but it's actually a super weapon aircraft like the Super-X and you have it in land vehicles. XD

TrueLivingCorpse (talkcontribs)

Thank you, that was driving me crazy.

G&G-Fan (talkcontribs)

Would you be willing to do me a favor and delete my comment on the Heisei Mothra page? It was incredibly immature and honestly it's embarrassing to even think back to it.

The King of the Monsters (talkcontribs)

Looks like ABB already did.
