It is time to think bigger as Godzilla: King of the Monsters is set to hit cinemas worldwide this weekend. KOTM will be the second Godzilla film and third entry into Legendary's Monsterverse.
Since the monster's debut in 1954, Godzilla has been a steady presence on screen. As of today Godzilla tops such properties as James Bond and the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the longest running movie franchise of all-time.
With such a long and storied history Godzilla has taken many different forms. Every generation has been treated to their own version of the beast, some marveling at a larger than life God-like figure that protects the planet. Others were given a destructive force and apocalyptic threat to humanity. A lucky few even got to see Godzilla on water skis in an ad for Snickers (real thing that actually happened).
Considering that Godzilla is a large, atomic breath having, prehistoric beast it is amazing just how many iterations we have seen so far. Some have been better and more memorable than others, so before he graces our screens again lets take time to reflect on the King of the Monsters.
