According to Dread Central, monster fans will be rejoicing because Rialto Pictures is releasing a restored and uncut Japanese version of Godzilla (Gojira). This version will be the exact version that audiences saw 60 years ago in Japan. Now it's making its way in theaters around America.

Godzilla was first released in 1954 and it had been directed by Ishiro Honda. He was known for his many kaiju and tokusatsu films.

At the moment the film will be screening in March in Austin at the Alamo Ritz 1, for April the movie will be in New York at the Film Forum, also in April at the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe. For May, Godzilla will be screening in several cities like Portland, Houston, and Seattle. Those are just some of the places that have been announced at the moment.

The original version (not the 1956 American release) first played in theaters in 2004.
