MOTHRA VS. GODZILLA
Aka "Godzilla vs. The Thing", "Godzilla vs. Mothra"
“King Kong vs. Godzilla” proved to be a monster success at the box office stomping and demolishing all the competition so Toho knew that monster battles were the future of the “Godzilla” franchise. Toho spent a pretty penny licensing the character of King Kong from an American studio so they decided to keep Godzilla’s next foe in-house and what better enemy than the title character from their 1961 hit “Mothra”. Could a giant, divine Moth prove to be a respectable opponent for the ‘king of monsters’? That would be a BIG hell yes as the combination resulted in one of the strongest sequels into the entire “Godzilla” franchise.
Godzilla would return in “Ghodorah, the Three-Headed Monster”
