Showa Gamera Movies To Be Released By Shout Factory
by Armand Vaquer
There's good news for kaiju fans!
Shout Factory is on the lookout for a 35mm scope print of the U.S. version of Daiei's 1965 feature Daikaiju Gamera, released here as Gammera The Invincible.
Shout Factory has licensed this film along with the 7 other early Showa Gamera films from Kadokawa Pictures, who now owns the Gamera character. Unfortunately, Kadokawa does not own a copy of the U.S. version.
Shout Factory plans to release these movies in HD transfer along with new subtitles and many extras.
The last Gamera movie was Gamera The Brave, released in 2006 by Kadokawa Pictures.
