Another thing to remind me of my age.

 The Asahi Shimbun has reported that the official portal website of Toho Co., Ltd. has been updated to celebrate Godzilla's 60th anniversary.

They wrote:
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of “Godzilla,” Toho Co. has updated its official portal site and is offering brief introductions of all 28 titles of the monster movie series for fans. 
The anniversary will be celebrated with the releases of the new Hollywood remake of the series and the first digitally remastered version of the original “Godzilla,” which first hit theaters in 1954. 
In addition, the website provides information for Godzilla and his rival “kaiju” monsters, with large photos, and features the weapons used in each film. 
There is also a special section titled “Ore to Godzilla” (me and Godzilla), where interviews with Godzilla fans will be updated. The first guest will be revealed soon.
Unfortunately, it is all in Japanese.

Additionally, Rialto Pictures is releasing the 1954 original Godzilla to selected theaters in U.S. cities starting in New York in April to celebrate the Big Guy's anniversary. This is the same restored version that Rialto released ten years ago for Godzilla's 50th anniversary. (See previous post by Ken Hulsey.)
