It's all a part of Toho's plans to reinvent Godzilla into a J-horror movie about an evil DVD case.

But it doesn't include Godzilla 98. Hardly a complete series box set. :D

For that, Sony, Classic Media, or someone would have to sub-license every single movie that they don't currently have the rights to, which I don't see any of them doing (not even Sony). Toho doesn't really do releases much outside of Japan so the chances of us getting a beautiful set like that any time soon is very, very slim (nil, really).

At best, we can hope that over the years the companies that own larger amounts of Godzilla movies (namely CM and Sony at this point) slowly acquire one or two here and there over time and eventually just two or three companies have the rights to all the Godzilla movies in NA. They they could contract together for a nice release or one buys the other's entire Godzilla library, etc. But even that has problems because there are some movies that it's hard to see the current license holder letting out of their hands. Sony probably won't readily sell the rights to G98 because it's still a mainstream Hollywood movie at the end of the day. Universal has a death grip on KKvG as far as I know. Ones like those might have to be sub-licensed, and that's assuming both parties are interested.

Very messy for us not in Japan!

But that's not going to happen either because Classic Media doesn't want any more Godzilla movies.

Neither does Sony. Plus I would expected that Media Blasters is not especially keen on getting anything anytime soon given that drama AND the fact that DAM isn't ironed out yet. I was just saying.

I would expect MB to never release any in the future since they seem to barely have the money to release stuff they licensed ages ago or get proper distribution on titles they were actually able to release.
