Yessir. In fact, it would have expired in 2010, I believe.
I look forward to what kpa finds out regarding all this.
Gvamp, in my last post I wote, "Toho hasn't told me any specifics about the contractual issues for GODZILLA 1985" and "my best guess is that Toho had a similar deal with New World". Nowhere did I say-- nor was I suggesting-- that there was a contract between Toho and New World for 25 years. What I said (and what I meant) is that Toho and New World may have had a long-term deal along the lines of what Toho did with Hanna-Barbera... as in all rights would revert to Toho after a set number of years. Since Toho recently said they were still waiting, obviously that means the deal was for more than 25 years. But exactly how long that may be has not been said.

Keith needs a custom title:
"TK's Resident Media God"
There's always going to be new rumors and unconfirmed reports popping up, and sometimes they'll turn out to be true. But by sharing accurate info from direct sources we can all have a better chance of separating the facts from the fiction. I'm just happy to help when I can and to learn from you guys, too.
