How? It wouldn't piss me off. They can put Japan in it if they want, or they can set the film somewhere else. It wouldn't bug me in the least. As long as they get GODZILLA right, I don't care where it's at. And honestly, Godzilla has smashed Japan enough as it is. It's an American film and it needs to be done in a setting that is familiar to American people. Godzilla just needs a nuclear origin. His origin doesn't have to revolve around the bomb dropped on Japan by America. It could be any number of things.
