Godzilla draws the average male from child to adult and science fiction lovers from all around the world. This type of movie does not appeal to young girls and non-science fiction fanatics, due to the average girl's interest being more focused on pony's and butterflies.

He added stock footage and graphic death and destruction scenes from the newsreel footage from WW II. In that time period this was one of the first black and white movies to be colorized.In conclusion, you can see where Godzilla originated from and how the movies have evolved from a mediocre black and white film that made it's way throughout the world and became a cult classic. While liked by many different genres this movie has had an impact on todays society and will continue to grab the curiosity of the new and upcoming production of the latest movie that is set for 2018.
