The Visual Evolution Of Godzilla

Updated 21 Nov 2019 23.3k views14 items

Godzilla is easily one of the most recognizable movie monsters of all time, and there's a good reason for that. He's been terrorizing people all over the world for more than 65 years.

In the many decades since his first appearance in 1954, the titan has appeared in just about every form of media imaginable - from movies to television shows to comics, and from video games to lunchboxes. There aren't many people who can't recognize Godzilla when they see him.

That's not to say his appearance hasn't changed over the years. He's no longer a guy in a rubber suit kicking down someone's model city. Yet despite his upgrade into the visual effects world of CGI, he still looks like Godzilla. This list rounds up the key films between 1954's Godzilla and 2019's Godzilla: King of the Monsters that mark the monster's visual evolution - to see just how this cautionary tale of nuclear conflict and the wastefulness of humanity has changed over the years.
