The Kaiju Kingdom Podcast: Rise of the Kaiju Genre

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Co-hosts Jessica Tseang and Chris Eaton, along T. J. Storm (motion capture actor for Godzilla in Legendary's Godzilla, Colossus in Deadpool 2) and other panelists, discuss the growing kaiju genre. Since 1954, TOHO has dominated the kaiju film industry, and now, the genre has spread across multiple mediums around the world: anime, manga, video games, and comics. American films such as Godzilla (2014), Pacific Rim, and Kong: Skull Island have led to producing sequels Pacific Rim: Uprising, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and the highly anticipated Godzilla vs. Kong (2020). Veterans of the industry shed some light on the fascinating resurgence of the kaiju/monster genre and what it's like to be a part of this cultural phenomenon.
