"There is so much writing in English on Japanese cinema that can't be accepted at face value — not because the writers are careless, but because the differences in culture and language are just too intricate. When I see August Ragone's name on a piece of writing, it gives me permission to place my faith in it completely. Among Japanese fantasy film historians, he's the best working in English." —Tim Lucas, Video Watchdog

"KING KONG VS. GODZILLA" 4K REMASTER SHOTS
Teaser Compares Old Master & New Restoration!

4Kリマスター完全版『キングコング対ゴジラ』の比較ショット!



On October 1st of 2015, I reported on the then-upcoming Nihon Eiga Senmon Channel's satellite cable broadcast of a newly-complete and restored version of KING KONG VS. GODZILLA (read more here), which was followed up this past May 1st's breaking story on the 4k remaster of the film, which has been in sore need of a proper restoration for more than forty years (read more here).



Here are screenshots from a teaser trailer that just began running, comparing the 2015 restoration with the 2016 4k Remaster bowing on the satellite cable provider this coming July. The full teaser trailer was unavailable at press time, but will be featured in a future update once it has been uploaded by NESC. For now, there are eight images for you to compare.



Stay tuned to this blog for more updates on this story as they break!

Really looking forward to seeing it.

Looks cool! Jope it will have some missing footage inserted as well!

Oh wow, it looks like the night scene visibility will be particularly improved!

August Ragone said...

Gojira Gigantis,
Unfortunately, there is no "missing footage" to be inserted. Just all of the scenes restored to the original 1962 theatrical release version versus the shortened 1970 kiddie matinee version.

Cheers,
August

That Kong suit is going to look even worse in 4K!
