- This is the thirty-second feature film in the entire Godzilla franchise. It is the second movie made by an American production company. It is the second Godzilla that takes place primarily in the United States, though it is actually the third film to feature the monster Godzilla rampaging in the United States.
- A prequel graphic novel, Godzilla: Awakening, was released on May 7th, 2014, to coincide with the release of the film. Although the graphic novel expands upon the origins of the M.U.T.O.s as well as Monarch, it does not contain any information that would spoil plotlines from the film. Godzilla and Ishiro Serizawa are the only characters to appear in both the graphic novel and the film.
Fun Facts Edit
- Doctor Ishiro Serizawa's name is taken from two different sources. His first name is taken from Ishirô Honda, who created by Godzilla franchise back in 1954 and directed many films from the series. The last name is taken from Daisuke Serizawa-hakase, who was the main scientist character from Gojira.
- Easter egg: A reference is made to Mothra in this film. When Joe and Ford Brody return to Joe's home in Janjira, there is an upturned terrarium with the name Mothra written upon a label.
- Easter egg: During the early scenes in Janjira, there is a close-up of an iguana. This may or may not be a nod to the 1998 American remake of Godzilla by Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich.
- Actor Akira Takarada, who plays a Japanese immigration agent in this film, played the leading role of Hideto Ogata in the original 1954 classic, Gojira.
