Source: Wikipedia

Godzilla (ゴジラ, Gojira?) (/ɡɒdˈzɪlə/; [ɡoꜜdʑiɽa] ( listen)) is a giant monster or daikaiju originating from a series of tokusatsu films of the same name from Japan. It first appeared in Ishirō Honda's 1954 film Godzilla. Since then, Godzilla has gone on to become a worldwide pop culture icon starring in 28 films produced by Toho Co., Ltd. The character has appeared in numerous media including video games, novels, comic books, television series, and two Hollywood reboots: one produced by TriStar Pictures released in 1998 as Godzilla[Note 1] and a second produced by Legendary Pictures released in 2014 also as Godzilla, with the latter studio proceeding with a planned trilogy. The character is commonly alluded to by the title King of the Monsters, a phrase first used in Godzilla, King of the Monsters!, the Americanized version of Honda's original 1954 film.
