Nuclear weapon testing resurrected this relic from the Jurassic age, and now it's rampaging across Japan. At night, Godzilla wades through Tokyo leaving death and destruction in his wake, disappearing into Tokyo Bay when his rage subsides. Coventional weapons are useless against him; but renowned scientist Dr. Serizawa has discovered a weapon that could destroy all life in the bay -- including Godzilla.

This is Tokyo...

once a city of six million people.

What has happened here

was caused by a force...

which, up until a few days ago,

was entirely...

beyond the scope

of man's imagination.

Tokyo - a smoldering memorial

to the unknown...

an unknown which,

at this very moment, still prevails...

and could at any time lash out

with its terrible destruction...

anywhere else in the world.

There were once many people here

who could have told of what they saw.

Now there are only a few.

My name is Steve Martin.

I'm a foreign correspondent

for United World News.

I was headed

for an assignment in Cairo...

when I stopped off in Tokyo

for a social call.

But it turned out to be a visit

to the living hell of another world.

Emergency hospitals were overflowing

with the maimed and the dead.

For the living,

the horror of last night was over.

The only thought left

was the paralyzing fear...

that it could happen again today...

or tomorrow.

[ Geiger Counter Clicking ]

Everyone who had survived

without serious injury...

was helping to repair

the human wreckage.

One of the survivors

was Emiko Yamane...

the daughter of Japan's

famous paleontologist.

For some of the victims,

there was hope.

For others,

there would be no tomorrow.

[ Child Wailing ]

I don't know

how many hours went by...

before an auxiliary

hospital unit found me.

I knew it was daylight.

I was surprised to be alive.

The odor of scorched flesh

permeated the air.

The sight of all the helpless

human wreckage...

snapped me back to stark reality.

[ Wailing Continues ]

[ Woman Sobbing ]

Emiko. Emiko!

Steve. Steve Martin.

Are you badly hurt?

After last night,

I'm lucky to be alive.

I guess we're all living

on borrowed time.

Oh, Steve,

what brought this upon us?

I don't know, Emiko.

I don't know.

Your father - is he all right?

Yes. He's meeting

with the security officials now.

[ Groans ]

Don't move, Steve.

I'll try to get a doctor for you.

[ Steve Narrating ]

It was still hard for me to believe...

that I could be lying here

in a hospital alive....

when I think of the thousands

of others dead and dying...

in the ruins around me.

When I think back,

only a few days ago...

I was en route to Cairo...

with a few days' layover in Tokyo.

I was looking forward to a visit

with an old college friend, Dr. Serizawa...

a theoretical scientist who was gaining

great recognition in the Far East...

for his unusual experiments.

While I was unaware

of it at the time...

10,000 feet below,

an incident was about to take place...

that would shake the foundations

of the civilized world.

DISTRESS FREQUENCY

[ Steve Narrating ] This morning,

it would have been impossible...

for anyone to convince me that I would

ever see Tokyo like this again.

- Pardon. You are Mr. Steve Martin?

- Yes.

I'm Shigeo Ioto,

assistant to Dr. Serizawa.

Oh, how do you do?

And how is Serizawa?

His health is fine, but he regrets

not being here to meet you.

Something wrong?

Dr. Serizawa had to go inland

on some field experiments.

He wanted to delay them

until after your visit...

but they were much too important.

- He hopes that you understand.

- Of course.

- Oh, when's he planning to return?

- Perhaps before your departure to Cairo.

Meanwhile, if there's anything I can do,
