YouTuber GORIZARD recreated the new trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters using old Godzilla footage from film company Toho. Before Godzilla emerged from the water in the States, it began in Japan in 1954 as Gojira under Toho’s umbrella.

The film revolved around a humanoid lizard who attacked Shinagawa after being created by American nuclear weapons testing. Since then, Toho has released several Godzilla films, with the older movies now referred to as the “Showa Era.” These earlier films introduced kaiju like Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah, all three of which are slated to appear in the new film.

Check out the spliced footage above and share your thoughts below.
