ULTRAMAN TIGA is involved in a second assault on the American market.
Among the invited attendees at the February 21, 2003 screening were Godzilla suitmaker Shinichi Wakasa, writers Steve Ryfle and Richard Pusateri, myself, and Sony rep Michael Schlesinger, the man who had previously been in charge of the US release of GODZILLA 2000.
At the time, Sony and Toho were in negotiations for both GODZILLA VS MEGAGUIRUS (Gx M) and GODZILLA, MOTHRA, AND KING GHIDORAH: GIANT MONSTERS ALL-OUT ATTACK (GMK).
Tentative plans from Sony call for a US DVD release in the first half of 2004.
GODZILLA X MECHAGODZILLA was first shown in the US by Toho at the American Film Marketplace in Santa Monica, CA.
