After all, the 37th movie in Toho International’s long-running monster series is a period piece that shows Godzilla wreaking havoc in Japan as it fights to get back on its feet after World War II. Toho is giving fans a special one-week run of a newly updated black-and-white version as a “thank you” after the color version of Godzilla Minus One made more than $50 million in ticket sales in the U.S.

Japan opened Godzilla Minus One/Minus Color on January 12, and the U.S. will open it on January 26 for a short run. Kamikaze pilot Koichi (Ryunokuke Kamiki) decides not to die for his country in the last days of World War II. Instead, he fakes engine trouble and lands on an island military camp.

The bad news is that he picked the wrong time because he shows up right as Godzilla does and destroys everything in his path. Takashi Yamazaki, who directed and wrote the movie and added the special effects, said he was “very happy” with how Godzilla Minus One has been received so far in North America.

The black-and-white version, on the other hand, offers a more realistic and documentary-like look at Godzilla as he destroys Tokyo. “Godzilla Minus One/Minus Color will give people a new and intense experience, and I hope it will make them shiver with a new kind of fear!” Yamazaki also said.

Godzilla Minus One is now the most successful Japanese live-action or cartoon movie ever to come out in the U.S. The movie is also in the running for best special effects at the Academy Awards.
