We’d also like to take a moment today to acknowledge the passing of Japanese stuntman and actor Haruo Nakajima, who was the first actor to play Godzilla and did so in every film in the series up until Godzilla vs. Gigan in 1972. He was 88. Haruo-san also worked with director Akira Kurosawa on Stray Dogs, Seven Samurai, and The Hidden Fortress. A worthy giant monster among mere mortals, and he’ll be missed.

We’ll leave you with a look at a bunch more new Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD cover artwork (with Amazon.com pre-order links if available – please show your support of our work here at The Bits by shopping through our links whenever you can!)...
