All of the Mothra films would be nice. I think they were all dubbed except the third in the 1990's trilogy. Some more Toho tokusatsu films would be great. Gorath, The Last War, The Secret of Telegian, The Human Vapour, The Three Treasures, Battle in Outer Space, H-Man, Magnitude 7.9, Prophecies of Nostradamus, ESPY and Sinking of Japan (2006) all need English subtitled releases.

Many of those films are available on American DVDs and look fantastic. However, I would second the notion for seeing Madman release the Mothra films. I don't know if they can get the rights to the original Mothra, since it was co-produced by Columbia and so Sony probably has worldwide rights outside of Asia. However, as for Rebirth of Mothra III, the one with King Ghidorah, it has gone unreleased anywhere outside of Japan... Crying or Very sad

I know I`ve already said this, but given the topic, I`d LOVE to see;

GAMERA: GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE (1995)

GAMERA 2: ADVENT OF LEGION (1996)

GAMERA 3: AWAKENING OF IRYS (1999)

I hate to be picky, but that order would be nice too, for the sake of understanding them properly!
I was considering getting hold of the Region 1 DVDs of these films, but since Madman/Eastern Eye`s DVDs are usually superior to such imports, I would gladly wait if Eastern Eye/Madman chose to release them.

Toho did create an English dub for REBIRTH OF MOTHRA 3. The dubbing stinks.

The Tokyo Broadcasting System has international rights to the new SINKING OF JAPAN. No word on a US, British, or Australia release but TBS does have an English subbed print that has been shown at festivals and trade shows like the American Film Market. A lot of Japanese films shown at AFM end up on DVD and I expect SINKING OF JAPAN will too. The movie is excellent and has some great fx.

Sony has US rights to REBIRTH OF MOTHRA 3. While they haven't released it on video yet, the film has been shown on television on the Sci-Fi Channel. Sony also has an English dubbed theatrical print of ROM3 that has played at festivals and arthouse theaters in America; I saw the movie at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood back in 2000.

Looks like the 2006 version is coming out in Hong Kong. And so is the highly un PC parody of the film/novel, The World Sinks Except Japan. Got the HK version of the 1973 version of Japan Sinks/Submersion of Japan, and I really enjoyed it. The SFX were quite good, and I was particularly surprised with how good a lot of the water sequences were handled. Didn't realise Canberra looked so much like the Japanese countryside as depicted in the film! Laughing Some of the disaster scenes were quite violent and bloody, compared to Hollywood's disaster flicks of the same era. Any more Toho/Japanese disaster flicks made in that period?

I think you listed all the Toho disaster films in an earlier post here. The only exception may be the 1975 movie CONFLAGRATION, which was released in the US as the butchered HIGH SEAS HIJACK. http://www.amctv.com/show/detail?CID=9337-1-1

A few other movies from other studios come to mind. Kadokawa Pictures' VIRUS (1980) had an international cast (including Glenn Ford, Robert Vaugh, Chuck Connors, and George Kennedy) dealing with a disease that wipes out humanity. Shochiku's GENOCIDE (1968) is about a plague of insects. While not traditional disaster movies, both GOKE BODYSNATCHER FROM HELL and KAIRO (PULSE) deal with" end of the world" scenarios.

I'm working on a lengthy article about SINKING OF JAPAN which will on http://www.scifijapan.com/ in the next few days.
