“Godzilla Minus One” stands as one of the greatest Godzilla films ever made. Technically a follow-up to “Oppenheimer,” it’s also a nod to the 1954 original film and at times a parody of “Jaws.”Yes, the 33rd movie in the series seems both incredibly strange and reassuringly familiar.
The filmmaker Takashi Yamazaki revealed on December 20, 2023, that Godzilla Minus One will make its black-and-white premiere in Japan on January 12, 2024.
Regarding the monochrome version of the film, which is known as Godzilla Minus One/C in Japan, Yamazaki stated, via Fangoria, “We are finally able to announce Godzilla-1.0/C, which we have been working on for a long time.” Instead of simply turning it all black and white, I asked them to tweak each clip individually and use every available matte as though they were shooting a brand-new film. A look that suggested the work of master monochrome photographers was what I was going for.
Godzilla Minus One Black-and-White Version Release Date
The movie Godzilla Minus One Minus Color will open in theaters nationwide on Friday, January 26, 2024. A later screening of Godzilla Minus One Minus Color, the monochrome version of the film, will be available in American theaters.
A week will pass before Godzilla Minus One Minus Color and the original, colorized Godzilla Minus One exit cinemas on February 1, 2024, after the remastered black-and-white version of the film opens.

This is an attempt to cash in on the film’s phenomenal success both domestically and internationally, which may help it surpass the $100 million milestone in total receipts.
While some critics have expressed doubts about the film’s worth and impact factor in the absence of its original color scheme, other movies—like Mad Max: Fury Road, “Logan Noir,” and Parasite—have also dabbled in black and white editing, though these have usually been Blu-ray supplements rather than theatrical releases.
