How to Watch ALL the Godzilla Movies

There have been 38 Godzilla movies since 1954—here’s where to stream every last one of them on Netflix, Max, Prime Video, and more.

Since it debuted almost 70 years ago, the Godzilla movie franchise has become the biggest monster property on the planet (sorry, King Kong). It took America until 2014 to make a worthy Godzilla flick, but Japan has been cranking them out since 1954, so we’ve rounded up every one of them with our own ‘Zilla streaming guide.

Godzilla movies and where to stream them

38. Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire (2024)

Kong lives inside the Hollow Earth, Godzilla roams the surface world, and the Monarch organization works to keep them apart—which, as we all know, they can’t. Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire is a CGI-heavy battle-palooza with a slightly overcomplicated plot, but still entertaining.

Godzilla Minus One (2023)

37. Godzilla Minus One (2023)

Set in post-WWII Japan and focused on just one threat (Godzilla, of course), Godzilla Minus One is being praised as one of the franchise’s best-ever movies. It’s a classic man vs. monster tale with stunning cinematography that doesn’t rely on digital excess. Watch it subbed, not dubbed.

36. Godzilla vs. Kong (2021)

Five years after Godzilla defeated Ghidorah and went on vacation, he’s back and rampaging around the world. Monarch calls up Kong from Skull Island to try and stop him, but both monsters end up getting a beatdown from Mechagodzilla, a laser-breathed robot. Can ‘Zilla and Kong work together? You bet.

35. Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)

Godzilla fights Mothra, Rodan, and the three-headed Ghidorah for the crown of “King of the Monsters,” even though the outcome has already been given away by the movie’s title. There’s also an underlying ecological message about the monsters saving the planet from itself, but it’s mostly scaly scuffling.

34. Godzilla: The Planet Eater (2018)

Earth turns to Godzilla as its unlikely savior when the alien Ghidorah arrives to destroy the world. The tagline for this animated Japanese production is “Bow down and worship the Golden Demise,” but no planets are actually eaten.

30. Godzilla (2014)

The American reboot of Godzilla, which is also the first film of Legendary Pictures’ Monsterverse franchise, finally got it right after failed attempts in the ’80s and ’90s (more on them below). Reportedly, this Godzilla made even Quentin Tarantino cry for joy.

29. Godzilla: Final Wars (2014)

A 50th-anniversary Japanese production, Godzilla: Final Wars finds our … hero? … being released from captivity to battle alien monsters that have invaded Earth. Fast and furious, but far from final.

28. Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. (2003)

Mothra returns to Tokyo to warn humanity that Godzilla and Mechagodzilla must be taken back to the sea or face dire consequences. Like Godzilla and Mechagodzilla throwing down in the city? Yes, like that.

27. Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla (2002)

To defend itself against a new Godzilla, the Japanese government creates Mechagodzilla using the bones of the original Godzilla. So, a Godzilla turducken?

24. Godzilla 2000 (1999)

America’s 1998 Godzilla bombed so badly that Toho felt compelled to rush out Godzilla 2000 to make up for it. This time, ’Zilla brawls with a new alien monster, Orga (yes, that’s the name—they were obviously in a hurry).

23. Godzilla (1998)

Director Roland Emmerich has made some decent disaster flicks (Independence Day, 2012, The Day After Tomorrow), but his Godzilla is just a disaster of a flick. The much-hyped American comeback is basically warmed-over Jurassic Park with a post-grunge soundtrack and Ferris Bueller as an “action hero.”

22. Godzilla vs. Destoroyah (1995)

Godzilla has developed a glow—and not the good kind. The nuclear energy inside him is overheating to the point he could explode, so the G-Force cools him off by freezing him. Meanwhile, the airborne Destoroyah lives up to its lethal moniker.

21. Godzilla vs. Spacegodzilla (1994)

Godzilla faces dual threats: the United Nations-built Mogera and Spacegodzilla, which was born from Godzilla’s cells and a black hole (this is somehow connected to that one time Mothra went to space to stop a meteor). Also in the mix: Junior Godzilla.

19. Godzilla & Mothra: The Battle for Earth (1992)

Japan is caught in the middle of the worst threesome ever: Godzilla, Mothra, and her evil counterpart, Battra, as they fight it out and—you guessed it—smash everything in sight.

18. Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991)

Time travelers from the 23rd century arrive in the 90s to inform Japan that Godzilla is a danger (thanks for that newsflash). They then go back to 1944 to stop the creation of Godzilla but instead bring forth King Ghidorah. Does a battle ensue? Are you new here?

17. Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989)

The Japanese government enlists a geneticist to create a new monster from the cells of Godzilla, a human, and … a rose plant. Don’t laugh: Godzilla vs. Biollante was voted the best Godzilla movie in a 2014 Japanese fan poll.

16. Godzilla 1985 (1985)

After a 10-year absence, Godzilla 1985 brought the big green guy back to theaters. The movie also brought back Raymond Burr as the coincidentally named journalist Steve Martin from 1956’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters! (an American recut of the first Godzilla movie).

15. Terror of Mechagodzilla (1975)

Believed-dead scientist Dr. Mafube is revealed to not only be alive but also working with aliens from a black hole to destroy Godzilla with the twin forces of Mechagodzilla 2 and Titanosaurus. Can his daughter Katsura stop him? Awkward.

14. Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1975)

Aliens bent on taking over Earth have brought a secret weapon: Mechagodzilla, an android version of Godzilla designed to battle the real thing. It was built over 50 years ago, and Mechagodzilla still looks cooler than a Cybertruck.

13. Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973)

Seatopia monster god Megalon teams up with Gigan to lay waste to the surface world—until flying android Jet Jaguar recruits Godzilla to help defeat them. Naturally, the surface world is laid to waste in the battle, anyway.

12. Godzilla vs. Gigan (1972)

From their secret headquarters in a Godzilla-themed amusement park, aliens lure space monsters Gigan and King Ghidrah to Earth, and only the unlikely team of Godzilla and Anguirus (an oversized armadillo) can stop them.

11. Godzilla vs. Hedorah (1971)

Hedorah, a space creature from the Dark Gaseous Nebula, lands on Earth to eat its pollution. Doesn’t seem like a bad thing, but Godzilla is mightily opposed to it—he was never much of an environmentalist, after all.

10. All Monsters Attack (1969)

Bored and lonely, young boy Ichiro imagines himself away to Monster Island, where he hangs out with Minilla, the son of Godzilla. Yes, All Monsters Attack is just a fantasy in a kid’s mind. But if you’ve read this far, you’re probably not concerned about “real” stories.

9. Destroy All Monsters (1968)

In the distant future of 1999, an all-female race of aliens brainwashes its monsters to attack major Earth cities from their base on the moon. Why would this require brainwashing? Godzilla and the gang do it all the time, unprompted.

8. Son of Godzilla (1967)

A reporter follows Godzilla to a remote island in the South Seas, where the big softie discovers a baby monster and adopts him as his own. The reporter also stumbles across scientists conducting weather experiments that inadvertently create giant, mutated mantises—what a scoop!

7. Ebirah, Horror of the Deep (1966)

Shipwrecked on Letchi Island, a search crew discovers a group of natives enslaved and forced to fend off Ebirah, a crustacean monster. Purely coincidentally, Godzilla is taking a nap on the same island. Best of all, the tagline for Ebirah, Horror of the Deep is “This is one lobster you don’t want to order!”

6. Invasion of Astro-Monster (1965)

Astronauts explore Planet X and learn that its inhabitants, the Xiliens, have their own problem in Monster Zero, a three-headed flying terror. Earth then offers to loan out Godzilla and Rodan to fight Monster Zero, which sounds like a great plan.

5. Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964)

Are King Ghidorah and Monster Zero the same tri-headed creature? Hard to say, but Mothra must convince frenemies Godzilla and Rodan to team up to defeat him and save the planet. Godzilla counters with, “We have no reason to help humans. Humans are always bullying us.” Legit.

4. Mothra vs. Godzilla (1964)

When the corporate goons of Happy Enterprises steal an egg from Mothra’s island, her fairies travel to Japan to plead for its return. Then Godzilla shows up inconveniently, and Japan asks for Mothra’s help to fight him off. The gall of humans, huh?

3. King Kong vs. Godzilla (1963)

The chairman of a pharmaceutical company seeks publicity by acquiring a monster. So, he captures King Kong and brings him to Japan because apparently billboards aren’t enough to sell aspirin. The epic showdown of King Kong vs. Godzilla was Japan’s Star Wars of the time.

2. Godzilla Raids Again (1955)

Though Godzilla was killed at the end of the first movie (spoiler), a second Godzilla and another monster, Anguirus, are discovered at sea—and they’re heading for Japan. Factoid: The fight scenes in Godzilla Raids Again were meant to be in slow motion but were accidentally sped up, and they just went with it.

1. Godzilla (1954)

The one, the only, the original Godzilla! When a giant beast is awakened from its undersea hibernation by atomic bomb testing, he ambles directly to Tokyo to complain to the manager—and trash the place, of course. The rubber monster suit and the effects look ridiculous, but Godzilla was a deadly serious commentary on America’s WWII bombing of Japan and the toll of nuclear war. But also fun!
