October is shaping up to be one of the biggest, if not THE biggest, month of the year for us with two kaiju releases, “Nezura 1964” later this month, and this one, the eagerly awaited “The Great Buddha Arrival” on limited edition Blu-ray and VHS.
This is a PRE-ORDER title. Please note the expected shipping date of Mid-January 202. Then give us about 2 weeks after that to get all pre-orders in the mail. We will not be responding to inquires on order status until 2 weeks after the estimated ship date has passed. Thanks!
A gigantic statue of Buddha awakens and goes on a trek across Japan while the world watches in awe. Featuring an all-star cast of beloved actors from kaiju cinema’s history. A modern day reboot of the long lost, and quite possibly first daikaiju film, classic Daibutsu Kaikoku (1934) is a must-see love letter to kaiju cinema with an all-star cast. Directed by Hiroto Yokokawa.

“I wasn’t expecting something as fresh and different, so it far exceeded expectations. I’m very glad such a strange and original film now exists in my favorite genre.” -Kyle Byrd of Kaiju Transmissions Podcast.
“This movie is a banana-sandwich…I was not remotely prepared for what it was…one of the most INTERESTING things I’ve seen in a while … It’s not predictable, it IS fun, and it’s a wild ride. “
-Tom Gueli of Letterboxed.
“an interesting combination of documentary, docu-drama, meta-homage, and sequel to the original-but-now-lost film that inspired it. I’m so glad that “The Great Buddha Arrival” exists”.
