BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwired - May 15, 2014) - On the occasion of the release of a new Godzilla movie, FilmOn Networks has culled the very best giant monster, or Kaiju, movies from its vaults, restored them, and rereleased them for streaming on Bloodzillathon, a 24/7 channel devoted solely to the genre. From Gamera to Yongary, Giant Robo, Bloodzillathon has all the fire breathing, laser eye ray, building stomping mayhem we expect from mid to late Twentieth Century Japan.
The launch is the latest in a surge of content acquisitions FilmOn has made including the purchase of the largest privately held film and TV archive Cine Bx which includes the legendary Allied Library. Tens of thousands of VoDs have been restored and added to what is already the most robust content offering in streaming TV. FilmOn has 600 licensed live television channels and is ready to roll out free-to-air local broadcast channels in 18 cities in June.
"We want a whole new generation to be able to access these remarkably entertaining movies," Alki David, CEO of FilmOn Networks says. "It's the beauty of running the streaming TV network with this vast, prestigious collection. These films inspired filmmakers such as Quentin Tarantino, Peter Jackson and Guillermo del Toro and it's time for them to inspire a new generation."
Highlights include several movies featuring Gamera, a giant flying turtle monster who was Kadokawa Pictures' answer to rival Toho Pictures' main monster, Godzilla. Many aficionados have found Gamera the superior monster over the years. (He was born of a stray Soviet nuclear bomb released in the Arctic). The collection has "Gamera v. Monster X", "Gamera The Invincible", "Attack of the Monsters", "Destroy all Planets" and others.
