Gojira Vs. Biorante (1989)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Following the events of Godzilla 1985, scientists collect genetic material from the mutated dinosaur Godzilla's scales. A Middle Eastern country wants the samples for their own purposes, but meanwhile, a lonely scientist combines Godzilla's genetic code with those of a rose and his own deceased daughter. The result is Biollante, an eerie plant of titanic proportions. To make matters worse, a psychic woman detects Godzilla stirring from his volcanic prison. The military sends the flying Super-X2 to stop the beast from thrashing Japan, but eventually Godzilla engages the rapidly mutating Biollante in a fight to the death.
The most terrifying monster of all time is back in his greatest movie ever

More Movie Taglines:
- The most terrifying monster of all time is back in his greatest movie ever
- The ultimate battle has only just begun.
- [on creating Biollante] Dr. Shiragami: I think now I might have made a mistake.
Lieutenant Goro Gondo: All that intravenous stuff's no good for you. Stick to smoking.
Dr. Shiragami: Godzilla and Biollante aren't monsters. It's the unscrupulous scientists who create them that are monsters.
- Was originally going to feature a fish-rat hybrid named Deautalios, another of Dr. Shiragami's creations. Deautalios was to battle Godzilla and lose, after which Godzilla devoured the creature's flesh. Later on, Deautalios was written out and replaced with the rose form of Biollante.
In 1986, a contest was held to decide the plot for the next Godzilla movie. The winner was Shinichirô Kobayashi, a dentist and part-time screenwriter. After the script was heavily altered, the movie came to the screen in 1989. However, the second place script would later become the other Toho science fiction film, Ganheddo (1989).
After this film failed in the Japanese box office, Toho believed it was because Biollante was an unfamiliar kaiju to the fans. So, Toho decided to bring back old enemies of Godzilla for the next few films, beginning with _Gojira tai Kingu Gidorâ (1991)_.
First Godzilla film to be made in Japan's Heisei era (Emperor Hirohito had died early the same year, thus was the end of Showa and the beginning of Heisei).
