August Ragone, author of the must-have book "Eiji Tsuburaya: Master of Monsters" (available on Amazon) has some great news. On his blog, "The Good, The Bad, and Godzilla," Mr. Ragone confirmed the release of double feature DVD sets coming May 6th 2014.

The titles have already been listed on Amazon.com by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Below is the list of the four double features with links to Amazon.

GODZILLA FINAL WARS (2004) & GODZILLA: TOKYO SOS (2003)

August Ragone notes, "Conspicuously missing are GODZILLA 2000 (1999), GIANT MONSTERS ALL-OUT ATTACK (2001), and GODZILLA AGAINST MECHAGODZILLA (2002). It's unknown at this time if these will follow — I'll keep checking on sources..."

Thanks for the heads-up August Ragone!
