GODZILLA VS. THE BIONIC MONSTER / ORIGINAL U.S. ONE-SHEET MOVIE POSTER
In 1977, Cinema Shares purchased the rights to Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla and released the movie
through Downtown Distribution under the title Godzilla vs. Bionic Monster. As they had done with
Godzilla vs. Megalon the previous year, Cinema Shares simply utilized the Toho-produced English
dub. In July 1977, Universal Studios filed a lawsuit threat against Cinema Shares, claiming that the
title was too similar to their TV productions, The Six Million Dollar Man and its spin-off The Bionic
Woman. Cinema Shares retitled the film Godzilla vs. Cosmic Monster.
