Fair use rationale for Image:GVMGII.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:GVMGII.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Hello, i read the plot description after just watching this film and i must say it looks incorrect. I don't know if its that way because of the difference between the dub and the sub, but i think it needs to be looked into... (talk) 14:28, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Exposition needed in passage[edit]

The second paragraph reads, "The JSDF mobilizes Mechagodzilla..." Who is the JSDF? You can't just drop a mention of a new organization into the synopsis, and with an abbreviated name; you have to establish who or what they are. If the name is an abbreviation, then the full name needs to be initially spelled out. Is this the organization known as G-Force? Is this the first appearance of that group?

Citations needed[edit]

After the film was released in Japan, Toho commissioned a Hong Kong company to dub the film into English. In this international version of the movie, an English title card was superimposed over the Japanese title, as had been done with the previous 90s Godzilla films. So far, the only known evidence of this version's existence is a Hindi dubbed version cannibalized from a fully mixed English print.

In past English dubbed films, as well as many Godzilla video game titles that were also given an English release, Rodan's name was pronounced "roh-dan." In Japan, however, his name has always been pronounced (and spelled) as "rah-don." Therefore, in the English version of this film, the producers changed his name back to Radon, as it is in Japan.

Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment released Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II on home video on August 3, 1999. This was the first time the film had been officially released in the United States. Instead of using the original monaural English dub, a new stereo version, also produced in Hong Kong but with a different cast was used. TriStar additionally cut the end credits and created new titles and opening credits. An anamorphic widescreen transfer of this "new" English version was later released on DVD by TriStar in February 2005 with the option to listen to the original Japanese audio.

The film sold approximately 3,800,000 tickets in Japan grossing roughly $18,000,000 (U.S).[citation needed]
