Godzilla To Get Star On Walk Of Fame

Fire-breathing movie monster GODZILLA has been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

A ceremony will honour the giant lizard in front of Hollywood Boulevard's famed Grauman's Chinese Theatre on 29 November (04), the day and location of the premiere of GODZILLA FINAL WARS.

The movie, the 28th in the series, will mark 50 years since the genetically-altered dinosaur emerged from the sea.

Known in Japan as 'GOJIRA' from a combination of the words for gorilla and whale, the monster first appeared in director ISHIRO HONDA's 1954 black-and-white classic.
