"Mothra vs. Godzilla"

Unstoppable Monsters! week kicks off at Trailers from Hell, with director Mary Lambert introducing Ishiro Honda's "Mothra vs. Godzilla" (aka "Godzilla vs. The Thing").

When AIP released the US version they retitled it GODZILLA VS. THE THING, which was represented on the poster by a giant question mark with tentacles! Apparently Mothra was considered too wussy to be a credible adversary for Big G, who had just come off a grudge match with a ratty-looking gorilla billed as (but looking nothing like) King Kong. John Landis tries to explain that one here.
