The spot at which Android M11 stops Emmy and Terasawa in their jeep in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah. Photo by Brett Homenick.
On March 30, I took a trip to Keihinjima (an island in Ota Ward right next to Haneda Airport) to check out a filming location for Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991). It was the setting for the iconic (infamous?) scene in which Android M11 stops the jeep that Terasawa and Emmy are driving right in their tracks. The photo at the top of the post is the spot where Android M11 stops running and turns to face the oncoming jeep. It's also seen from M11's point of view as he runs toward the jeep. (It was apparently used twice, despite the obvious lack of continuity.)
The above shot is about where you see Android M11 passing the jeep while running. You can barely see a Shell station sign on the left-hand side of the photo. In the movie, you can see a sign for a different gas station at the same spot. (This was taken in the opposite lane from the first photo in this blog post.)
This photo was taken from the same lane as the previous photo, but from the opposite angle. It's the same street used for when M11 is running past Terasawa and Emmy in the jeep.
This shot was taken in the same lane as the first photo, but from the opposite direction. At the far end, you can see where Android M11 began his run after his car accident. It was also used for M11's point of view as he runs after the jeep.
And there I am, standing about where M11 ceased running to stop the jeep and lift it off the ground. After running home, I realized I didn't get some shots that I wished I had, so I might have to return there someday. It was quite fun seeing Kazuki Omori and his crew shot one of the most memorable scenes of the Heisei era.
