Golden Gate Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge is a famous suspension bridge that spans San Francisco Bay. It appears in one scene in the 2014 American Godzilla film, and was also planned to appear in two unmade American Godzilla films.


Unmade Films

Godzilla: King of the Monsters 3-D

A group of KGB agents kidnap Kevin, the son of Navy Colonel Peter Daxton, in an attempt to force him to return two prototype anti-fission missiles stolen from a sunken Soviet submarine. The agents take Kevin to a hidden base located in the Golden Gate Bridge. Kevin manages to escape his bonds and tries to flee, while Godzilla appears from the bay and attacks and destroys the bridge.

Godzilla (1994)

After annihilating the Navy's forces in San Francisco Bay, Godzilla swims towards the city. With the possibility of a nuclear strike ruled out, Jill Llewellyn theorizes that the best way to stop Godzilla before he makes landfall is to tranquilize him with the bizarre amniotic fluid he was initially found with. The fluid is dumped into San Francisco Bay, and Godzilla swims right through it. Losing consciousness, Godzilla climbs onto the Golden Gate Bridge and becomes entangled in the bridge's cables, then collapses on the southern end of the bridge. With Godzilla sedated, the military airlifts him to a research base in New York.

Pacific Rim

In the opening of the movie, the first kaiju to attack, TresPasser, walk through the bridge like Godzilla 2014 did while getting attack by the military.

Godzilla 2014 Bridge

Godzilla smashes through the Golden Gate Bridge in Godzilla (2014)

While civilians were evacuating San Francisco on the Golden Gate Bridge, Godzilla surfaced out of the bay and approached the city. Battleships were deployed in the water to stop Godzilla, while tanks lined up on the bridge to fire at him. As Godzilla approached the bridge, he grabbed onto the suspension cables, taking multiple artillery shells from both sides. One blast hit Godzilla directly in his gills, causing him to smash through the bridge as a reaction, tearing it in half. Godzilla regained his footing and roared loudly, before making his way into the city to take on the M.U.T.O.s.


  • Both unmade American Godzilla films as well as the 2014 American Godzilla film feature a sequence where Godzilla destroys the Golden Gate Bridge.
  • There is also a scene in Pacific Rim where Trespasser destroys the Golden Gate Bridge.
  • The scene from the 1994 American Godzilla film script where Godzilla collapses on the Golden Gate Bridge was loosely adapted for the final 1998 American Godzilla film. In that film, Godzilla is tangled in the cables of the Brooklyn Bridge instead and killed by three F-18 Hornets.
