Toho has made movie guides for every Godzilla film and a few non-Godzilla kaiju films from 1954 to 2017. They were usually released the same day a Godzilla film opened in Japanese theaters, although some of the"Toho Championship Festival" guides were guides of films that were released years before. These were only released in Japan. The back of every guide usually featured an advertisement, and each guide usually had between four and eight pages.
