With the most recent release of in-costume cast photos which show the cast together for the first time, now more than ever the live-action Naruto stage production appears to have dotted their i’s and crossed all their t’s to provide a summer of kick-ass performances.
In 2014, Hollywood released its second attempt at the classic Japanese kaiju (monster) Godzilla. The movie was both an artistic and commercial success.
