Fathom Events and RiffTrax.comÂ® are excited to bring Toho's Mothra to the big screen for a LIVE riff on Thursday, August 18 followed by a special re-broadcast on Tuesday, August 23. The guys who make movies funny, Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett, bring their comedy chops back to the big screen when they take on one of most beloved (and bizarre!) of the Japanese monster classics, 1961âs Mothra. Mothra tells the story of a group of explorers who travel to a remote island, kidnap two tiny women, thereby inciting the wrath of a giant larvae which then swims the ocean, cocoons itself in downtown Tokyo, emerges as the titular Mothra and destroys everything in its path. Yes, it's a tale as old as time, but Mothra does it best! Just as Gamera became one of MST3K's most beloved series, Mothra promises to be an instant RiffTrax classic!
