Sony has announced a street date postponement for 'Godzilla,' pushing back its planned March Blu-ray debut to tweak the disc's bonus features.

As we've previously reported, Sony first announced back in October that it was bringing the 1998 Roland Emmerich-remake of Godzilla' to Blu-ray on March 28, 2008 (day-and-date with a new special edition DVD re-issue).

Now, on the heels of a special sneak peek of 'Godzilla's bonus features that the studio held this past January at CES, Sony has removed both the Blu-ray and DVD versions from its upcoming release schedule. Although no new date has been announced, Sony says it's currently at work crafting the disc's supplements, and is planning a re-announce of the title due in the coming months.

Extras originally revealed for the Blu-ray included "Behind the Scenes of Godzilla with Charles Caiman" featurette, an "All Time Best Of Godzilla Fight Scenes" montage and the "Heroes" music video by The Wallflowers. We'll keep you posted as soon as official word comes in on further extras and a new street date.

In the meantime, we've moved 'Godzilla (1998)' to the "Release Dates Postponed" section of our Blu-ray Release Schedule.

We've also set up a dedicated thread for discussion of the flick in our Forums area -- click the following link to discuss the 'Godzilla (1998)' Blu-ray release.
