While it received less-than-kind reviews, the film made a decent amount of money in the USA, it made over twice the amount of money overseas. After this, he directed ''Film/{{Stargate}}'', which later kicked off its own TV Series and franchise.

* OldShame: Of a sort. Emmerich regretted that [[ChristmasRushed he rushed Godzilla for a Memorial Day release]]. He still defends the film, though.
* PlayingAgainstType: While known mainly for his disaster films, Emmerich has also done thrillers as well, such as ''Anonymous'', a pseudo-historical mystery-thriller about William Shakespeare.
** He also plans on making a film about the Stonewall riots. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer Seriously]].

* ContrivedCoincidence: A frequent theme in his work, particularly in ''2012'', ''Independence Day'' and ''The Day After Tomorrow''. In short, it's best not to think to hard about how his heroes make their way towards survival; just be happy that they do.

Then, he worked on the 1998 {{Remake}} of ''Film/{{Godzilla|1998}}'', or Godzilla: InNameOnly (GINO) as some fans called it. It used clever ViralMarketing, describing the size of the monster without giving it away. When the actual film came out, it wasn't received well. RogerEbert and Gene Siskel, who criticized his previous movies, pointed out his TakeThat in the film, and was displeased to find that he didn't get eaten or stepped on by the giant lizard. [[NeverLiveItDown Ebert still held a grudge to his death over this]]. [[PopularityPolynomial Over time]], though, Godzilla fans have considered the movie to be better than less-enjoyable installments in the series.
