Oh My Godzilla! Lizard Leaps to Near $100 Million Weekend

Oh My Godzilla! Lizard Leaps to Near $100 Million Weekend

Apparently it IS easy being green.  Warners’ “Godzilla” obliterates the Friday box office with a $39 million take which should bring the three day close to $100 million.  That would make it the highest grossing movie of the year so far (we’ll see how long that lasts with “X-Men: Days of Future Past” opening Friday) but what a terrific start.  Imax’s percentage of the last night’s take was huge as it totaled $6.7 million.  Here’s how it looks this morning.  We’ll have an update tomorrow morning,

1.   GODZILLA–Warners Brothers–$96 million

2.   NEIGHBORS—Universal—$25 million

3.   AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2—Sony—$14.5 million

4.   MILLION DOLLAR ARM—BV—$10.2 million

5.   THE OTHER WOMAN—Fox—$6.7 million

6.   HEAVEN IS FOR REAL–Sony/TS—$4.6 million

7.   RIO 2—Fox—$3.8 million

8.   CAPTAIN AMERICA: WINTER SOLDIER—BV—$3.7 million

9.   MOMS NIGHT OUT—Sony/TS—$2.4 million

10. LEGENDS OF OZ—Clarius—$2.1 million
