Source: Friday Report: 'Godzilla' Roars, Scores Biggest Opening Day of 2014
Godzilla is now not only the King of Monsters, but Ruler of the Box Office. The Legendary Pictures film is reportly dominating the weekend with a total of $93 million (as per Box Office Mojo), maybe possibly more, for the weekend. This comes just after numbers came in for Friday's whopping $38.4 million day. Further $6 Million from that day came from IMAX screenings.
To compare, the previous box office giant of the month, Amazing Spider-Man 2, webbed itself $4.5 million on Friday, while making just $16 million for the entire weekend. For its opening weekend, the movie made $91.6 million.
Unfortunately, it looks like Godzilla couldn't defeat the record set by Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which made $96 million at the box office in its opening weekend. However, Godzilla's $38.4 million opening day beat Cap's $36.9 million record to become the highest grossing opening day of the year so far!
Now all bow before your current box office King:
