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:
