Godzilla smashes competition at U.S. box office

6/17/2014

Godzilla has stomped its way to the top of the North American box office chart with a monstrous $93.2 million (£58.25 million) haul in its opening weekend (16-18May14). The monster movie remake, starring Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, has destroyed the competition to score the second-largest debut of the year (14) so far, just behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which opened with $95 million (£59.38 million) in April (14). Godzilla's box office figures outside North America were just as impressive, earning $103 million (£64.38 million) elsewhere for a total global take of $196.2 million (£122.63 million). Meanwhile, Seth Rogen and Zac Efron's raunchy comedy Neighbors was a distant second in the North American chart with $26 million (£16.25 million), while The Amazing Spider-Man 2 came third with $17 million (£10.63 million). Jon Hamm's new baseball drama Million Dollar Arm entered at number four and Cameron Diaz's The Other Woman rounded out the top five at five.
