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).
