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

    There's an actual Godzilla Park in the Ginza District of Tokyo; but like the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen, the statue is very small. However the Godzilla tour of buildings in Tokyo that Godzilla destroyed is really cool; particularly Tokyo-eki (the main train station across from the Imperial Palace grounds).
