Oh My Godzilla! Lizard Leaps to Near $100 Million Weekend

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).

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
