Gareth Edwards' Godzilla remake pulled in US$38.5 million on Friday, the largest opening day earnings in the year so far. The movie debuted in 3,950 theaters and earned more than Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2's opening day figures.
Box Office Mojo is estimating a weekend gross of US$93,205,000 in the U.S. and an additional US$103 million worldwide for a total weekend gross of US$196,205,000. The film has an estimated production budget of US$160 million.
The crew began shooting in Canada early last year. The film's cast lineup includes Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn, Bryan Cranston, Richard T. Jones, Juliette Binoche, and Sally Hawkins.
