Godzilla Box Office: Godzilla Tops Box Office with $93.2M

Godzilla is a remake of the 1950s classic monster movie. It is the #1 fare at box office and according to predictions regarding its success it will gross $93.2 million. 

Godzilla features Bryan Cranston who appeared in the drug baron series Breaking Bad. There were other forecasts which calculated the gross amount that would accrue from the movie ticket sales as reaching $68 million. 

Both in the United States and Canada, the movie was at the pinnacle. Even the hit Neighbors featured at the #2 spot. This movie is the second big venture by the production house, the first being Pacific Rim. It took $160 million to merely make this movie. It was truly a giant inaugural for a giant movie. 

Furthermore, it is a movie that is being embraced abroad as well as on its home turf. Over two thirds of the budget was paid by Legendary (the production house) while the rest was paid by Warner Brothers. 

The US and Canadian markets will return $240 million in the form of revenues from the sale of tickets. And more than $14 million will be going into the coffers from the pockets of the home audience. 

Contrast this with Pacific Rim and a wholly different story emerges. About $190 million was the cost of production in case of the latter. As for the production of profits, in the case of Pacific Rim, $101.8 million was the amount raised. 

Worldwide, the sales amounted to $411 million which says a lot in itself. The movie shows mutant reptiles that come out of the sea and terrorize mankind. They have to be gotten rid of at all costs. 

Godzilla movie is especially a crowd favorite in the United States. The original Godzilla series on television was titled “Gojira”. The huge radioactive creature portrayed in it is scary indeed.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
