“Godzilla” Conquers Box Office, “Million Dollar Arm” Makes a Few

Besting early estimates, the newest “Godzilla” film earned a healthy $38.5 million in its box office debut Friday.

Stronger than the opening night marks posted by recent blockbusters “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” the total gave “Godzilla” a dominant victory Friday.

“Neighbors,” which claimed first last week, settled for second with $8.4 million. The aforementioned “Spider-Man” was good for third on the strength of $4.5 million.

Claiming fourth place was “Million Dollar Arm,” which garnered $3.5 million from moviegoers on Friday. “The Other Woman” landed in fifth with $2.1 million.
