Godzilla Box Office Smash Attack

Further establishing that box office predictions are nothing more than a guessing game, Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, which was predicted to make between $50 and $60 million this weekend, crushed the competition at the domestic box office with a whopping $93 million. The movie earned $193 million at the global box office, more than its $160 million budget.
