    Rentrak Announces Worldwide Box Office Results for Weekend of June 15, 2014 Source: Rentrak Corporation Official Site:

    Five weeks into its theatrical run, Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ GODZILLA dropped to seventh place at the domestic box office as the newly released sequels 22 JUMP STREET and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 took the top two spots. But the King of the Monsters once again proved his might by jumping back to the top of the international box office with a massive opening weekend in China. As the second largest theatrical market after North America, China was viewed as key to GODZILLA`s box office success. Warner Bros. gave the film a tremendous push there, releasing it on 9,000 screens across the country. Opening on Friday the 13th, GODZILLA exceeded expectations with a one-day haul of $10.9 million... the highest amount for any Chinese debut in 2014, and Warner Bros` top opening ever in that nation. GODZILLA earned an additional $14.8 million on Saturday, again breaking records in China for Warner Bros. The latest estimates give the movie`s total weekend take in China at $36 million, including $4.5 million from IMAX screens (matching last year`s record-breaking IMAX opening for THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG). Thanks to China, GODZILLA roared past $439 million worldwide. The film has now been released in sixty-three territories, with only Japan remaining. Toho will open GODZILLA there on July 25th.
