'Godzilla' largest opener of the year with $93M

LOS ANGELES (AP) - "Godzilla" has debuted as the largest opener of the year with $93.2 million.

The Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures' sci-fi monster reboot, starring Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen, trumped last weekend's No. 1 hit, Universal Pictures "Neighbors," which was pushed down to No. 2 in its second weekend.

The raunchy Seth Rogen and Zac Efron-led comedy earned $26 million, bringing its domestic total to a solid $91.5 million. Worldwide the film has grossed $146.3 million.

Rounding out the top three is "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" with $16.8 million. So far it's earned a total of $172 million domestically.

Also opening this weekend, Disney's feel-good sports drama "Million Dollar Arm," starring Jon Hamm, gained $11 million.
