A Monster Opening

Victor Hugo once said, “Adversity makes men, and prosperity makes monsters.”
“Godzilla,” that infamous, fire-breathing ferocious monster, made his grand return to movie town, where he, naturally, prospered at the top of the domestic box office, bullying his way past the pack and breaking 2014 opening-day records with $93.2 million. Fearful of the fire-breather but still in party mode, his “Neighbors” happily took the festivities two doors down to the #2 place with $26 million. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” was last seen having an awesome time at the #3 region with $16.8 million. On an inspirational note, the “Million Dollar Arm” reached $10.5 million at the #4 area. Unimpressed by uplifting, true stories, especially the male-related kind, “The Other Woman” took her baggage to the #5 spot with $6.3 million.

This weekend, man haters traded quips of sorts with monsters, Disney darlings reached for the stars, the neighborhood continued to celebrate while our friendly neighborhood Spiderman sustained his web-slinging talents from rooftop to rooftop. An amazing time was clearly had by all!
What movie had you celebrating this weekend?
