He May have turned 60 this year, but Godzilla tramples like never before!

Godzilla stomped the box office and the record books this weekend, wreaking havoc to the tune of $93.2 million, according to studio estimates from Rentrak.

The debut was “expectation-busting,” says Rentrak’s Paul Dergarabedian. The opening smashed analysts’ projections of $70 million and marked the largest opening of all time for a monster movie. The previous champ, 1997’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park, bowed to $72 million, according to Box Office Mojo.

The only other major newcomer, baseball drama Million Dollar Arm, didn’t have its best stuff, taking fourth place with $10.5 million. Analysts expected about $14 million for the Jon Hamm movie.
