Finally! Godzilla has made it to Japan. (Kinda funny if you think about it.) Anyway, Godzilla had a great weekend at the box office. Per variety, he was released in four different versions (2D sub-titled and dubbed, 3D subbed and dubbed) on 773 screens on Friday by local exhibition/distribution powerhouse Toho, the picture topped rankings at both online ticket sales sites and Tokyo area multiplexes.
