The early tracking for Gareth Edwards' Godzilla is reported as being positive as it's estimated by movie industry insiders to possibly have a $60-70 million opening.

THR reports that the studios is hoping this Godzilla film is the one that finally becomes a success and launches a new Hollywood franchise. Legendary Entertainment footed a majority of the bill (75%) for Godzilla, which is reported to have a $160 million budget; WB helped out with the rest.

It's mentioned that Godzilla is tracking well for the male audience, and interest among females is said to be strong as well. It's also said Godzilla is thought to be big for the overseas audience.

Previously, Gareth Edwards mentioned in passing that a Godzilla sequel similar to Destroy All Monsters would be his wish.

The month of May will be interesting for the movie industry as Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens May 2nd, Godzilla on May 16th, X-Men: Days Of Future Past on May 23rd and Maleficent on May 30th.

Gareth Edwards directs “Godzilla,” which stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson (“Kick-Ass”), Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai,” “Inception”), Elizabeth Olsen (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”), Oscar® winner Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient,” “Cosmopolis”), and Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”), with Oscar® nominee David Strathairn (“Good Night, and Good Luck.,” “The Bourne Legacy”) and Bryan Cranston (“Argo,” TV’s “Breaking Bad”).
