The Business of Film: Godzilla - King of the Monsters
James Cameron-Wilson looks at the most recent UK box office chart, with the live-action remake of Aladdin still at #1. Godzilla: King of the Monsters opens at #2 while, despite an absence of official numbers, James determines that high-school comedy Booksmart should feature at #7.
