New Movies This Week: ‘Godzilla,’ ‘Million Dollar Arm’
This weekend, get ready for the return of one of cinema’s greatest monsters. There’s also an inspiring story of a few huge underdogs who get a chance to play Major League Baseball. The summer movie season is officially upon us.
The biggest, baddest monster of them all makes his return to the silver screen, where he gets to stomp on lots of buildings, cause massive explosions and fight other terrifying monsters. Fun! (See more about ‘Godzilla’ here.)
