Box Office Mojo feature a list of the highest grossing monster or "creature" movies and Legendary's Godzilla 2014 was fourth on the list for domestic gross, the films ahead of Godzilla were Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, and King Kong ('05).
Godzilla had by far the best opening but may have had a shorter run since the movie box office has changed in recent years. Godzilla was $30 million and $20 million behind the second and third place films so it wasn't far off from them.
The comparison is probably slightly off also due to differences in movie prices and again different box office runs. Sony's Godzilla placed 7th and Pacific Rim 9th.
