There’s no escape. Godzilla is back, and more popular than ever. Despite being a Japanese creation, the beloved, city-destroying kaiju has really permeated American culture. The “Godzilla” reboot starring Bryan Cranston opened this week and is doing some damage to its competition.

Just remember, if you do get injured in a giant monster attack, you may be entitled to money.
