“Godzilla vs. Kong” Box-Office Is Strong

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

It seems the desire to return to cinemas in the U.S. is very real.

Warners launched “Godzilla vs. Kong” both in cinemas and on HBO Max on Wednesday and pulled in a record opening day during the pandemic.

The clash of the MonsterVerse titans snagged $9.6 million at the domestic box office from 2,409 theaters – a very solid $3,980 per-screen average, especially considering many are at 50% capacity or less.

Since mid-March last year, no other film has done this type of business (next nearest was “Wonder Woman 1984” with $7.5 million) and it indicates the film could potentially exceed the $20-30 million estimates that have been suggested for the five-day Wednesday-Sunday Easter Holiday weekend run

The film also landed an A Cinemascore, beating the B+ the three previous MonsterVerse films scored.
