“Godzilla vs. Kong” Box-Office Is King

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

Adam Wingard’s “Godzilla vs. Kong” pulled in a further $11.6 million at the domestic box-office on Friday for a three-day haul so far $27.9 million.

As a result, the Warner Bros. Pictures tentpole feature is tracking to generate more than $42 million in ticket sales domestically with some suggesting as high as $48-50 million over the five-day period.

That would easily be the biggest opening weekend of the coronavirus era. Even the Friday-Sunday period alone, which is estimated to be $32 million, would be double that of the three-day opening weekend of “Wonder Woman 1984” at $16.7 million.

Overseas, the monster film has brought in $123 million so far. This all comes as the film is currently available to HBO Max subscribers for no extra fee and shows that people are still happy to go to their local cinema even if they can watch the same film at home.
