‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ is a Pandemic Box Office Powerhouse With $285 Million Worldwide Thus Far!

Box office reporting has made its official return with the release of Adam Wingard’s Godzilla vs. Kong, which is out in international theaters as well as theaters here in the U.S. Of course, the mashup fight film is also streaming on HBO Max, but that hasn’t stopped Godzilla vs. Kong from having a killer (and far better than expected) opening weekend in theaters.

Since its release in U.S. theaters last Wednesday, Godzilla vs. Kong has pulled in $48.5 million at the domestic box office across 3,064 theaters, the biggest opening of the pandemic.

Godzilla vs. Kong had been projected to make roughly $20-30 million across its five day domestic opening weekend, with those projections essentially doubled by the actual number.

Worldwide, Godzilla vs. Kong has made $285,400,000 in theaters, with the bulk of that money being made internationally. For the sake of comparison, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the previous film in WB & Legendary’s “MonsterVerse,” ended with a worldwide total of $386 million, a number Godzilla vs. Kong is already fast approaching in a matter of weeks.

Of course, it must also be noted that Godzilla vs. Kong has opened, quite unlike King of the Monsters, *during a pandemic* and with the film already available at home in the States on top of that, which makes the film’s box office dominance even more impressive. Granted, Godzilla vs. Kong is a big time event movie that was likely always going to get asses in seats no matter the situation, but it’s nevertheless the start of a “return to normalcy” that we’ve all been craving. And it’s a huge win for WB, who took a big gamble with their rollout plan. Turns out, the people wanted new movies and they wanted the option to either watch them at home or in their local theater. And the only studio bringing that combo to the table right now is WB.

Even still, Godzilla vs. Kong has a long way to go before it’s traditionally profitable, but the good news for WB is that the film is also smashing records for the HBO Max streaming service. Does this mean the “MonsterVerse” will continue, after all? Here’s hoping…

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
