Godzilla vs. Kong Opens with $ 16.3 Million Two-Day Transportation!
There’s nothing like watching the MonsterVerse Titans crouch on the largest screens possible. Adam Wingards Godzilla versus Kong grossed $ 6.7 million yesterday and hit the box office as we head into a vacation weekend. The Warner Bros. and Legendary film brings its two-day grand total to $ 16.3 million in 2,409 locations. That number will only increase as more theaters open this weekend. Los Angeles and Houston will mark other major movie theater openings for chains like Regal, which will follow AMC, according to the deadline.
Godzilla versus Kong shows that audiences are ready to return to theaters between their availability on IMAX, Prime, Dolby, 3D and Regals 4DX. The availability to see the movie on HBO Max is dwarfed when compared to Kong and Godzilla battling on the largest possible screen. IMAX screens have been reported to sell out quickly across Los Angeles.
The five-day estimate for the release is in the range of $ 30 million to $ 40 million, breaking only the previous pandemic record that Warner Bros. also set. Wonder Woman 1894 opened Christmas Day on limited screens, bringing the studio $ 7.5 million. The monster footprint on the theaters shows that there is still money to be made when more theaters are open around the world.
