Godzilla Vs. Kong

Godzilla Vs Kong

Bringing together 2 of the biggest monsters in the cinema world has re-ignited the box office in a way where others have failed and the high action special effects movie takes $48.5 Million since its opening over 5 days.

The weekend Friday to Sunday gross is $32.2 Million which is still higher than anything in recent times.

The movie is now the third biggest movie since the pandemic started needing to just beat The Croods: A New Age and Tenet which it will do, but more importantly it getting the public back in movie theatres, and with most cinemas still only at 25% capacity this is even more impressive.

And to top things off the movie has even beaten the opening gross of the 2019 movie Godzilla: King of the Monsters which managed nearly $48 Million with no pandemic closures and limitations!

Finally the movie took 80% of the total of this weeks top 15 movie.

The Unholy

The Unholy

After all the news about Godzilla Vs. Kong its easy to forget that there was also a new movie at number 2, Evan Spiliotopoulos directs Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the movie which takes a very respectable $3.2 Million over the weekend.

The movie got fairly bad reviews but the public seem to like it and its good to see a second new movie hitting the box office in the current box office climate.

Nobody

Falling from number 1 to number 3 this weekend the Bob Odenkirk starring movie takes £3.07 on its second weekend of release, a 55% drop, giving the movie a total of $11.87 Million.

Raya and the Last Dragon

Disneys latest animated feature is this week at number 4, falling from number 2, with $1.4 Million, a 44% drop from last weekend.

The movie has now taken $39.5 Million after 5 weeks in cinemas, and with it also Disney+ prime that will have taken some of the box office taking from the movie.

Tom and Jerry

The cat and mouse duo fall to 5 this weekend with $1.4 Million, 44% down, giving it a $39.5 Million over 6 weeks.

The movie is currently the top grossing movie in America for 2021, it will lose out that place by next weekend by Godzilla Vs. kong.
