‘Godzilla Vs. Kong’ Stomping To $69M By Sunday; Easily Top-Grossing Pic To Date At Domestic B.O. During Pandemic

Warner Bros. pandemic hit Godzilla vs. Kong grossed $3.88M on Friday, which will yield an estimated $12.9M second weekend at 3,084 theaters (+20), -60%, on its way to $69M by the end of tomorrow. In the Legendary title’s first week, the monster movie has grossed $60M, making it the top grossing pic stateside during the pandemic (since mid-March 2020), and giving Warner Bros. four out of the five top grossing titles over the last year which include the studio’s Tenet ($58.5M) in second place, Universal/Dreamworks Animation’s Croods: New Age ($56.5M) in third, Warner’s Wonder Woman 1984 with $46.2M, and the studio’s Tom & Jerry with $40.3M.

Even though GvK fell 67% in its second Friday off its $11.6M Good Friday, that is standard for any movie, even in normal marketplace standards. Such Good Friday opening hits such as Uni’s 2015 Furious 7 and 2017 Fate of the Furious fell respectively -72% and -76% in their second Fridays. Warner’s 2016 DC movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was -82% in its second Friday off Good Friday. A Saturday surge of at least +45% over Friday is possible for GvK.
