Godzilla Vs. Kong Stays Top Of US Box Office Chart
The monster showdown is the biggest movie to hit US theaters in the past year.
Godzilla vs. Kong has remained top of the US box office chart. In its second weekend on release, the big budget monster movie added a further $13.4 million to its domestic gross.
While this was a dip from its opening weekend's $48 million gross, it's still an impressive figure given the movie is also available to stream on HBO Max. With a US total of $69.5 million to date, it's the most successful US theatrical release of the pandemic era.
Godzilla vs. Kong has also continued to earn big money internationally. The movie has made $357.8 million worldwide so far, and it is very close to overtaking Christoper Nolan's Tenet as the most successful movie of the past 12 months. Tenet made $363.1 million worldwide, but this was over several months of release, whereas Godzilla vs. Kong only opened in the first Asian markets on March 24.
Elsewhere in the US box office chart, the action comedy Nobody is in the second place, making $2.65 million in its third weekend and bringing its US total to $15.6 million. The Sam Raimi-produced horror movie The Unholy is at No.3, while Disney's Raya and the Last Dragon and the sci-fi movie Voyagers are at No.4 and No.5 respectively.
