Godzilla Vs. Kong Tops US Box Office For Third Weekend
With little competition elsewhere in the chart, the monster showdown stayed at No.1.
Godzilla vs. Kong has stayed top of the US box office for the third week running. The big budget monster showdown added another $7.7 million to its domestic total, bringing it to $80.5 million. Worldwide, it has now made $390.2 million, overtaking Tenet to become the most successful movie of the past 12 months.
Of course, the film didn't exactly have much competition in terms of new releases. The Top 5 remained much the same as last week, with the action comedy Nobody, horror movie The Unholy, and Disney's Raya the Last Dragon occupying the next three spaces. The only change was Tom and Jerry and the sci-fi drama Voyagers exchanging places at No. 5 and No. 6, respectively.
The only new entry in the chart was In the Earth at No. 7. The low budget British horror movie is directed by Kill List's Ben Wheatley, and it made $506,000 from 547 screens. The rest of the Top 10 consisted of the thriller The Courier, the family movie The Girl Who Believes in Miracles, and animated sequel The Croods: A New Age.
Godzilla vs. Kong will finally face some competition next weekend, when the video game movie Mortal Kombat hits theaters. Although, of course, this is also a Warner Bros. release, and like Godzilla vs Kong, will be available on HBO Max as well as in theaters.
