‘Godzilla Vs Kong’, the monster saga has proven to be a force to reckon with on the big screen and at the box office! The latest instalment in the Monster Universe franchise, debuted in the country on 24th March, instantly pulling in cinema lovers by the numbers, despite the looming threat of the second wave of the covid-19 pandemic.
Although the film saw a drop in collections on Tuesday, post the Holi holiday, it still managed to earn a decent collection of Rs 2.50-2.75 crore nett. This takes it seven day total to around 35 crore nett, according to a report on boxofficeindia.com.
With no big Bollywood movie lining up for its release with many others bowing out of theatres, the film is looking at a Rs 40 crore nett collection on its second weekend. Considering the restrictions and night curfew in place to contain the spread of the virus, these numbers are said to be very good.
The Warner Bros. distributed film surpassed box office expectations and achieved “monstrous” regional revenues in Southeast Asia, India and Korea. The film earned USD 25.2m on its opening weekend, with USD 4.9m coming in just from the Indian markets. This has made it one of the biggest opening for a Covid-era Hollywood release in the country.
In China, where the film opened on 26th March and earned USD 70.3m from 42,000 screens, with a 82% share of the box office. In the US, ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ opens today in cinemas and on an OTT platform.
‘Godzilla vs Kong’ is directed by Adam Wingard. It stars Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown and Rebecca Hall.
The film sees mythic adversaries meet in a spectacular battle for the ages, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe. The initial confrontation between the two Titans – instigated by unseen forces – is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth.
