After 4 weekends in the theater Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters (2019) has finally crossed the $100 million mark at the domestic box office! Actual returns have totaled closer to $102.3 million domestically, paired with a foreign box office take of $247.6 million, the Godzilla sequel has earned just shy of $350 million so far.

To compare, by the time Kong: Skull Island had left theaters, it managed to rake in $168 million domestically, with a total gross (including foreign markets) $566.6 million at the box office back in 2017. Gareth Edwards' 2014 Godzilla fared even better with a domestic pull of $200.6 million and a total take of $529 million.

On a presumed production budget of $170 million, King of the Monsters (2019) did cost about $10 million more than Gareth's film, but it has made more than double its production budget back at the box office. As we reported previously as well, Legendary are not worried about Godzilla 2's box office performance.

Yeah. I'm real thrilled it took 24 days to do what the 2014 film did in 3...

Although disappointing, I am not letting numbers get me down. This film had a terrible release schedule and was totally ruined by an ad campaign that spoiled the entire movie. It was a debacle by WB and hopefully all parties involved learned from their mistakes.

It could have done X-Men numbers..

Endgame seemed to have a big impact on all other films that came after it.

I don't think there was any truly good release date that wouldn't have resulted in a loss compared to the previous 2 films.

Should we tell that to Aladdin (currently at $812.2M world wide) and Toy Story 4?

I'd be inclined to peg Aladdin for stealing a lot of KoTM's thunder, actually. Not that it's all its fault, but opening the week after a Live-action Disney remake can't be the ideal window.


TitanosaurusMember729 XPJun-24-2019 11:47 AM

And that's DISNEY. I'd hardly fault the movie for losing out to Disney or the MCU, or any movie for that matter.

Movies in May and now June that weren't under the House of the Mouse seemed to start off okay but started falling off. Shazam, Detective Pikachu, etc., all did okay at first but then petered off.

Exactly. As someone who isn't particularly inclined to spend money going to see every movie that looks neat in theaters, you start to pare it down to just the ones you want to see most. Disney set up a lot of big-deal movies for this year and put them out rapid-fire, which I think might have had something to do with how poorly a lot of other good movies did in the long run.


BaragonMember125 XPJun-24-2019 10:34 PM

@Realist, I agree with your post completely.

Just look at how Disney released all their big movies since Captain Marvel. Perfectly timed and placed to crush the competition. The tentpole releases like Aladdin and Toy Story are the movies that people plan to see. Most of the stuff in the middle gets skipped as a "I'll catch it on blu ray" title.

It should be noted that films typically have to make 3x their production budget to be successful. This film will lose money, so Legendary absolutely is worried about it’s box office performance. It wouldn’t be delaying GvK if it was has happy with it.


TitanosaurusMember729 XPJun-26-2019 6:04 PM

Godzilla vs. Kong isn't delayed; it's still coming in March.

Also, 3 times seems a bit too large considering that Pacific Rim had an approximate $190 million production budget and was still viable after a $411 million total box office take.

Now Godzilla: King of the Monsters has now hit about $367 million worldwide and is getting an extended theatre run in China. I get that it's not good, but it's not too bad right now; it could definitely have been worse, such as with Pacific Rim: Uprising's box office take.

Mothra LarvaeMember25 XPJun-26-2019 7:13 PM

Pacific Rim did lose money overall but was successful in countries like China. The sequel wasn't greenlit because the first was profitable, it was because of the studio seeing potential for a bigger return at the sequel's box office, especially if they marketed the film more heavily in China.

As far as Godzilla vs. Kong goes, Toby Emmerich heavily implied that the studio was looking to delay the film, possibly for reshoots. I happen to think it's likely they will delay it. The chairman of a studio doesn't say things like that lightly.    


TitanosaurusMember729 XPJun-27-2019 4:07 AM

Well, it's already been confirmed that the film will still release domestically on March 13, 2020. The international market will be getting it earlier on March 11, 2020. Heck, early footage has already been shown off in Europe.

Besides which, the March release date is already one of the better ones to stick with considering all the competition coming later.

Sure, it's gotta deal with Onward 1 week earlier and Mulan 2 weeks later, but it's got an entire 2 week period as the only film of the action genre releasing during that time along with releasing on the Spring Break period. If the film were to be delayed, it'd have to be delayed to June or July in order to avoid releasing around gigantic competition like the current film did.

Mothra LarvaeMember89 XPJun-27-2019 4:45 AM

March is the perfect time for GvK and I think WB knows that. They have backpedaled on the delay innuendo and it seems to be progressing as planned. Time will tell
