Box Office Pro is the first website to give a long range prediction of Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Its forecast for the movie includes a range of $40-60 million for the opening weekend. They predict the movie will open with $46 million and finish with a domestic total of $110 million.

If those numbers seem a little low, I tend to agree. I predict these forecasts will go up as we get closer to the release date and tickets finally go on sale.

I find it difficult to believe the industry can accurately calculate these numbers without ticket pre-sales, but I suppose they've found a model to predict this somewhere. In any case, Box Office Pro's long range forecasts haven't been more (or less) off than $10 million this year. So they have some modicum of viability.

For comparison Godzilla '14 opened with $93.1 million for the weekend and finished with a domestic total of $200.6 million. ($529 million world wide total.)

Kong: Skull Island opened with $61 million for the weekend and finished with a domestic total of $168 million. ($566.6 million world wide total.)

I have a hard time believing Godzilla: King of the Monsters will open with less than Skull Island, but the fact is May is a very aggressive month for movies. We'll see how things change in the coming weeks.

I see a lot of people wanting to see this movie, people that don't usually watch monster movies. This tells me that quite a lot of people will go just to check it out even if they haven't seen G14.

The movie might go in to the red for the studio if those numbers are accurate, given the large budget estimates. Yeah, there are the international markets which the studio would pin their hopes on. But if it fails in the home market, then it would have already stumbled out of the starting gate, something the studio does not want to see of course.

I agree with Patzilla, I think there is significant hype generated for this movie and the demand to see it is getting stronger, so hopefully the box office estimate will go upwards. At least that is what I hope.

I think that Godzilla king of the monsters will make anywhere from 500 million-700 million

Maybe the success of Aquaman could sway things. That one was highly successful for being part of the DCEU.

Maybe it's indicative of the market being ready to partake in WB's films so long as they showcase colour and style.

It's a concerning figure, especially considering the future of the Monsterverse clearly rests on the shoulders of this and GvK.

Hopefully it's off, but we'll see...

It's going to so better. I need to rely on more than one source to have a guess at the box office.

Fair point actually. I'm sniffing around for more sources.

Godzilla king of the monster's budget happens to be 200 million dollars. It's marketing budget is 100-150 million. so, at minimum, Godzilla king of the monsters needs to make at least 350-400 million to make a profit.
