Looks like there are indeed a lot more sheeps out there, RT just control the minds of general moviegoers. Disappointing...but not sadly not surprising.


MemberBaragonJun-01-2019 5:03 PM

 But all is not lost for the studio, the international markets are doing well. China and Japan are doing great especially.

Seen it twice... loved it long time.


AdminSpaceGodzillaJun-01-2019 5:28 PM

Planning my second viewing tomorrow and a third next week. Honestly can't get enough of it.


MemberBaragonJun-01-2019 6:41 PM

Chris: Me too. Going to my second viewing soon.


MemberBaragonJun-01-2019 6:53 PM

I'd like to get out to see it again also. Shame it's not doing well.



MemberMothra LarvaeJun-01-2019 7:27 PM

I don't understand why the RT score is so low. I convinced my wife to see it with me (my 2nd time). She fell asleep during the 2014 movie and Kong, but she loved this one. I'm hoping that word of mouth will give it a boost because I think most (regular) people just looking for a fun time end up liking it. Movie goer approval is somewhere around 85% or higher whereas, I think, the 2014 movie was around 65% or something. Critics are so out of touch with this one, and I've read some reviews that make me question whether they ever actually saw it! I just don't get it ....

Say goodbye to the monsterverse kids!

Say goodbye to the monsterverse kids!

1.A lot us aren't kids.

2. A little premature to announce the failure of the monsterverse just yet.

Maybe, but now it hinges on Godzilla vs. Kong. With the confidence WB had in this movie and all the marketing pumped in to it, $49 million for the weekend is quite soft. The international debut is looking pretty low as well.

The movie might be lucky to break even.


MemberBaragonJun-02-2019 9:07 AM

G. H. (Gman): Well, it's not confirm the take will be under 50 million...yet. I'm not disputing the soft opening, but international take is very low? Uh? $130 million may not be out of this world but it is nothing to sniff at. 

If you are right though, I guess you can blame RT and the reality that most moviegoer are sheeps (actually..no, it's usually due to more complicated issues than just one website, but I am digressing).

Maybe the wait between Godzilla 2014 and KOTM at 5 years was just too long and the appeal among the general audiencehas died down. Maybe WB was wrong to picked this summer period to open with so much competition. Maybe Godzilla is just a more niche product than WB want to admit.

AdminGodzillaJun-02-2019 9:24 AM

The problem is that $130M take was much higher on Friday. We were initially projected for a $230M worldwide opening, now we're at $180M? Where did that $50M go?

Even China, which we tend to rely on for these kinds of movies opened lower than expected. The initial numbers were $70M+. It's looking more like $67M now.

There's a chance the $49M domestic estimate is low, but it won't be much higher than $50M--In fact there's even a chance the actuals are lower, since that's been known to happen.

Hopefully it has decent legs.


MemberBaragonJun-02-2019 9:40 AM

G. H. (Gman): Or maybe the problem is with the projection? I stand by my view 130 million may not be fantastic, but neither is it so dreadful. Anyhow, what really matters is what the studio thinks of the box office. It's funny, sometimes you almost sound like you are so sure this movie will fail. But I'll agree we'll have to see if it has legs.

G. H. (Gman)

AdminGodzillaJun-02-2019 9:59 AM

I'm not entirely sure it will fail, but I do think it has a massive uphill battle. On a $200M budget, the breakeven point is $400M worldwide. It won't be safely out of the woods unless it makes $500M+.


MemberBaragonJun-02-2019 10:26 AM

G. H. (Gman): We'll find out eventually. The true cost only the studio knows and despite what pundits say, ultimately it is the studio who decides whether a film fails or succeed in terms of box office. We can only make educated guesses.


MemberBaragonJun-02-2019 3:54 PM

Hmmm. This does not look amazing. 180 mil is descent, but it is still not even close to being a real success. These numbers may be a little low as they are just an estimate, Avengers endgame was set at 346 mil opening estimate but actually had a 357 mil opening weekend in the U.S. so maybe this is the same with KOTM? we can only hope, otherwise this movie has to have some strong legs to carry it on since the future of the monsterverse is hanging on how well KOTM and GvK do. luckily this movie has no real competition for a bit, aside from maybe Dark pheonix, which has low box office tracking and looks bad. a lot of kids are also out of school now, giving the cinemas bigger audiences on the weekdays as well.


Hopefully these films are a success


MemberBaragonJun-02-2019 7:44 PM

The monsterverse is finished.


MemberMothra LarvaeJun-07-2019 4:32 AM

i will give all my money to this movie


MemberBaragonJun-07-2019 5:39 AM

It's looking better this weekend. The two films which would give it major competition have reviews worse than KOTM, so people are more likely to see it instead of the trash that is coming out.

MemberMothra LarvaeJun-17-2019 7:29 AM

If $170 mil budget is accurate, it looks like KOTM will eventually make a small profit. The failings of all films released over the last few weeks is not a coincidence. I think audiences are suffering from theater fatigue since Avengers.

Hopefully WB/Legendary recognizes the shortcomings of ALL recent films and does not have a major knee-jerk reaction with GvK.
