Godzilla: King of the Monsters has concluded its theatrical run and its extended run in China. The film managed to rake in a grand total of $385.3 million! Domestically, King of the Monsters earned just over $110 Million, with over half of its box office pull coming from foreign markets. By comparison, Gareth Edwards' Godzilla (2014) finished its theatrical run earning $529 Million, however King of the Monsters was only in theaters for 63 consecutive days, whereas Edwards' Godzilla remained in theaters for 105 days. That's a 6 week difference. Regardless, we're glad to see KOTM managed to pull some additional earnings from China during its extended run.

Thankfully, Legendary and Warner Brothers were not concerned with King of the Monsters' Box Office performance, and remain committed to expanding the Monsterverse. Toho sees great potential for their Hollywood partnership as well with the property.

You can continue to support the Monsterverse and pre-order your own copy of Godzilla: King of the Monsters now! Blu-Rays and DvDs will hit shelves August 27th, with digital downloads available August 13th! Don't forget, the Blu-Ray is expected to feature 6-8 minutes of deleted scenes.

Well, we tried.

I'm still proud of this movie for being what it was.

It will go down in history (well, at least until next year) as the best American Godzilla movie, which is one hell of an accomplishment. And it still made profit, so it’s a win for everyone! Well... less so for the people behind the movie sadly

"It will go down in history (well, at least until next year) as the best American Godzilla movie"

That's a very supjective opinion.

TheGMan123 #TeamGhidorah

I don't really think it is a subjective opinion. In Human element, action, drama, comedy, etc., it easily tops the 3 current American Godzilla films.

Really, though, any film that wasn't Disney didn't do too hot this year financially speaking if they were expected to be large theatre presences. Between being sandwiched within multiple strong Disney films and the massiveness of the MCU, we didn't do too bad.

Next year will at least be somewhat less crazy.

I mean... every opinion is subjective, so it's a little redundant.

The press certainly deems this film as an under-performer which makes me think WB's marketing team will want to take a different approach and distance GvK from this movie. (Hence why we've not seen or heard much of anything from GvK.)

It'll still have to contend with Universal's The Invisible Man the same weekend. (Which I have a sneaking suspicion will be moved since it just started production last month. But for now, it's there.)

I'm more concerned with A Quiet Place 2, the following weekend, and Mulan two weeks later. The former now has quite the following and the latter--Well... Disney will be Disney.

I meant the “down in history” thing as a joke (though in my opinion it is for now), so sorry if I wasn’t clear on that lol

Is it the end of its foreign run or its run entirely? Because it's playing in one theater around me still.

G. H. (Gman) #TeamGhidorah

Aug-04-2019 9:12 PM

It's ended its Chinese run and it's still in a couple theaters around me--Including the discount theater. It's supposedly still in a few Japanese theaters, but it's making such little money at this point that they've stopped tracking it at the Japanese box office.

I can't imagine the world wide gross will really get much higher than $385.3M at this point.

Yeah probably not.

It was a great movie , I hope they continue after Godzilla vs Kong . Long live Legendary Godzilla . For a Godzilla movie it still did well .

I do admit, competition next year isn't exactly great. However, we're at least not running into the same problem as this year where we had multiple massive releases one after another by Disney covering the opening and ending moments of our monster film.

The small competition is low, and the large competition will be low for awhile. We've got nearly 2 months with only 2 large pieces of expected competition and a few other potential wrenches, but nothing as active as this past May/June.

At the very least, I think we're in a good position to do better than KOTM financially and potentially the best out of the Monsterverse to date. Now, whether Wingard is up to the task with the film in general? That one is up in the air.

I loved Godzilla king of the monsters it might have exceeded my expectations but I know some people didn't really like not getting to know some of the characters but there were more to some of them unlike Godzilla (2014) I loved the great fights especially given the fact Godzilla has more face expressions but as a g-fan of course I don't like the competition this movie had but I can't be mad other people have certain opinions on movies plus It won't really change the fact that I love godzilla
