Godzilla Minus One has been released in the somewhat daring month of November--Daring in that schools have not been let out and, traditionally, the Godzilla films in recent years, and during the Millennium and Heisei series, were during seasons where school is out. Apparently that didn't hurt it too much. Quite the opposite actually. â¨â¨Godzilla Minus One has had the largest opening day of any of the Reiwa or Monsterverse movies in Japan. The most successful movie of the era was Shin Godzilla (2016), which finished with 8.25 Billion Yen. However, the largest opening day in recent years went to Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) with 241,905,100 Yen, before finishing with 2.84 Billion.

Godzilla Minus One opened to a whopping estimate of 455,000,000 yen. Roughly translating to $3.05 million, Godzilla Minus One is set to be the biggest opening weekend of the series in its homeland. Take a look at the opening day comparisons below:

- Yen (USD conversion in the year of movie's release, USD conversion today) - Screen count

Godzilla '14
- 175,033,800 Yen ($1.70M in 2014, $1.17M in 2023) - 427 Screens

Where do you think Minus One will end up for the weekend? What do you predict its total will be? Sound off!

Set in a post-war Japan, Godzilla Minus One will once again show us a Godzilla that is a terrifying and overwhelming force. Japan, which had already been devastated by the war, faces a new threat with Godzilla, bringing the country from nothing (zero) into the ‘minus.’

Godzilla Minus One
is directed by Takashi Yamazaki. An award winning filmmaker and avid Godzilla fan, his work on Always: Sunset on Third Street (2005) earned him two Japanese Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Screenwriter. He was honored with another Best Director and Best Screenplay nomination for the sequel, Always: Sunset on Third Street 2 (2007). In 2016, he won the Best Director category again for The Eternal Zero. Yamazaki also helmed highly acclaimed actioners, Returner, Space Battleship Yamato and many others.

He gave Godzilla a cameo during an opening dream sequence in Always: Sunset on Third Street 2. In 2021 he returned to Godzilla and directed footage for Seibuen Amusement Park's Godzilla the Ride: Giant Monster Battle Summit.

Godzilla Minus One is now playing in Japan. It opens in the United States on December 1st, 2023.
