Warner Brothers and Legendary can celebrate a big win this week for the Monsterverse! Over this past Easter Weekend Godzilla vs. Kong broke U.S Box Office records after taking the biggest haul since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic! It's been reported that over Easter Sunday Godzilla vs. Kong raked in $285 Million!

Since the start of the pandemic, many blockbusters were delayed, canceled or sent directly to streaming services, negating a proper theatrical release. Thanks to efforts by Legendary Pictures, Godzilla vs. Kong released on both select streaming platforms as well as operating movie theaters! With many theaters across the country still inoperable however, it's even more impressive that the film managed to bring in such a significant return!

Fans of the Monsterverse were hoping Godzilla vs. Kong would turn out to be a win for the studios and thus would potentially solidify a continuation of the Monsterverse. Despite a global pandemic massively impacting the film industry, it would appear our wishes were granted and Godzilla vs. Kong is receiving the support it needs from fans and average moviegoers.

Great work to everyone who has paid to seen the film and support this great franchise!

Pretty sure Monsterverse fans will be getting more if they want it.

The movie is doing better than King of the Monsters during a pandemic and fewer markets. This is embarrassing for King of the Monsters, but great news for Godzilla vs. Kong, WB and theaters in general.

Ya movie was awesome and fans are letting be known that we need the monsterverse to continue. Although it's kinda scary how much more powerful Godzilla has gotten from the each movie. Maybe this time he'll blast completely through the planet.

HinikunaGoji,
I just don't understand what you mean by that comment.

@Gman

Fans of Monsterverse are using a lot of the same tactics that fans of DC used to get the Sydner cut. 

Don’t blame me blame the stupid autocorrect

HinikunaGoji,
Maybe. But Wingard even said there's no director's cut he wants to do. Whereas Snyder had his entire movie changed without him being involved. I don't think we'll get any sort of director's cut out of this.

I mean the tactics used to get directors cut, are being employed by fans who are hoping for more monsterverse. 

I should explain things more.

HinikunaGoji,
Okay, that makes sense.

Yeah, the Snyder Cut has set a new precedence of entitlement for this age. Now everyone thinks they should get a director's cut of a favorite film. But like Wingard said, it's much more difficult to make a shorter and tighter film. Most movies start out as 5-6 hours long in what's called an "assembly cut" and then they start hacking off what doesn't work or is unnecessary from there.

Zack Snyder has no understanding or self-awareness of this.

@Gman 

I agree. If every movie was a directors cut, then people probably wouldn't watch them.

HinikunaGoji,
Beautifully worded.
