Godzilla vs. Kong has officially surpassed $400 million in revenue at the worldwide box office and the film hasn't even released in Japan yet! Defying all odds and while combating a global pandemic, Godzilla vs. Kong has dominated the worldwide box office for 3 consecutive weeks - making it the most successful film of the Covid pandemic! With its May 14th (expected) release date in Japan and France next month, we expect these numbers to take us close to $455 million, perhaps even closer to that glorious $500 million mark!
With the release of Warner Brothers' Mortal Kombat now competing at the box office and online streaming platforms, we are seeing domestic returns start to taper off for Godzilla vs. Kong. But the staggered release dates will help bolster additional revenue well into the next month!

SarcasticGoji, Yeah, it's a good thing ticket prices for Hollywood movies are normally pretty high in Japan, otherwise the movies really aren't doing much better than the Millennium series.
Most countries rank their films' success by attendance instead of box office though. The Monsterverse movies have made a fair bit of money, but otherwise have been somewhat lacking attendance-wise. I suppose they do okay for Hollywood movies though:
SarcasticGoji, The Millennium Series was in danger of ending after Megaguirus flopped, but when Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah was a marked success, Toho decided to keep soldiering on.
Godzilla: Final Wars was intended to be the final film once announced. The only way Toho would have continued is if it made an unprecedented amount of money. (Think, Shin Godzilla.) But instead it flopped, in part because Howl's Moving Castle had come out that month and Miyazaki movies become some of the highest grossing films by default.
Nuance to tone and detail - stronger characters - better writing - unique atmosphere to most blockbuster films - music - minimalistic approach the experimented with the suspense of the film (whether it worked or not) - Fukushima imagery - adherence to ideas and themes inspired by the original film and literature such as parallels between Ford and Godzilla relating back to themes by Joseph Campbell and even John Bunyan - quite a good deal actually.
Agreed with SarcasticGoji in that the effort in characters for GvK was borderline nonexistent. I would definitely say 2014 was much more generous "try". For as short lived as Joe Brody was, he was easily the Monsterverse's most impassioned and relatable character.
