We had a suspicion this would happen and indeed, it has! Godzilla vs. Kong has officially surpassed Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters in global box office earnings today! The fourth Monsterverse movie has officially reached $390.2 million in box office returns, setting it ahead of Godzilla 2 by $3.6 so far (King of the Monsters only earned $386.6 million globally during its theatrical run).
This officially places Godzilla vs. Kong in third place, behind Godzilla 2014 at $529 million and the Monsterverse's leading film, Kong Skull Island which earned $566.7 million!
Godzilla vs. Kong's theatrical run hasn't even concluded yet and already having surpassed KOTM while releasing in a pandemic to limited theater screenings and sharing revenue with streaming platforms, is an enormous victory!

Very doubtful it will hit G'14 and Skull Island, given how many theaters are still closed around the country and its box office intake is slowing to a crawl. It still has 5 more countries it has to open in, including Japan. Those 5 should bring another $35-40 million.
Yeah I think KOTM overall is the better film of the two, but the fact GvK has done so well with so many negative factors playing against its release, it's kind of disappointing to think KOTM couldn't have pulled off better numbers.
imma not explain my reasoning for thinking Emma was the best character. Mark was a bit annoying for knowing everything. The story overall should have focused more on Madison not mark. Mark had an arc which was great but, the movie really set up to focus on her at the beginning. It would have been more compelling to see her struggle between her moms and dad’s sides of the conflict.
They really should've focused on Madison. She ended up being the one to save the world, and WB pushed Millie Bobby Brown's character to the front of the marketing to the point she was the face of KOTM's marketing. I was so ticked off when I saw how her character was handled in GVK...
Yeah, those thoughts string closely to mine. But to extend your point....if I had written the movie, I would've nixed Josh and Bernie and focused on her tension between Mark. THEN I would have her go alone to find out APEX's intentions and have her get a self-reflection journey and figure out if she's right to support Big G. And anyways, WB and Legendary kept the character in GVK for one reason (probably), because Millie Bobby Brown is an insanely popular actress.
My thoughts on Madison Russell in GVK in a nutshell.
I mean, yeah, it's a movie about two giant monsters, big monke and big lizard, having basically a death battle. AND it was a battle that happened way back in the 60s, and we wanted a rematch. People love that stuff.
