This past April it was announced that Godzilla vs. Kong's Japanese release was delayed indefinitely, due to a rise in COVID cases. It has been rumored that the movie would open in July. Toho made it official today with a July 2nd announcement.

The Japanese poster has been updated to reflect the new release date.

Godzilla vs. Kong has become the highest grossing Hollywood film of the COVID-19 pandemic with $435.9 million worldwide. Domestically, it sits at $98.3 million with hopes of being the first film to break $100 million in the US since early 2020.

Godzilla vs. Kong hits 4K, Blu-ray and DVD June 15th.

Let's hope it'll take the box office numbers to another level.

I expect an over-under of $30M largely due to how expensive tickets for Hollywood movies are in Japan.

G. H. (Gman),

Being a bit pessimistic, King of the Monsters grossed $25,400,000 in Japan. Considering the fact that a lot might have seen Godzilla vs Kong on their phones, I expect the box office numbers to be below $20M.

($25.8 million, but that's splitting hairs.)
The difference is film and television piracy is taken a lot more seriously in Japan. I have no doubt some risk it, but it's much more enforced and doesn't normally effect box office receipts. Take Godzilla (2014) for instance. It was released in Japan two months after the world wide release in May. But it still made $30.5 million.

The main thing I see hurting it is COVID and the capacity theaters are running. I think it'll be lucky if goes over $30 million, but might just barely hit below it.

Of course there's always the unlikely chance of a Demon Slayer effect, where Japanese audiences hungry to go back to theaters blow up the box office numbers. Given how fickle it is, Japan will be an interesting place to see how it does. I'll be following it very closely this July here.

It's also worth mentioning that Japan gauges the success of films off attendance numbers over gross. So how many tickets are sold will be a larger indicator for its success.
