Warner Bros./Legendary’s Godzilla vs. Kong monster mash continued its domestic box office rule, adding an estimated $7.7 million across 3,000 screens through the April 18 weekend to bring its North American total to $80.5 million through three pandemic weekends.
The number is even more impressive considering most theaters are operating at 50% capacity and the movie has been available to HBO Max subscribers since its theatrical debut.
The movie has topped $350 million in worldwide box office receipts.
Universal Pictures’ Nobody, starring “Better Call Saul” lead Bob Odenkirk, took No. 2 on the domestic screens with $2.5 million; $19 million total ($34 million globally). The title is also available on PVOD for $19.99 due to Universal’s rev-share retail agreement with AMC Theatres and Cinemark.
Sony Pictures’ The Unholy finished No. 3 with $2 million/$9.5 million total, which is slightly ahead of Disney/Pixar’s Raya and the Last Dragon with $1.9 million, $37 million total. The movie is available to Disney+ subs for a $29.99 add-on.
Finally, Warner’s live-action animated hit Tom & Jerry topped $100 million at the global box office with $1.1 in domestic ticket sales, $42 million total, to finish No. 5.
