Warner Bros.' Godzilla: King of the Monsters is making waves both domestically and overseas. The film has already grossed $12.7 million from approximately 16,500 overseas screens, making it the #1 film in several Asian countries.
Domestically, Godzilla: King of the Monsters has made $6.3 million on opening night, putting it ahead of other monster films like 2017’s Kong: Skull Island, which made $3.7 million off Thursday night shows, and 2018’s Pacific Rim Uprising sequel, which made $2.35 million. However, the film didn't beat out its predecessor, 2014’s Godzilla, which made $9.3 million. It is currently being played in 4,108 theaters across the United States.
Though Godzilla: King of the Monsters is sitting at 41% on Rotten Tomatoes, the film is still projected to meet or surpass $50 million domestically and $150 million internationally this weekend.
The film has made $574K in Russia, $569K in Germany and $507K in France. Across the globe, Godzilla is competing with Disney's Aladdin, Marv Films' Rocketman and Universal/Blumhouse’s Ma. According to Deadline, the film is projected to make $70 million over China's three-day opening weekend.
