Hollywood version “GODZILLASeries and “ (2017) crosses over “ The latest work, the movie『 』Was released to the United States on March 31, 2021. Already released in 38 markets around the world, this work, which has achieved one of the best results in Corona with overseas opening box office revenue of $ 123.1 million, became a monster-class start dash in the United States.
According to media reports, “Godzilla vs. Kong” will be released on March 31st.Published at 2,409 halls nationwide, box office revenue on the first day recorded $ 9.6 million.. Although it was released on weekdays, it achieved the highest record on the first day of Corona. The screening hall will be expanded to 3,064 halls on April 2 (local time), so further performance is expected. It should be noted that this work has been simultaneously distributed on HBO Max from the first day of its release. Even so, the fact that many spectators visited the theater is proof that many spectators were anxious for the theater experience.
In addition, this work has already gained enthusiastic support from the audience.CinemaScore, based on audience satisfaction survey, is certified as the highest A rating in MonsterVerse history.. In the theater survey on the first day, 86% of the audience responded positively, and 74% answered that they were “highly recommended.” Support from African Americans was particularly strong, with 92% saying they were positive and 85% saying they were “highly recommended.” Also,US Rotten Tomatoes audience score is 95%、US IMDb user survey is ★ 4.0High grade. The criticism is also conspicuous, and the criticism score of Rotten Tomatoes is 79%, and it is certified as “Certified Fresh” (both as of 15:00 on April 2 * Japan time).
“Godzilla vs. Kong” has the potential to further increase box office revenue due to Corona’s best start and high praise of the work. However, in this situation, it is difficult to predict the box office due to the large-scale release and simultaneous distribution on HBO Max on the first day of weekdays. Regarding the opening box office revenue, Deadline of the United States stated that it was “20 to 30 million dollars, and there is a possibility of more than that”, and The Hollywood Reporter of the United States stated that it was “30 to 40 million dollars”, and the forecast value may vary. Understand.
However, at this point, it is certain that it will exceed the $ 16.7 million (three days) of “Wonder Woman 1984” and break the initial box office record of Corona. From April 5th, it seems to be advantageous to relax the audience capacity limit for movie theaters in Los Angeles to 50%. I hope that this work will support the box office and commemorate the revival of Hollywood.
The movie “Godzilla vs. Kong” will be released nationwide on May 14, 2021 (Friday).
