Nothing quite says Easter tent pole Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, Which is set to take the world by storm with a box office debut of approximately $135 million, supported by 63 foreign markets and 3,850 theaters in the United States.

Warner Bros. had great luck launching the legendary IP over Easter 2021 with Godzilla vs. Kongwhich attracted audiences to return to watching movies after a year-long quarantine due to the Corona virus, and the studio chose to adhere to this framework. Godzilla vs. Kong It grossed $48 million in a five-day launch in the US, day-and-date with a drop on HBO Max at the time.

The international launch price is expected to range between $80 million and $85 million, while the domestic price is around $50 million per presales. Godzilla vs. Kong It debuted with $105 million in comparable overseas markets at today's prices (including $63 million from China, also at today's exchange). So why would this person view a potential opening softer? There are a number of factors.

When it was released in March 2021, GVK It had the biggest overseas debut for a Hollywood film during the pandemic, and in just 38 international box office markets.

This film had a particularly good start in China (where Legendary markets and distributes the modern monster series). But times have changed, and caution is in order as Hollywood films are far less successful in the Middle Kingdom. GXK It leads advance ticket sales heading into the weekend, but it remains to be seen if a start of around $40 million is possible.

Here are some openings in China in the restated dollar: Kong: Skull Island ($68 million), Godzilla vs. Kong ($63 million), Mig 2 ($53 million), Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom ($31 million) and Sand Dunes: Part Two ($20 million) – This paints a picture.

We are still expecting GXK To excel in Asia (although it is likely to land in Korea in third place behind the juggernaut Exahoma and a new local address) as well as in Latin America. Europe can be mixed in franchise.

It is also important to remember: at a time GVK In 2021, there are still capacity restrictions in some regions, with major European companies closed, with the exception of Spain. So when you take into consideration the Euro markets are going this time GXKwe're looking at release dates that haven't been consistent historically.

It is worth noting that when GVK It premiered in certain pockets at the time, and was the only film to run, which affected some of the arcs. Today, there is more competition.

It is worth noting that France and Germany are not in this pavilion (as well as other French- and German-speaking markets) and the Middle East (which falls during the Ramadan period) and Japan will also go later, on April 26.

Meanwhile, in the US, we expect Sony Ghostbusters: The Frozen Empire It dropped 65% to around $15 million in its second weekend. The Gil Kenan-directed sequel grossed $2.8 million on Monday night, pushing its domestic total to more than $47 million.
