I think it’s going to be a long, long time– that is, “Rocketman” will be with us all summer, but “Godzilla” will have a short, stubby run.
Opening night box office was huge for yet another Godzilla remake, at $19.6 million. Elton John’s “Rocketman” will make only a little more than that for the weekend–around $23 million. But audiences will be singing along to the biopic long after Godzilla has been caught or shot, trust me.
“Rocketman” did make a very healthy $9.2 million.
That’s called “legs” in box office lingo.
But hold on for the weekend totals. “Rocketman” will be a blast. Saturday night’s alright for rocking!
Keep refreshing for updates…
