Monster Wait: “Godzilla v Kong” Teeters On $100 Mil Domestic Box Office for 3 Weeks, May Happen Today


Oh, and they are thisclose.

Warner Bros. “Godzilla v. Kong” didn’t cross the $100 million line in the US on Sunday. The monster movie has waited three weeks in a row to finally send off fireworks and congrats to all involved.

What a wait it’s been! As of Sunday night the first movie to make money in the pandemic closed out its total at $99,704,232. Ouch! And that’s been going on for three weeks in a row, when the theater count started dropping.

The current theater count is down to 987.

It’s like “Godzilla v Kong” finally crossed the $100 million last night. If not, it will be tonight. Not to worry: the worldwide total including the US is around $435 million. It was a big hit. Those big boys will be back in some form!
