News from around the web

Godzilla Vs. Kong has a second high grossing weekend and retains the top spot on the US box office and with no studios releasing any big movies the top new film is Voyagers at number 5.

As confidence grows in the industry with the success Warner Bros. is having with the bog monster movie more hits are coming in the weeks ahead and studios are starting to reschedule their much delayed potential blockbusters.

Here is the US box office QuickView

  • Number 1 - Godzilla Vs. Kong (2nd Week)
  • Highest debut - Voyagers (@5)
  • Longest run - The Croods: A New Age (20 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - The Croods: A New Age ($56.71 Million)

Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movies at the US box office 9th - 11th April 2021.

Godzilla Vs. Kong

<u><i><b>Godzilla</b></i></u> Vs. Kong

Warner Bros. must be finally pleased that one of their movies is re-starting the US box office after the closures of the global pandemic, they tries with Tenet at the end of the summer last year which failed but the big monster fight movie is hitting the right spot.

On its second weekend of release the movie takes a remarkable $13.38 Million, although this is a drop of 72% over last weekend, a higher drop than you would normally see for a big grossing debut.

The film has taken a very good, for the pandemic era, $69.5 Million since its release and is the top grossing movie in America for 2021.

Nobody

Another film which is enjoying success is the former number one movie which climbs back to number 2 this weekend with $2.65 Million, only 14% down from last weekend.

This gives the movie a $15.6 Million total gross from 3 weeks of release.

The Unholy~2021

Despite the poor reviews for this Evan Spiliotopoulos directed film, and falling to number 3 this weekend, this horror movie is enjoying some surprise success.

This weekend the film takes $2.4 Million, a 25% drop from last weekend, which takes its gross to $6.73 Million on its second weekend of release.

Raya and the Last Dragon

Disney's latest animated feature is still doing well on the box office and after 6 weeks of release it takes $2.14 Million, up 4% from last weekend, for a total of $35.24 Million.

Voyagers

Voyagers

Highest new movie of the week lands at number 5 as director Neil Burger scores a top 5 movie with an debut gross of $1.35 Million.

This weekend marks the first weekend that indicates there are signs of a return to normal as the Warner Bros. movie Godzilla Vs. Kong storms into the box office with the highest debut gross since cinemas closed in March 2020.

The monster battle movie opened in America on Wednesday and has taken an incredible $48 Million until the end of Sunday night.

Also new on the box office is The Unholy which came in at 2 and The Girl Who Believes In Miracles which entered the box office at 6 with $580,000.

US box office Quickview.

  • Number 1 - Godzilla Vs. Kong (1st Weekend)
  • Highest debut - Godzilla Vs. Kong (@1)
  • Longest run - The Croods: A New Age (19 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - The Croods: A New Age ($56.3 Million)

Here is the North American box office top 5 breakdown 2nd - 4th April 2021

Godzilla Vs. Kong

<u><i><b>Godzilla</b></i></u> Vs Kong

Bringing together 2 of the biggest monsters in the cinema world has re-ignited the box office in a way where others have failed and the high action special effects movie takes $48.5 Million since its opening over 5 days.

The weekend Friday to Sunday gross is $32.2 Million which is still higher than anything in recent times.

The movie is now the third biggest movie since the pandemic started needing to just beat The Croods: A New Age and Tenet which it will do, but more importantly it getting the public back in movie theatres, and with most cinemas still only at 25% capacity this is even more impressive.

And to top things off the movie has even beaten the opening gross of the 2019 movie Godzilla: King of the Monsters which managed nearly $48 Million with no pandemic closures and limitations!

Finally the movie took 80% of the total of this weeks top 15 movie.

The Unholy~2021

The Unholy

After all the news about Godzilla Vs. Kong its easy to forget that there was also a new movie at number 2, Evan Spiliotopoulos directs Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the movie which takes a very respectable $3.2 Million over the weekend.

The movie got fairly bad reviews but the public seem to like it and its good to see a second new movie hitting the box office in the current box office climate.

Nobody

Falling from number 1 to number 3 this weekend the Bob Odenkirk starring movie takes £3.07 on its second weekend of release, a 55% drop, giving the movie a total of $11.87 Million.

Raya and the Last Dragon

Disneys latest animated feature is this week at number 4, falling from number 2, with $1.4 Million, a 44% drop from last weekend.

The movie has now taken $39.5 Million after 5 weeks in cinemas, and with it also Disney+ prime that will have taken some of the box office taking from the movie.

Tom and Jerry

The cat and mouse duo fall to 5 this weekend with $1.4 Million, 44% down, giving it a $39.5 Million over 6 weeks.

The movie is currently the top grossing movie in America for 2021, it will lose out that place by next weekend by Godzilla Vs. kong.

This weekend has a couple of big hitters making their way to streaming services that have been delayed for months due to the lockdown in the UK.

Godzilla Vs. Kong and Chaos Walking are both potential blockbusters that have missed out on a place in movie theatres due to the over crowding that is happening later in the year due to delayed films.

    The first real sign of a box office recovery in North America was evident on Wednesday March 21st as the Warner Bros. movie Godzilla Vs. Kong had a massive $9.6 Million debut.

    <u><i><b>Godzilla</b></i></u> Vs. Kong

    This is by far the biggest opening for a movie over the last year during the lockdowns of the COVID-19 pandemic beating Tenet and Wonder Woman 1984.

    Consider that, as with all Warner Bros. movies in 2021, the movie is also available in the US on the HBO Max streaming platform, meaning that people are hungry for movie in a theatre, and not many have the streaming service.

    Movie theatres in two of the biggest US areas, New Your and Los Angeles, have re-opened to limited capacity over the last couple of weeks which will have helped boost the total for the movie.

    Cinemas Re-Opening

    The movie also had a massive opening this weekend in China where it grossed $69.2 Million topping the box office in that terretory and making it the top grossing movie of the week globally.

    With cinemas set to open in the UK on May 17th after a nearly 5 month closure things are looking promising for the industry that has struggled over the last year.

    This week hitting the home streaming services are Tom And Jerry in a live action/cartoon mix, adaptation Six Minutes To Midnight starring Eddie Izzard along with Made In Italy and Malibu Road.
