This weekend Godzilla: King of the Monsters stopped out the completion to take the top spot. The movie did alright at the box office with $49 million domestically. The competition this weekend was fierce with Rocketman and Ma taking a good chunk of viewers away from the film. It didn’t help that the studio waited so long after the first movie to release this one.
The Elton John bioptic, Rocketman took in $25 million as the movie Ma brought in $18.2 million. Aladdin continued to print money as it grossed $42 million. The movie now sits at $445 million world-wide. Godzilla: King of the Monsters brought in $130 million in the foreign market. The world-wide total sits at $179 million, the movie is not looking like it will make over $300 million. The next movie will take audiences back to Skull Island as we see King Kong fight Godzilla. Avengers: Endgame is so close to becoming the all time movie around the world. It just seems like it doesn’t have the steam to keep going. Looks like Avatar will keep that title.
Weekend Top Three
3. Rocketman $25 million
2. Aladdin $42 million
1. Godzilla: King of the Monsters $49 million
Next weekend Godzilla: King of the Monsters should easily stay in the top three. The fact that the last X-Men movie, Dark Phoenix is coming out won’t stop the king. Fans have been unsure about this movie since they hear the movie was having production problems. The Secret Life of Pets 2 should be the movie that gives everyone the most competition. Hopefully everyone had a great weekend as the tempetures begin to rise in the coming week.
