Godzilla Vs Kong scored a post pandemic weekend record as the film collected $32 million overs its three day weekend and $48.50 million over five days. This is far better than the pre release market expectations of $30-40 million over five days.



These numbers mean that the major titles in the summer should hold their release dates as a near $50 million five day total will give enough confidence. It has to be noted that these numbers have come with a same day release on HBO max and the film was free for subscribers. There are films like Cruella, Fast & Furious 9 and Top Gun Maverick due in the summer.



Tenet came in September 2020 and did business of $20.2 million in its first weekend while Wonder 1984 did $16.7 million in December though there were less cinemas open at that time. The best overall numbers in the States have probably come with The Croods - A New Age which has done business similar to Tenet and more than Wonder Woman 1984 despite being a smaller film. 



The Croods - A New Age has grossed around $56 million till date and although Godzilla Vs Kong will easily surpass it will have to go well past the number to be seen as an overall better performance. The Croods - The New Age released in November 2020 and collected well through the peak of the pandemic.



The strong business in the States and China also having a holiday weekend means the worldwide business should be over $275 million after the second weekend and the $365 million post pandemic record of Tenet is in sight and if Godzilla Vs Kong gets there it would be coming with practically all of Europe closed.
