Expecting the best opening and second-rate footage of every film released so far during the pandemic, Warner Bros. and Legendary’s Godzilla v. Kong is ready to repeat easily for the third time at the box office.
The film slipped nearly 57 percent last weekend after coming out of the Easter frame and some fan-powered front-loading, landing at the bottom of expectations in its second-rate performances. Even without the studio’s daily reports this week, there’s no reason why the film shouldn’t focus on the best third weekend pandemic to come Tenet$ 4.7 million last September.
Probable results based on current models for the third frame of the monster show are between $ 7.5 million and $ 10 million.
Elsewhere, retention should be kept up to date for most key versions. The average weekend-to-weekend drop from April 9-11 is below 10 percent in the rest of the top 10 films. As several more Regal locations opened this weekend and there is no significant competition to enter the market, there is no reason to expect a sharp decline. The number of theaters also remains largely stable.
However, one of the factors you need to consider in the race for second place may be Nobodythe release of PVOD this Friday. Does this soften the appeal of the box office just enough to lag behind Disney’s Heaven and the last dragon and / or Sony The wicked remains to be seen, but has so far developed many encouraging legs.
With the release of the new versions, the one with a limited footprint will be NEON In the ground. Unfortunately, the studio did not confirm the exact number of locations, although The Boxoffice Company’s Showtimes dashboard recorded no less than 527 for the weekend – indicating a likely total near or above 550. This could potentially be enough. to generate an opening weekend close to or among the top ten.
Looking ahead, next Friday offers the launch of Warner Bros. ‘last day and date experiment with a well – known brand in the form of Mortal Kombatwhile Sony ‘s FUNinmation will chair the domestic debut of Demon Slayer: The Movie – Mugen Train – Japan’s biggest box office hit of all time.
