We finally get to see the mighty Godzilla Vs Kong just which is releasing in India today, 2 days before the global release, by Warner Bros. Let us check how much can be the first day box office collections for the monster flick
Directed by Adam Wingard (Blair Witch 2016, You’re Next and The Guest), Godzilla Vs Kong is a follow up to Godzilla: King Of Monsters (2019) which was a sequel to the 2014 monster hit Godzilla (2014). In parallel, the King Kong film, Kong : The Skull Island, in 2017. Warner Bros was planning to release its monster universe in 2020 but due to the pandemic situation last year, it got postponed to 2021.
In Godzilla Vs Kong we could see that Kong is being brought to the city which is being threatened by another monster, Godzilla. However, it is still not known that why Godzilla, who was actually the hero in the previous franchises, has turned into an enemy against humanity. Anyways, the trailer is massive and will give you goosebumps the moment we will see two giants on an epic battle. We also get to see the history behind the battle as other monsters have been introduced in Godzilla Vs Kong.
While the trailer of Godzilla Vs Kong had generated a solid views (71 million), Warner Bros have done a good job in promoting the film over social media. The Hollywood monster attack film generally do well in India but with increase in the number of cases and restrictions put up in few cities might prevent Godzilla Vs Kong to make an impact at the India box office.
Godzilla Vs Kong is getting a good response in Mumbai even though it is the hardest hit with COVID-19 cases as the trend shows that more than 60% is in the fast filling mode. The Delhi region is decent with 30-40% in the 4DX version but the IMAX and 2D version is slow. Like Delhi, Bangalore is showing a good response in 4DX version. In Hyderabad, 4DX version is already sold out while other versions are still slow. Chennai is a hot-selling cake for IMAX 2D version and Pune still needs to show some traction. As per analysis based on the trend, Godzilla Vs Kong has the chance to score some where between Rs 4-5 crore.
Godzilla Vs Kong will be the fourth film in the series of third film in Legendary’s Monster Verse series.
