“Godzilla versus. Kong’s Quiet First Weekend at the Box Office – Deadline

SUNDAY AM WRITE-THRU: Refresh for updates and chart Without new wide and New Line versions Mortal combat pushed to next weekend, Warner Bros./Legendary’s Godzilla vs. Kong is still in charge in 3,001 cinemas with 3 days of $ 7.7M, -44% cash now $ 80.5M national. Broken it is $ 2.075 million on Friday, -47% from a week ago, $ 3.6M Saturday and $ 2 million Sunday. As we told you last weekend, the Adam Wingard feature is about to take advantage.

GvK will be on HBO Max for another two weeks, then it will be exclusive to theaters for another month. As we mentioned earlier, the fourth is on PVOD in Canada, given the number of theaters that are closed there. The provinces of Ontario, Manitoba and Alberta remain closed in the Great White North.

Although Godzilla vs. Kong lit the domestic box office on fire over Easter weekend, we’re still on hold here, waiting for the domestic soundtrack to wake up. I mean, New York is still at 33% capacity. Really, Cuomo, this has to stop. According to distribution sources, 56% of the 5.8K theaters in the United States and Canada are open.

Also, this week’s news of the Arclight / Pacific theaters closing is a huge blow to the Los Angeles theatrical market. In 2019, LA generated more than $ 905 million and this local channel fed 11% of that number. Seriously, the studios can’t live without that money, and Hollywood Arclight and Cinerama Dome are launch theaters. This is where an independent film from an aspiring filmmaker can make its debut, and ultimately cross paths, shine and make a long-term career. Conversations with sources last week believe these theaters will return, it’s just a matter of who, when, and if it’s Decurion in some form or form in the end as a minority partner.

Everything there is pure speculation and not solid, as Arclight / Pacific / Decurion has gone radio silent in their lease negotiations. As for those kicking the tires, I can tell you it’s not Alamo (going bankrupt), AMC, or Netflix. As for Netflix, despite their purchases from Paris and The Egyptian, they have no desire to own a bigger theater and stray beyond their streaming wheelhouse. But all of that is a failure for the film industry: if you really want to play around with theater windows and do daring things like streaming day in and day out, here’s what’s on. Theaters are closing, especially as they try to resuscitate themselves after a year of lockdown.

As for exposure on the rise: Regal reopened 11 locations last weekend, with plans to reopen 44 more next weekend in time for New Line Mortal combat. Another 177 Regal sites will be turning on the lights for the weekend of May 7-9, followed by 138 on May 14 and 129 on May 21. In California, 15 counties went from red to orange, increasing the capacity of their auditoriums to 50% or 200 people. Among these are the counties of Napa, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and Ventura.
