In what is a victory for theater chains, Godzilla Vs. Kong dominated the overseas box office this weekend!
Godzilla vs. Kong opened to a pandemic-best $121.8 million at the foreign box office, giving hope that franchises can make a comeback as theaters reopen.
Christopher Nolan’s Tenet previously had the biggest offshore start of the pandemic with $53 million. Legendary and Warner Bros.’ monster mashup enjoyed a huge take in China, where it launched to a huge $70.3 million.
The movie did pandemic-best opening business in a number of other countries as well, including Mexico ($6.3 million). It also grossed $6.3 million in Australia to already surpass the entire gross of King of the Monsters.
Godzilla Vs. Kong opens in North America on March 31st.
