Godzilla Vs Kong had a stupendous run at the box office in its first week. Thanks to the heavy contribution from South India, the Hollywood film has performed in a really good way considering the pandemic situation.
After taking an opening of 6.40 crores last Wednesday, the film continued to remain steady throughout the week. It did see a drop on Tuesday i.e. Day 7 but that had to happen considering the consistently increasing COVID-19 cases in many parts of the country.
Godzilla vs Kong collected 2.25 crores approx on Tuesday thus taking the 7 days business to 35.15 crores approx. We had reported to you yesterday that it has registered among the highest-grossing Hollywood films in India by crossing the likes of Skyfall & Ant-Man And The Wasp. Now the film has strengthened its position in the chart.
After its 7 days run, Godzilla vs Kong has crossed The Dark Knight Rises (33 crores) & Justice League (35 crores) as well. This makes it the 34th highest-grossing Hollywood film in India and the next targets of the film will be Black Panther (38 crores), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (40 crores) & Frozen 2 (44 crores).
