Godzilla Vs. Kong has set the opening day sales record since COVID hit.
While this isn’t the craziest news, considering the numbers it achieved internationally, it bodes well for theatres in the US. According to Movieweb, the movie’s opening and number predictions in the USA are smashing all openings for the past year-plus.
