Godzilla truly is the King of the Monsters because the popular monster character has managed to be on top of the Box Office this week even though the movie has been getting mixed reviews.

It looks like the general movie going audience likes the movie more than reviewers.

As reported by Box Office Pro, Godzilla: King of the Monsters estimated to have grossed over $49.5 million in its opening weekend.

While this is much lower than the opening of Godzilla 2014, it is still high enough to be number one this weekend in North America.

It looks like the movie will have to do better overseas in order to recoup its production and marketing budget.

From a worldwide standpoint, the movie has earned $179 million globally in its opening weekend. The movie will need to gross around $400 million to $500 million worldwide to break even on its estimated $200 million budget.

Regardless of the Box Office intake of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, we will still get Godzilla vs Kong in March 2020.

Only the Box Office potential of that film can we judge if even more monster films will be released in the near future.

The other new releases this week includes the Elton John biopic 'Rocketman' and the movie 'Ma'. These films earned a respectable $25 million and $18 million this weekend respectively. Last week's winner Aladdin did well in its second weekend to earn $41 million.
