‘Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire” roars to an $80 million box office opening

'Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire' garners an impressive $80 million in its opening weekend, securing the second highest opening of the year.

The movie, a collaboration between Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures featuring Rebecca Hall and Brian Tyree Henry, exceeded expectations by achieving an $80 million debut on 3,861 North American screens. Initially projected at $50 million, it underlines a strong start despite previous predictions, landing just short of 'Dune: Part 2's $81.5 million opening, making it the second highest opening in a robust year for the box office.
