‘Godzilla x Kong’ Continues Dominate at Box Office, Outpaces ‘The First Omen’ and ‘Monkey Man’


Key Takeaways:
– Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire predicted to retain top box office spot.
– The First Omen and Monkey Man released, set to claim second and third places respectively.
– Godzilla x Kong possibly to conclude North American run with a box office total around $200 million.
– The Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire’s steady decline might lead to it being surpassed by Dune: Part Two.

The latest weekend brought the release of two much-hyped, albeit smaller-scale genre films. Dev Patel’s directorial action feat, Monkey Man, and 20th Century Studios’ prequel to a classic movie series, The First Omen. Despite reeling in good reviews, neither appears capable of unseating Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire from the box office’s top spot.

Unstoppable Streak of Godzilla x Kong

Who would have predicted such an explosive opening for Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire? The Easter long weekend no doubt contributed to its skyrocketing success. Though this weekend’s haul is projected to hit only around $25 million, it’s still uncontested in its reigning position. The movie seems on track to wrap its North American run in the vicinity of $200 million. While it might not sustain momentum like Dune: Part Two, the dueling giants could stun us with a weekend gross surpassing $30 million.

Expected Runners-Up: The First Omen and Monkey Man

With no significant horror release since Imaginary’s disappointing March debut, The First Omen is expected to claim the second spot. Earlier indie successes, Immaculate and Late Night With the Devil, catered to a niche audience, but it seems The First Omen could eclipse them with an estimated $15 million.

Monkey Man, directed and headlined by Dev Patel, is likely to trail in third place with an expected $12 million. As this is Patel’s maiden foray into arthouse action directing, the film’s success really could go either way.

Ghostbusters and Dune Fight to Stay in Top Five

Meanwhile, holdovers Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire and Dune: Part Two are predicted to round out the top five. Unfortunately, the spell seems to be wearing off for Frozen Empire, projected to earn just $7.5 million this weekend. Trailing behind at $5 million is Dune: Part Two, which might just pip Frozen Empire to the post—a significant blow to the latter.

Summarized Predictions:
– Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire – $25 million
– The First Omen – $15 million
– Monkey Man – $12 million
– Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire – $7.5 million
– Dune: Part Two – $5 million
