No way is Toho going to extend the contract 

 

 

this will be the last American Godzilla movie for about 20 years 

I think it's the other way around; Warners will not be interested in extending the contract for a underperforming,expensive franchise.

Make no mistake. TOho needs Warners..or another large studio with deep pockets...a lot more then the big studios need Toho.

Are we sure? Toho seemed pretty reluctant about giving another Hollywood studio a crack at Godzilla after the Roland Emmerich debacle. Do they really need Godzilla to be big in the west?

I wholly enjoyed this movie and it yet again proves to me why Critics, Verified or other, hold no sway for me in what movies I should see. 

 

Great flick!! Underappreciated but hoping for good WOM to carry it through summer. 

Watching Godzilla 2 in 4dx this wed or thurs all

 

..So excited to smell, feel the heat, the wind, water hitting my face and seats that spin and whirl, go side to side all enhance this experience. See it in 4dx especially or Imax if available in your area all...The 4dx reviews of Godzilla 2 are astounding!

But 1998 Godzilla wasn't just the case of Box Office but how they butchered the character of Godzilla & what it it. Remember "They to the God our of Godzilla"

 

And no matter how big flop it is, so far both Monsterverse movies have got Godzilla correctly and showcased Mothra, Rodan & Kimg Ghidorah brilliantly.

Guess I'm happy for this movie being good, and 2014 and hopefully GvK will be good too.

 

But yeah sadly, probably will only have Toho Godzilla movies to look forward to watching. Which I love, don't get me wrong, I own most of them, if  not all, blu ray, but I was hoping to keep the WB ones going too.

Think positive 75live. Wom may propel this film to great numbers yet my friend...Watching it 4dx this week!  Yahoo!

No wonder that cabin in the beginning looked familiar. :lol:

 

And yup, Lexi Rabe did play both Morgan Stark & young MBB.

The Godzilla 3d 4dx showing is absolutely amazing. In some scenes the seats had me inverted and my head facing my feet as we going into one of the bases by copter down through a opening. You feel that drop and feeling in your stomach like your plunging downwards. I may never visit a regular theater again. 4dx is that good!

 

The weather and enviroment effects  and chair movements all state of the art. You felt the snow cold blasts, they use airwind hitting your face and ears and body to simulate flying bullets and objects etc. The seats can also bank hard left or right simulate fast driving over ruff terrain, hitw and punches etc.. Every step by Godzilla and the monsters are felt. A blast of wind hits your face as Godzilla rises , ghidora created storms. Rain wetting you etc. Your blasted with forrest and other scents that fit the movie scenes.  I give the Godzilla 3d 4dx showing a 11 out of 10!!

 

Wish this movie could be seen in this way by everyone.. Wow they even utilized some of the surround 3d techniques..

 

Holy moly. Everyone was cheering and screaming..Godzilla 2 is awesome and 4dx takes the awesome power of big g to times 20. I don't think even amusement simulation park rides are the equal of the 4dx experience. One effect I wish they put on in this showing was heat wave or heat blast would have made it absolutely stellar beyond how great this experience already was.

I enjoyed this on the whole (miles better than that filthy 2014 bait and switch), but first off this thing really needs to come with a seizure warning. I mean geez, the amount of flashing lights in a lot of the scenes was just too much. Yeah they were pretty epic scenes, but also pretty headache inducing. Did Ghidorah really have to constantly be in a thunder storm? Cool in theory, but really hard on the eyes. My other big gripe being that there was still too much time spent with the humans here. They need to either commit to Godzilla movies with a minimal human element or else commit to making fully realized and interesting characters. I was only mildly more interested in the plot and characters than '14. Thankfully though this one had several scenes with the monsters in it that are spectacular. I actually am looking forward to seeing it at home on a smaller screen, where I'm guessing all the flashing and thrashing won't be so hard to look at.

Ok this was great. Destruction porn at its finest. 

 

Human characters were bland but not in an insulting way like the Transformers franchise.  

 

I'm not really into caring about human characters in a Godzilla movie (it would've to be a masterpiece) so this is everything I hoped for.

There was still too much screentime on humans - exactly.

 

And even if they want that, instead of family drama no one cares about, bunch of people together in a group is better way like KSI, a movie focusing only on Monarch people would've been received better than this ridiculous boring family drama.

Guys Im starting to feel a glimmer of hope again for KoTM's box office prospects. Obviously its not going to do the business many of us had hoped for before release, but I think itll do better than people on this forum expected after OW 

 

Looks like DP's tough break is giving KoTM more breathing room than we expected. We're already seeing the benefit of that in China. Both DP and another local film that was expected to do big business are struggling. KoTM is going to take back some of the screens that it lost, and with less competition + holiday, could hold much better than expected!

 

Ill be happy with anything 400m+, and two days ago that seemed impossible. Im thinking solid WOM + less competition could provide KoTM a nice tailwind around the world. After OW I lost motivation to track KoTM's box office but now I feel it again!

I forgot to post this updated list on Monday. Godzilla: King of the Monsters achieved the fourth biggest opening weekend for the month of June, and the biggest opening in June in 11 years.

Biggest June Opening Weekends (1997-)

¥2.223 billion ($18.7 million) / 1,486,743 - The Matrix Reloaded (2003)
¥1.871 billion ($17.3 million) / 1,469,755 - Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)
¥1.005 billion ($9.6 million) / 805,350 - Boys Over Flower: Final (2008)
¥676.9 million ($6.3 million) / 479,000 - Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)
¥624.2 million ($5.2 million) / 416,632 - Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003)
¥603.5 million ($4.9 million) / 447,144 - Live Free or Die Hard (2007)
¥592.1 million ($6.1 million) / 461,866 - Terminator Salvation (2009)
¥580.9 million ($7.4 million) / 426,604 - The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
¥562.6 million ($5.8 million) / 439,993 - Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009)
¥512.2 million ($5.3 million) / 354,852 - Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance (2009)
¥506.2 million ($4.8 million) / 369,119 - The Magic Hour (2008)
¥499.3 million ($4.5 million) / 375,293 - Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)
¥444.8 million ($4.1 million) / 349,950 - Shoplifters (2018)
¥432.0 million ($3.8 million) / 320,000 - Trick 2 (2006)
¥412.9 million ($3.4 million) / 299,000 - 300 (2007)
¥408.8 million ($3.6 million) / 308,600 - Death Note (2006)
¥400.2 million ($3.3 million) / 251,811 - Love Live! The School Idol Movie (2015)


I rarely have to update the June Opening Weekend List (June is one of the weakest months for the box-office in Japan) but this year's has a number of films that could join Godzilla, so I expect to be updating it one or two more times this year. Interestingly though, despite June being a weak month, it's home to the film with the biggest opening weekend of all-time -- The Matrix Reloaded.

It comes from another poster on world of kj. I'm guessing King of Monsters makes $50m in Japan.

Cool thanks Canna.  I'm hoping we can pull off 60m or more.

Oh take a look at the ctrls on the 4dx seats. I wonder who would want to turn anything off.  I'm thinking China can reach over 200m usd
