    I’ve waited my whole life.

    Covid be damned I will see this in a theatre.

    I’ve heard a lot of rumors about the plot they all pretty much say the same thing.

    China Box Office: ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Crushes With $70 Million Debut

    https://variety.com/2021/film/news/china-box-office-godzilla-vs-kong-opening-weekend-1234939779/

    Even though Chinese consumers are arduously calling for a boycott of Western brands concerned about potential human rights abuses in the country’s Xinjiang region, they apparently had no qualms about supporting Hollywood.

    Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment’s “Godzilla vs. Kong” crushed its competitors in China this weekend with a $70 million debut, marking the biggest premiere for a foreign title in both 2020 and 2021. Its sales marked 82% of the weekend market share, coming from 42,000 screens and more than 11.8 million admissions.

    Its $20.9 million (RMB137 million) opening day was also the biggest for a foreign film in the same period — more than double Tenet’s $8.7 million (RMB57 million) first day last September, the previous record-holder. “Tenet” had grossed $30 million in its first China weekend.

    “Godzilla vs. Kong” is also now the foreign film with the most opening day pre-sales since cinemas shuttered due to COVID, having sold $6.88 million (RMB45 million) in tickets before its debut. It again beat out “Tenet,” which had previously been the champion with pre-sales of $3.44 million (RMB22.5 million).

    China sales for the fourth film in Legendary’s “MonsterVerse” played a major role in boosting Imax to its biggest world-wide box office weekend since the start of the pandemic, with $12.4 million in global sales across 40 international markets.

    You get 20 tickets for it so it's actual not too bad if you have a group for it or do it as like your kid's bday party.

    How many people could you include in that screening if you wanted to share the cost?

    that I totally get. Actually just gave me an idea for my own bday this year where now I’m thinking about renting out a theater for TOP GUN 2 and inviting 10 friends who will all be dying to see it.

    spending 300 bucks to see it alone? Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
