After three days of release the new Godzilla film has obviously found an enthusiastic audience generating $93 million plus change in gross sales within the US, $38 million of that was on opening day! The film sat high in the number one weekend spot knocking Bad Neighbours down to number two.
What does this mean for Godzilla? You guessed it, with such a strong opening weekend a sequel has already been announced. Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. are moving right ahead with the next film, Gareth Edwards has previously commented on his likely approach if he directs a sequel which would be similar to the first film in that the creatures themselves are kept off screen for significant portions of the film, building up towards dramatic reveals and action sequences in the third act.
So if the new Godzilla film is to your liking, you’ve got plenty more monster action to look forward to!
