It was a good Friday for Godzilla vs King because the collections stayed well still with 4.22 crores entering. Although this may appear to be a drop from Wednesday (6.40 crore) and thursday (5.40 crores), the fact remains that we are still on weekdays and the weekend is still to come. In fact, it can also happen that the figures for Saturday and Sunday are on the same lines as Friday. However, even then there won’t be many complaints as it would still be better than the first day of any Bollywood or Hollywood movie released in the past year.
The monster universe movie gathered 16.02 crore So far and although Day 1 has indicated that an extended 30 crore weekend is a no-brainer, it looks like we’d have to settle for 25 crore with some sort of chance of hitting the 28 crore mark. crores. No one would complain the top performing movie since lockdown, Roohi, has come together 22 crores and Godzilla vs Kong would comfortably exceed that number in five days.
Of course, if there had been regular days, the industry would have looked at this hunted and abandoned VFX business to do business in the range of 60-80 crore. However, in the current uncertain times, it would be interesting to see where it ends up.
Note: all collections according to production and distribution sources
