Picking up, US$7.5 million, Kong: Skull Island was the hottest thing in the Korea box office this weekend.
"Kong: Skull Island", from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, pulled in an estimated $61 million in the USA and Canada, performing well above expectations of $45 million to $50 million. Peter Jackson's 2005 remake of RKO's 1933 hit, King Kong, was a box office record-breaker 11 years ago and fingers will be crossed that Chinese audiences are ready to go wild for more ape action.
With a $21 million intake bringing its total grosses to $111.1 million, "Get Out" is a Hollywood success story through and through.
These include shots from the helicopter attack near the film's start, shots of Kong looming large over Skull Island's scenery and scenes from a late action scene involving a mass monster grave, some poisonous gas and a slow-motion Tom Hiddleston.
Kong, which cost an estimated $185 to produce, also performed well overseas bringing in $81.6 million. "Kong: Skull Island" and "Logan" are both high-profile, effects-heavy blockbuster hopefuls, and now Disney's "Beauty and the Beast", which is expected to do extremely well financially, will arrive on March 17. That will likely suck up most of the oxygen in the multiplexes, making it hard for other films to keep drawing in big crowds. The film is the second installment in a planned monster franchise. Actually, no. Not if you compare it to the $93 million that Godzilla made in its opening weekend in 2014.
"Kong: Skull Island" is also at an advantage against "Logan" because the competitor is R-rated and this has prohibited young viewers from being able to watch it until it becomes available for home media.
"Since the classic version of King Kong in 1933, with Fay Wray, this tale of the lovely and the beast fascinates the public and continues to inspire filmmakers over the decades", notes Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst at comScore. The film ultimately collected $529 Million worldwide against the production budget of $160 million.
With Wolvie and Kong duking it out, Blumhouse and Universal's "Get Out" snagged third place. And rounding out the top five were holdovers The Shack with $18-million and The LEGO Batman Movie with $8-million.
