‘Godzilla X Kong’ Squashes ‘Monkey Man’ At Box Office

Godzilla X Kong

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire dominated the box office this weekend, as Monkey Man and The First Omen both opened behind expectations.

Godzilla, from filmmaker Adam Wingard, is proving to be a significant victory for Josh Grode’s Legendary Pictures on the heels of Dune: Part Two, which is the top-grossing film of the year to date with $660.7 million in global ticket sales through Sunday. And Godzilla is also a big win for Warner Bros. and Legendary’s MonsterVerse series, at a time when many franchises are struggling to remain fresh.

The top 12 movies of the weekend, as of Sunday, April 7, are as follows:
