5 Reasons Godzilla X Kong Obliterated The Box Office


Even beyond opening weekend, the film’s prospects are quite good. That’s because word of mouth from moviegoers has been nothing shy of stellar. “Godzilla x Kong” managed an A- CinemaScore, and that remains one of the best metrics to determine whether or not people will continue to show up for a given movie beyond its first frame. Critics were more mixed on the film, as it currently holds a 55% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. That said, the audience rating is a stellar 92%, and the critics who liked it truly seemed to enjoy it. Critical approval is never a bad thing, but audiences are the ones who buy tickets, and their opinion matters most when it comes to the box office.

/Film’s Witney Seibold fell into the camp of liking the movie, and you can read his “Godzilla x Kong” review right here. The fact of the matter is that critics and audiences are going to disagree from time to time. But this isn’t a “Venom” situation where many critics seemed to hate it. Rather, it was just that some people were buying the silliness that this movie was selling, and others just couldn’t get into it. It was more of a taste issue for individual viewers when examined through a critical lens. Most viewers got what they paid for, and their expectations were in line with what Wingard delivered.
