Godzilla Opening Weekend Box Office Could Hit $70 Million


is likely to have an opening weekend gross in the $60-65 million range, possibly reaching the $70 million mark, according to Deadline. Godzilla's performance in tonight's early release showings will likely be indicative of its performance over the weekend. If the film does at least $6 million tonight, then it is more likely to reach the $70 million mark over the weekend. Early ticket pre-sales suggest that Godzilla may do just that. "We are selling twice as many tickets as we sold in the same point of the sales cycle of Pacific Rim," said Fandango's Harry Medved. About 91 per cent of ticket pre-sales for this weekend are being purchased for showings of Godzilla. In Godzilla, the world's most famous monster is pitted against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence. Godzilla officially opens in theaters May 16.
