Looks quality.


I mean I'll definitely watch it, it's not like the original was known for the incredible quality of acting or storyline. This looks fun enough.

BBC News - Godzilla Vs. Kong reports monster box office sales

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-56641846

Hollywood film Godzilla Vs. Kong has set a new global record for pandemic-era filmgoing,
Takings have been more than $385m (£205m) since opening two weeks ago.
The strong showing came despite continued limits on attendance in many places, bringing hope to an industry that has been battered by the virus.
The $48.5m the film brought in during its first five days in the US outpaced the weekend debut of the Godzilla franchise's previous film.
Overall, the film has made more than $236m outside the US, although it has yet to open in some key markets, such as Japan, Brazil and many parts of western Europe. More than half the sales were in China.
"The numbers don't lie - it's clear that wherever audiences are ready to safely return to the theatre, they have, and we're thrilled with the results," said Jeff Goldstein, president of domestic distribution for producer Warner Bros, which provided the figures with co-producer Legendary Entertainment.
Cinema-operators also cheered the performance at the box office, despite the film being available for streaming on the HBO Max service.


This is fantastic news for the cinema industry.

I'm going to go to the cinema when it opens as I think some films just are better at the cinema.
Bond, Surge, Voyagers, Top Gun, The Green Knight, Free Guy, Infinite and most importantly DUNE will all get the cinema treatment from me.

I didn't like that. I haven't seen the minions, which they're obviously ripped off from, but to me it just felt like a soulless rip off of Evil Dead's slapstick.

The real question is, is the first one going to be canon?
