In a manner befitting the most massive, and well-known, Kaiju in monster history, Godzilla Resurgence has stormed the boards to become the number one movie in Japan. The flick debuted at #1 last weekend, earning nearly $7 million at the box office, across 441 screens, according to figures from Box Office Mojo.
At the time of writing, the movie has earned a reported $8,289,311 in its home country, meaning it’s well on its way to not only matching the $29,930,046 total gross of 2014’s Godzilla, but maybe even outdoing it completely.
Godzilla Resurgence is due for release in the States later this year. Stay tuned to Wicked Horror for more info as it becomes available.
