If you were wondering how things were going to shake out in Legendary’s Monsterverse, look no further than Kong: Skull Island. The film is the second entry in the verse, following along behind Godzilla. The King of the Apes was able to take in the #1 spot this weekend and knock last week’s winner, Logan, down to #2.
The film had a budget of more than $150 million and was able to come in the top spot at the Box Office with $61 million in revenue. It still has to open up in China, but that’s a pretty solid opening weekend. Logan only dropped down 60% and has grossed over $120 million domestically. The rest of the Top Ten is below.
1. Kong: Skull Island $61 million
2. Logan $37.9 million
3. Get Out $21.1 million
4. The Shack $10.1 million
5. The LEGO Batman Movie $7.8 million
6. Before I Fall $3.1 million
7. Hidden Figures $2.8 million
8. John Wick: Chapter Two $2.7 million
9. MET Opera: La Traviata $1.8 million
10. La La Land $1.8 million
Next week, things are really going to shake up as we have the live action Beauty and the Beast hitting the big screen. This will ultimately prove if Kong can hold up at the Box Office or fall by the jungle-side. Find out what happens in the next edition of Weekend Roundup!
