I still can’t help but to think that G:KOTM was still also hurt by the time in between G’14 and G:KOTM. I mean, even though we got K:SI in between, we’re still talking about a five year gap between movies. I just think that the Godzilla movies should’ve been released in a shorter time frame while it was still kinda fresh in some of the consumers heads. As mentioned above, we’ll get KvsG, be happy that we’re getting that, the US Godzilla movies will come to an end, then Toho will take over Godzilla again.

WB & Legendary should have done more to impress on audiences that K:SI was in the same universe as G'14. I imagine the average moviegoer probably thinks G:KOTM is the second Monsterverse movie rather than the third.

Looking back, it may have been better if the advertising treated K:SI as a sequel to G'14; use a trailer to hype up Kong as an eventual challenger to Godzilla as the king of monsters (maybe even make that the core of the advertising campaign).

what path will G vs Kong follow in its advertisement campaign?

That line-up actually looks quite worrying. The Pixar movie doesn't look like anything special, but how often do Pixar's "what if X were like normal people?" formula movies flop? A Quiet Place 2 will probably be a solid performer for at least a couple of weeks, and then Mulan may well kill any chance GvK has of developing legs.

I don't think Godzilla: King of the Monsters was sunk by box office competition. Aladdin is a big and leggy hit, with a $116m Memorial Day opening weekend toward $331 domestic and counting, but it's got nothing on 2017's Beauty and the Beast. That movie opened to $174m the week AFTER Kong: Skull Island and that still didn't stop K:SI from dropping a solid -54.4% that weekend. Compare that to G:KotM's -67.7% second-weekend plunge while Dark Phoenix debuted to just $32m.

March 2017 had Logan, Kong: Skull Island and Beauty and the Beast opening back-to-back-to-back and all three saw their best-case scenario box office results. Conversely, in May/June 2019 we had Aladdin, Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Dark Phoenix open consecutively and only one of them had a best-case reception. It really comes down to how many people want to see the movies in question.

Given the very un-leggy track record of Legendary's Godzilla movies and the very un-leggy history of crossover films like Freddy vs. Jason, Alien vs. Predator and Batman v Superman, it's unlikely that Godzilla vs. Kong will be any leggier no matter what opens in its wake. It needs to open significantly bigger than K:SI and especially G:KotM to have a shot at recouping its costs theatrically. I hope WB isn't in the process of making the movie more expensive right now.

Frankenstein meets the Wolfman (1943) was the *original* monster crossover, and something Universal hoped to build towards in their, now defunct *Dark Universe*

Other large Franchise crossovers people have wanted, that we got were:

Freddy vs Jason: Was financially successful, even if a critical failure. It probably should have happened about a decade earlier.
Alien vs. Predator Pretty much the same. Both films (even the sequel) did well financially, it was just their overall negative reaction by fans & critics that prevented further sequels. Again IMHO this also occurred about a decade too late.

Robocop vs Terminator, never made the leap form comics to film. At this point, I'm sure fans of BOTH franchises probably feel that was for the best.

King Kong vs Godzilla or/ Godzilla vs Kong This to me is different. Both characters have come in and out of the public's awareness many times over the decades. (Not just a product of the 80's/90's and got films too late) Also, unlike all those other franchises, this one is getting a far larger budget. I know we as Kaiju fans have been awaiting this for a long time, and up until...2016 or so...(Whenever LP/WB made the deal with Universal to get the rights to Kong), we never thought would happen again.

I'm going to enjoy it for all it's worth. Personally I thought KotM was a great film, and thought would have much more mass audience appeal, but I was wrong. I have little reason to believe General Audience reaction will be much different next year, but I hope I'm wrong.

Although it's nice to know fictional characters like this are seemingly timeless. Also I now we cant compare real life people to fictional characters, but I remember in the 80's when Hulk Hogan was dominating the WWF, and Ric Flair was dominating the NWA. Playground fantasy discussions about these two clashing were epic. Too bad when it finally happened in the late 90's, it was again, a case of a decade too late. :wink:

It looks like Godzilla: King of the Monsters may have hit the second-run theaters . After losing venues quickly week after week, its theater count increased by 20 and its weekend gross grew +32.4% from the previous weekend. It's nothing that will change the movie's box office fortunes but if you live near a second-run theater, now might be your chance to catch Godzilla, Ghidorah, Mothra and Rodan on the big screen one more time.

I can confirm it hit my local Mall $4 theater this past Friday. I asked my son if he wanted to see it one more time...he was content to wait for the BRD
