The production company behind Legendary Entertainment, “Godzilla vs. Kong”, recently engaged publicly with Warner Bruce, threatening that the studio would legalize the decision to send all of its 2021 films to HBO Max on the same day. Threatened to take action In the theater Legendary was disappointed, as Warner Bros. had earlier partially blocked Netflix’s 250 250 million bid to buy the monster movie. However, the two companies have reportedly escalated frustrations and agreed on a release strategy that has satisfied both sides.
The “Godzilla vs. Kong” price tag is approximately 160 160 million, which means that the sci-fi action adventure will struggle to make a profit based on ticket sales only. Asian countries can benefit from savings, as monster movies are popular abroad. In addition, HBO Max is only available in the United States, so the international audience will not have to discuss whether to play the movie at home or on the big screen.
Warner Bruce first tested his hybrid rollout project at “Wonder Woman 1984” last December. The superhero sequel has grossed 13 2,132 million globally so far. This may be a strong result in terms of epidemics, but it is a disappointing result for the film, which will cost 200 200 million to produce and many, millions of people marketed around the world.
Adam Vanguard directed the fourth entry into the legendary monster universe, “Godzilla vs. Kong,” after 2004’s “Godzilla”, 2017’s “Kang: Skull Island” and 2019’s “Godzilla: King of Demons”. Upcoming crossover events – featuring Alexander Scarsgard, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall and Brian Tyree Henry – pit other global giants against each other in an epic battle.
