Godzilla: King Of The Monsters
Maybe the reception was a little more muted than Warner Bros. would have liked but Godzilla: King Of The Monsters still makes its debut at number 1 on the US box office.

Rocketman

Godzilla: King Of The Monsters

The sequel to 2014's Godzilla hits the US box office at the top with a weekend gross of $49 million which compared to the original is nearly half its $93 million debut.

Warner have big plans for the monster series and this is maybe a warning shot that the western movie fan is not as interested as those in China for example where the film had a monster opening.

The film is also lower than 2017's Kong: Skull Island and with a Kong and Godzilla matchup coming in 2020 there are warning signs.

Aladdin

Disneys live action remake starring Will Smith falls to number 2 this week with $42.3 million which gives the film a $185 million total gross after 2 weeks.

Rocketman

Making its debut at number 3 this week is the Elton John bio-pic which takes a respectable $25 million.

The films cinema run will be compared to Bohemian Rhapsody, although this film has debuted far lower than the Freddy Mercury film despite having better reviews.

Dumbo

Ma

Starring Octavia Spencer this suspense horror makes its debut at number 4 with a fairly muted $18.2 million opening.

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

Falling to the number 5 spot after 3 weeks of release is the Keanu Reeves action films which takes $11.1 million for a $125.7 million total.

Avengers: Endgame

The Marvel movie is the top total gross film on the US box office this week and after 6 weeks has taken an incredible $815.5 million.
