Kong: Skull Island continues to reign at the box office.
The Warner Bros. monster movie rose to $72.8-Million yesterday here in North America thanks to an additional $11-8-Million across Monday ($5.4-Million) and Tuesday ($6.4-Million). No doubt, these numbers have been aided by the fact that March Break is now in full swing, with many students and families heading out to the theater during this time off.
Overseas, the movie currently sits at $85.1-Million.
Thus, the film's global tally totals just over $157-Million.
Heading into its second weekend in circulation, Kong: Skull Island faces some stiff competition from Disney's live-action take on Beauty And The Beast, which opens tomorrow night.
Jordan Vogt-Roberts directs the new monster movie, which is set in 1973 at the end of the Vietnam War. The film is the second entry in the Warner Bros. MonsterVerse, which also includes Gareth Edwards' Godzilla. The studio is hoping to build a successful franchise around these classic monsters, which will culminate with Godzilla vs. King Kong in 2020.
Starring Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John C. Reilly, Toby Kebbell, Corey Hawkins, John Ortiz, and John Goodman, Kong: Skull Island is in theatres now.
