Godzilla: King of the Monsters is King of the Box Office with $49 million Debut

The monster pic, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, took the top spot this weekend ($49 million)... though, a little bit under analyst expectations. This is probably due to the downtrending critic reviews (currently 39% Tomatometer).  It also ranks third (out of three) in Warner Bros' supposed monster universe which includes Godzilla 2014 ($93 million) and Kong: Skull Island ($61 million). Despite its underwhelming domestic take, King of the Monsters made a hefty $130 million overseas for a total of $179 million worldwide.

Last weeks number one, Aladdin, settled for second place with $42.3 million, bringing its total to $185 million and its worldwide total to $445.9 million.

The Elton John biopic, Rocketman, came in 3rd with $25 million, and the thriller, Ma, came in 4th with $18.3 million.

In other news, Avengers: Endgame climbs a little bit ($7.8 million) to $815.5 million. And now has a grossed $2.713 billion worldwide.  It seems more and more likely that it'll stay in second place in both the domestic and worldwide box office totals for a while.
