As per the publication, 3.6 million households viewed at least the opening five minutes of the movie in its first five days, according to third-party streaming rating company Samba TV.

Godzilla vs. Kong is now the third highest-grossing movie of 2021, and the top Western picture on that chart. Hi, Mom (2021) and Detective Chinaman 3 (2020) are the two leading Chinese films, with grosses of $821 million and $688 million, respectively, eclipsing Godzilla vs. Kong‘s $300 million.
Warner has announced that, at least for the duration of 2021, virtually all of its titles will be broadcast in theaters and on HBO Max simultaneously, much to the controversy surrounding this decision.
