Need I remind people that Godzilla (2014) opened with $93 million, far outpacing Kong's $61 million. That shows that the potential for huge success based on Godzilla IS very possible, because it already happened. KOTM is simply suffering the consequences of the general audiences' reaction to 2014 - not to mention the marketing was honestly, meh. There were absolutely no character moments or interesting dialogue in any promotional material for KOTM, unlike 2014. They instead marketed it as your average, popcorn blockbuster with incredibly awful dialogue in every trailer/tv spot and I honestly don't understand why. Seriously, what was their obsession with "My God...zilla, that's messed up, damn right"? It was baffling. Let's just all hope and pray that Godzilla vs Kong's marketing is far superior and doesn't have any of those one liners (terrible ones), in the marketing or in the film itself.
Ehh, I wouldn`t take so much issue with Kong being the bigger star. To be quite honest, he is, and no one ever denied that really. Kong is the OG. I have a strong feeling Godzilla vs. Kong will be moderately succuessful and theyll just make a second Kong film with maybe some Toho monsters cameoing (a badass remake of the original draft of Godzilla vs. the SeaMonster anyone?
