Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire continues to deliver for Warner Bros. Discovery and Legendary Pictures at the box office.

Over the weekend, the film added another $15.5 million domestically and $33.7 million internationally, for a $49.2 million global weekend gross.

The film now stands at $436.6 million worldwide.

The New Empire has an incredibly modest production budget of just $135 million, meaning that it has already surpassed its break-even point (roughly $400 million) when accounting for P&A and revenue split with theater owners.

Godzilla fans are now wondering how long they'll have to wait before Legendary and WB officially announce that a sequel is in the works. It was a full year before it was officially announced that Godzilla vs Kong would be receiving a sequel.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire is directed by Adam Wingard (Godzilla vs Kong), with screenplay credits possessed by Terry Rossio, Simon Barrett, and Jeremy Slater.

The film will see Rebecca Hall return as Dr. Ilene Andrews, alongside Brian Tyree Henry's  Bernie Hayes. Dan Stevens is set to play the lead. Rounding out the cast are Kaylee Hottle, Fala Chen, Alex Ferns, and Rachel House.

Millie Bobby Brown's Madison Russell is not returning for this installment after serving as the lead character in Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Godzilla vs Kong. Legendary sought Brown's return but the actress had scheduling conflicts due to her filming commitment on Anthony and Joe Russo's The Electric State.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire is set to be released in North American theaters on March 29, 2024.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire Synopsis:
