Shin Godzilla (Godzilla Resurgence) is doing something that the last Toho Godzilla production didn't: it is cleaning up at the Japanese box office.
The recently released Godzilla Resurgence has earned 2.1 billion yen in its first two weeks in Japan.
That’s equivalent to around $20.51 million and the film is projected to make around 40 billion yen at the Japanese box office (or approximately $39 million).
For a Japanese domestic release these are very good numbers indeed and if this continues on Godzilla Resurgence will easily outpace the Japanese earnings for the 2014 version of Godzilla.
