Warner Bros. Godzilla: King of the Monsters struggled in its second week at the domestic box office. The movie fell an estimated -67.5% from its opening weekend, grossing only $15.5m.
That brings the domestic total for the sequel to $78.6m. That -67.5% drop is fractionally larger than the -67% drop of its 2014 predecessor. At this stage the movie may struggle to reach $100m in its home market.
Internationally King of the Monsters fared a little better. In it’s second weekend in the majority of markets the movie grossed a further $47.1m bringing its international tally to $213.7m.
Globally the monster movie mashup is currently sitting at $292m.

Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Directed by Michael Dougherty, the sequel stars Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown and Charles Dance.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters is in cinemas now.
