Godzilla vs. Kong was a major success for HBO Max with reported numbers putting it ahead of Zack Snyder’s Justice League and Wonder Woman 1984 in views.
Last week, Godzilla vs. Kong became the latest blockbuster to hit both HBO Max and theaters with the studio’s new pandemic release strategy for 2021. The new release strategy used by Warner Bros. has prompted some questions as to how success will be measured based on a film’s performance if so many are watching from home with an HBO Max subscription. So far, Godzilla vs. Kong already looks like a success based on the $48.1M grossed in domestic theaters, which is the most for a debut during the pandemic.
Now Samba TV shared 3.6M households watched at least five minutes of Godzilla vs. Kong over its first five days on HBO Max as well. Godzilla vs. Kong‘s numbers beat Wonder Woman 1984‘s 2.2M over Christmas weekend and Zack Snyder’s Justice League‘s 1.8M in its first four days. The next major film to hit HBO Max will be Mortal Kombat on April 23.

Here’s the official synopsis for Godzilla vs. Kong:
“Legends collide in “Godzilla vs Kong” as these mythic adversaries meet in a spectacular battle for the ages, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe. The epic clash between the two titans—instigated by unseen forces—is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth.”
