Kong Powers Through Logan at the Box Office

Kong: Skull Island has claimed victory at the box office, earning $61 million and the top spot in its opening weekend. That well exceeds projections, which had Kong: Skull Island making between $45 million and $50 million in its first three days.

 The total still isn’t enough top Logan‘s opening weekend take of $88.4 million, which remains the best of 2017 so far. Kong: Skull Island also has a considerably higher budget to make up for, coming in at $185 million compared to Logan‘s $97 million. Logan is also R-rated, which means some younger viewers who may be interested in seeing Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine will have to wait until the film is available on home media.

In its second weekend at the box office, Logan dropped 58% to earn $37.8 million. That puts Logan‘s domestic box office total at about $152.6 million.
Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ Kong: Skull Island reimagines the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) In the film, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific – as beautiful as it is treacherous – unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.
