Perhaps the only thing better than one tentpole that opens above $80 million in North America, and $180 million worldwide in a single month, is two. Legendary and Warner Bros. began March with a bang, courtesy of Dune: Part Two ($82.5 million domestic, $181 million worldwide) and ended the month with Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire ($80 million domestic, $195 million worldwide). The films were shots in the arm for a puttering 2024 theatrical industry after two months of smaller-scale releases. 

After all, only nine Hollywood films have passed the $300 million threshold worldwide since #Barbenheimer in mid-July. Of those films—including Godzilla x Kongsix were Warners releases. And say what you will about David Zaslav, currently the most antagonized C.E.O. in Hollywood, with a stock price down 25 percent this year, but Warner Bros. Discovery is crushing its Hollywood rivals in raw box office revenue right now. Warners releases, also including Wonka ($85.2 million) and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom ($48 million), account for $465 million, or 29 percent, of the total $1.612 billion year-to-date domestic box office revenue.
