The much-talked action flick, Godzilla vs. Kong has been Preponed. The film which is releasing in the USA on March 31, will hit Indian theatres on March 24.
According to a recent report Warner Bros India has decided to prepone the release by 2 days of its original plan. A source was quoted as saying, “ So instead of March 26, it’ll now have a mid-week release on Wednesday, March 24.”
The source also revealed that it will be a full-fledged release from Wednesday morning. The film will be releasing in two languages English original and dubbed versions.
Interestingly, Godzilla vs. Kong is also scheduled to release on March 24 in most European countries and Taiwan.
A trade expert was quoted by a daily as saying, “This is a good decision taken by Warner Bros India. Godzilla vs. Kong would now get more time to score and earn money at the box office. Although Sooryavanshi has vacated the April 2 date, some exciting Hindi film is sure to grab the slot. So Godzilla vs. Kong would get two additional days to rake in the moolah. It would also have the advantage of a holiday on Monday March 29. In short, it’s going to enjoy a six-day weekend of sorts.”
The trade source further says, “The team of the film just need to make sure they get sufficient shows in most theatres, without disturbing the playing programme of Mumbai Saga, which releases on March 19. Just like Godzilla vs. Kong, the John Abraham-Emraan Hashmi starrer also targets the mass audience.”
Godzilla vs. Kong is the fourth part in Legendary’s MonsterVerse series, after Godzilla (2014), Kong: Skull Island (2017) and Godzilla: King Of The Monsters (2019).
