‘Godzilla Minus One’ Movie (2023)

Famous monster franchise Japan, returns with an appetite for destruction but also a notably sober outlook.

After making $11.5 million on Friday, including $5 million in Thursday previews, the movie only brought in an estimated $21 million to lead the weekend, which must seem like a disappointment compared to Swift’s film. Even so, audiences loved it, giving it an “A+” on CinemaScore, same as “The Eras Tour,” although one presumes anyone who went to see either movie was already a fan. “Renaissance” made another $6.4 million overseas for a global opening of $27.4 million.

Once again, Japan emerges from World War II only to face this atomic colossus, whose appetite for destruction remains unabated and a reliable spectacle.

They’re a nuclear family, as it were, but remain unmarried, simply co-survivors. Koichi’s camaraderie with crew members on a mine cleanup ship lightens the mood, but soon Godzilla rears his leathery head again with attacks on ships, streets and the people unfortunate enough to be there.
