    + Foreign: $275,400,000 71.4%
    = Worldwide: $385,842,744

    Kong: Skull Island (2017)
    Domestic: $168,052,812 29.7%
    + Foreign: $398,600,000 70.3%
    = Worldwide: $566,652,812

    That’s why King Kong should defeat Godzilla when they match up...

    Or... hear me out...

    Kong made $566.7M.
    With Godzilla (2014) and Kind of the Monsters, Godzilla made $914.9M.

    "No fair, you are comparing two movies to one," you might rightly say. To which I would point out, what would even be the Kong sequel without Godzilla?!? Clearly, Godzilla is the stronger monster / franchise.

    You’ll see...
    Kong is still just a giant ape. Has to eat, sleep, gets tired, etc. Godzilla is an atomic fire breathing indestructible armored walking nuclear reactor whose cells constantly regenerate. I'm sure the writers can come up with some kind of electric Kong style McGuffin to power Kong up because otherwise the movie would last about 10 seconds when Godzilla lets loose his atomic fire and blasts Kong's head clean off.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    King Kong (2005)
    Domestic: $218,080,025 39.6%
    + Foreign: $332,437,332 60.4%
    = Worldwide: $550,517,357

    King Kong and Kong Skull Island = $1.1 billion. And that’s not even adjusting the 2005 Kong to inflation.

    Sure, there are more Godzilla films...but pound for pound, Kong is King.

    Ha! So you do admit the writers would have to cheat and Godzilla is more powerful.

    Take out Godzilla’s atomic breath...and he’s got nothing.

    Imagine Godzilla’s T-Rex arms going toe-to-toe with Kong’s massive hands, forearms, biceps, and shoulders...

    KO, baby!!!!!!
