Warner Bros. and HBO Max have moved a couple more movies around and one of them is looking like it could be huge for the service. In the three days since the trailer for Godzilla vs. Kong dropped, it has racked up 34 million views on youtube alone. The buzz for this movie went from almost nothing to massive with the release of one trailer which about the best that a company can hope for when it comes to releases. The hype must be good because they have decided to delay the movie five days to give it an even better chance at the box office. According to Deadline, Warner Bros. has decided to move Godzilla vs. Kong from March 26th to March 31st to give it a better chance at doing well over the Easter weekend.
Warner Bros. and HBO Max didn't just move Godzilla vs. Kong but they also dated a movie as well. The new James Wan horror Maginent has also been dated for September 10th. Warner Bros. horror movies tend to do well at the beginning of September but we don't know anything about this movie yet aside from it being billed as "Wan's return to his roots with this new original horror thriller." We will find out more this summer.
