Peter Rabbit 2 and Godzilla v Kong are now running neck and neck on the weekend take with around $3.3m, though Peter Rabbit has nearly 100 more screens. However, after week three, the reptile vs fur showdown is on $20m while the bunny has taken $12m. Carrot wars will never compete with giant monsters spewing fire and stomping cities.
In 2018, the first Peter Rabbit was on $2.9m in its third weekend, so it is doing slightly better this time round. It went on to make $26.8m in Australia and AU$460m around the world. It has a long way to go but the baby steps head towards the pot of gold.
