'Godzilla: King of the Monsters' debuts with mediocre $49 million


'Godzilla: King of the Monsters' knocked off 'Aladdin' from the top of the US box-office over the weekend.

Warner Bros' monster sequel brought in $49 million when it debuted in 4,108 locations.

It, however, fell short of its $50-55 million projected opening.

It also didn't match up to 2014's Godzilla, which brought in $93.1 million, or the other big monster franchise Kong: Skull Island, which had a $61 million opening.

It's a disappointing start given its $200 million price tag.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters bowed with $130 million at the international box-office for a global opening weekend of $179 million.
