The movie has been much hyped and favourable reviews have helped the movie, and nothing else in competition will have given the movie a boost on its debut.

Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train

Having been released in its native country of China in October 2020 the movie was delayed because tof the pandemic in the rest of the world, and with a gross of $375 Million to date the movie has made an enormous impact.
