US box office top 5 breakdown 23rd - 25th April 2021.

Mortal Kombat

The video game franchise was first brought to the big screen by Paul W.S. Anderson in 1995 in what at the time was a critical champion at the box office and went on to gross $70.4 Million in the US.

26 years later director Simon McQuoid brings us a new interpretation to the big screen and makes its debut with $23.3 Million and gives a true sign, after Godzilla Vs. Kongs fantastic box office run, that things are getting back to pre-pandemic levels.

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.

This weekend the Haruo Sotozaki directed animation got its US debut as was only $2 Million off taking the number 1 spot with a debut gross of £21.14 Million.

The movie is being hailed as a classic and a big box office run could be on the cards.

Godzilla Vs. Kong

The monster face off falls from the top after 3 weeks and lands at number 3 this weekend with $4.29 Million, a drop of 45% from last weekend.

This gives the movie a total gross of $86.6 Million after 3 weeks of release and is the biggest film in the US in 2021 and the biggest film during the pandemic lockdowns.

Nobody

Falling to number 4 this week is the Bob Odenkirk starring movie which takes $1.742 Million, 30% down, for a $21.5 Million total after 5 weeks of release.

Raya and the Last Dragon

Dropping to number 5 this week is the Disney fantasy movie which takes $1.741 Million, down just 9%, for a total of $39.9 Million after 8 weeks of release.

As the pandemic is starting to get under control in much of the world with the agressive distribution of the vaccine many markets are starting to open their cinema door with China still leading the way, and with Russia and Japan still showing good number and this coming weekend many more American states are staring to open up.

This means the global box office is starting to take shape, and although its still heavily lead by Chinese movies this week the new Tom & Jerry: The Movie has done well globally, and next weekend we have the new Disney movie Raya and the Last Dragon hitting cinemas.

  • Number 1 - Hi, Mom (3rd weekend)
  • Highest debut - No new movies
  • Longest run - Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train (20 weeks)
