Mortal Kombat~2020

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.
