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.

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