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.


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.

It was the SuperBowl in America this last weekend and traditionally the box office suffered, but in the current COVID-19 climate it was worse than normal.

Top of the box office was once again The Little Things and with no new films inside the top 10 the top 5 movies once again just jumped around a bit.

The highest new movie of the week is Earwig And The Witch which entered at number 12 although there was a re-release of The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring which entered at number 8.

The Little Things

Starring a powerhouse of Denzel Washington, Rami Malek and Jared Leto the murder mystery makes its debut at the top of the box office with $4.8 Million.

Not a bad debut for a movie during the COVID-19 pandemic with many cinemas closed, but clearly a lower debut than normal for all 3 leads.

This weekend the movie took $1.84 Millon wich it 2% up from last week, the total for the movie after 10 weeks is $43.9 Million.

Wonder Woman 1984

The movie has takes $1.3 Million this weekend, down 19% from last weekend, for a $39.2 Million total after 6 weeks.

The Marksman
