/box office

Last weekend marked the release of the highly anticipated Mortal Kombat from Warner Bros. The violent reboot of the video-game classic franchise grossed an impressive pandemic total of $23.3M. With a further $27.6M  added from international markets the worldwide total now sits at over $50M. In its first weekend Mortal Kombat shot straight to the top of the domestic box office with its second highest weekend performance of the pandemic, behind only Godzilla vs Kong.

The second best performing film release this week was anime film Demon Slayer which already qualifies as a box-office juggernaut—especially in the anime-friendly territory of Japan, where it has become the country’s highest-grossing movie of all time. To date, Demon Slayer has accumulated $388.2M internationally, which combined with its North American numbers puts it just past the $400M milestone with $407.7M.

In third place was the epic monster mash-up of Godzilla vs Kong. The film added $4.2M from the domestic box office taking its worldwide total over the $400M mark. Universal Pictures release Nobody followed up in 4th grossing just under $1.9M its fifth weekend. Worldwide the film has now grossed a little over $38M.

Rounding out the top 5 was Disney’s latest animated release Raya and The Last Dragon taking under $1.7 million domestically, falling -12.6% from the previous weekend. Despite also being available as a premium VOD rental on the Disney+ streaming platform for a $30 fee, the film had a $923 per-screen average in 1,819 theaters, bringing its domestic box-office total to $39.8M. Overseas, Raya has amassed $72.1M to date, pushing its current worldwide total to approximately $111.9M.
