Box Office Report: Weekend of 4/31 – Demon Slayer Overtakes Mortal Kombat

By @HolocronJosh for @FilmCodex

After the biggest weekend for movie theaters since the pandemic began, the box office wasn’t quite as active this weekend as the two biggest players in theaters both dropped significantly. Last weekend, Mortal Kombat narrowly beat out Demon Slayer to take top spot. This weekend, Demon Slayer returned the favor, earning $6.4 million from Friday to Sunday, a 73% drop from last weekend. This brings its domestic total to an impressive $32.2 million.

Meanwhile, Mortal Kombat came in close second with $6.2 million, taking its total to $34 million domestically. Internationally, Mortal Kombat took in another $3 million.

Despite the drop offs seen this weekend, the box office can expect to continue to grow as long as vaccinations increase and pandemic numbers decline. Moreover, UK box office is set to have a boost as Godzilla vs Kong now has an official release date of May 17.
