Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge is getting a sequel, Manifest and Clarice are canceled, John Wick 4 gets another awesome cast member, the Gaston prequel series is greenlit on Disney+, Near Dark may be getting a 4K restoration and more in this week’s News Shotgun.
Mortal Kombat continued Warner Bros’ dominance of the pandemic affected box office with a strong debut and the #1 spot over the weekend but anime movie Demon Slayer The Movie: Mugen Train was an incredibly strong competitor and added to its already massive worldwide gross with its domestic release.
Godzilla vs Kong remained at the top of the box office for another weekend and, despite the strained conditions in the theatrical industry, it has topped the worldwide box office total of Godzilla: King of the Monsters by around $7 million and counting.
Godzilla vs Kong was the Alpha Titan of the box office over the weekend with the biggest debut in theaters since the pandemic began and topping Godzilla: King of the Monster’s opening weekend if you take Godzilla vs Kong’s five-day opening total.
Nobody took the top spot at the box office with one of the strongest openings since the pandemic started in another sign that the theatrical business is slowly recovering while Godzilla vs Kong had a huge opening in China ahead of this week’s US release.
