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.
Raya and the Last Dragon remained at the top of the box office as theaters continue to reopen and the theatrical industry slowly rebuilds while new release The Courier jumped into the top 5 and The Croods: A New Age remained in the top 5 for the 17th week in a row.
Raya and The Last Dragon was the #1 movie at the box office this weekend as the theater industry slowly begins to recover while Tom & Jerry dropped about 53% from last weekend’s big opening weekend and Chaos Walking opened above the modest predictions expected for it.
The Invisible Man took the top spot at the box office, becoming the highest-grossing horror movie of 2020 in just three days of release while Sonic held strong in second place and My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising became the latest successful theatrical anime release.
Birds of Prey took the top spot at the box office but it was definitely not an opening that WB/DC wanted as it underperformed with the lowest opening of any recent DC movie while a number of Oscar winners and nominees saw bumps in their box office performance over the weekend.
