    'Godzilla vs. Kong' Three-Peats at No. 1, Roaring Past $80 Million Domestic and $300 Million Overseas

    With little in the way of supersized cinematic foes to battle at the box office, Warner Bros.’ big-budget clash of the titans, Godzilla vs. Kong, kept stomping the competition this weekend, three-peating as the No. 1 film in North America, adding another $7.7 million to its already-impressive haul in its third frame.


    The titanic PG-rated tentpole, which pits the legendary lizard against the skyscraper-sized simian sensation, lost some steam from the previous weekend, dipping -44.5%, but its $80.5 domestic total further cemented its place as the biggest hit of the pandemic era. The film earned a $2,567 per-screen average in 3,001 theaters, which is especially impressive considering that it is also available on the HBO Max streaming service for no additional fee.


    Even more impressive, however, was how the film has been performing abroad. Outside of the U.S. and Canada, Godzilla vs. Kong has pulled in a monster-sized $309.7 million to date—the lion’s share of which has come from China, where it has racked up roughly $177 million—bringing its cumulative worldwide total to $390.2 million. That puts it on track to pass the $400 million milestone this week. (As a footnote, the last Hollywood blockbuster to also earn $400 million worldwide was Bad Boys For Life 15 months ago). Still, next weekend will be the dynamic duo’s first real test as Warner Bros.’ highly anticipated videogame adaptation, Mortal Kombat, rolls into multiplexes.


    In the runner-up spot once again this weekend was Universal’s Nobody. The bullet-riddled action flick about a suburban dad-turned-vigilante (Bob Odenkirk) added $2.5 million its fourth session. The PG-13-rated film slipped a mere -4.8% from the previous weekend and managed an $1,047 per-screen average in 2,405 theaters (not bad since it also finally bowed on premium VOD this week), bringing its domestic box office total to $19 million. Outside of North America, the movie has tacked on just under $15.5 million, bringing its total worldwide gross to $34.5 million.


    In third place was Screen Gems’ occult horror film, The Unholy. The PG-13-rated chiller starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan dropped off -14.2% in its third weekend with a hair under $2.1 million. Unspooling in 2,057 theaters, The Unholy scored a $1,001 per-screen average. It has tacked on a negligible $447,817 internationally, putting its combined box-office total at $10 million.


    In fourth was Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon. In its seventh week, the PG-rated computer-animated adventure padded its take with another $1.9 million domestically, falling -13.7% from the previous frame. Despite also being available as a premium VOD rental on the Disney+ streaming platform for a $30 fee, the film had a $976 per-screen average in 1,945 theaters, bringing its domestic box office total to roughly $37.7 million. Overseas, Raya has accumulated $58 million to date, pushing its current worldwide total to approximately $95.7 million.


    Rounding out the top five was an old friend, Warner Bros.’ Tom and Jerry, which had recently been bounced out of the Top 5, but made a strong comeback this weekend. The PG-rated ‘toon starring the iconic, squabbling cat-and-mouse team earned $1.1 million in its eighth week, losing -9.9% from the previous weekend and scoring a $537 per-screen average in 2,028 locations. Its two-month domestic total is now $42.6 million. Internationally, the film has added $58.8 million thus far, bringing its worldwide tally to $101.4 million.


    The weekend’s other debut of note was Neon’s pandemic-themed horror film In the Earth. Written and directed by British bad boy Ben Wheatley (2013’sA Field in England, 2015’s High-Rise), the atmospheric R-rated fright flick about a scientist and a park ranger searching deep in the woods for a cure to a deadly virus landed in the No. 8 spot, scaring up $506,000 in 547 theaters—which translates into a $925 per-screen average. It has not yet opened internationally.


    Finally, on a sad note—especially to California movie lovers—the Pacific Theaters chain announcement this week that it would be closing the doors of its 300 cinemas for good, including its beloved ArcLight locations. It’s just one of the many body blows to hit the movie business since the COVID-19 pandemic began a little more than a year ago. Take a moment to pour out a few sips of your next fountain soda in its memory.

    The Strong One-Two Punch of 'Mortal Kombat' and 'Demon Slayer' KOs The Competition in Busy Box Office Weekend



    Just a month after Godzilla vs. Kong kicked off a much-needed rebound at the box office, two brawny newcomers KO’d the competition with a ferocious one-two punch, easily taking the top two spots in North America this weekend. The double-barreled debuts resulted in the biggest overall theatrical session since the coronavirus pandemic began a little more than a year ago and are just the latest sign that audiences might finally be ready to return to multiplexes after a year of streaming movies at home.

    The big winner was Warner Bros.’ Mortal Kombat, which came out of the gate with a muscular $22.5 million bow. It was the second-highest opening-weekend tally since Godzilla vs. Kong’s $31 million haul in March. Despite mixed reviews, the violent, R-rated videogame adaptation (which is also currently streaming on the HBO Max platform) scored an impressive $7,326 per-screen average in 3,073 theaters. The film added another $27.6 million overseas, bringing its worldwide cumulative total to $50.1 million. Despite the strength of Mortal Kombat’s stateside roll-out, the film faced unexpectedly stiff competition from FUNimation Entertainment’s Demon Slayer—The Movie: Mugen Train, an anime action-adventure with a big cult fan base overseas, where it has already become a bona fide blockbuster. The R-rated film pulled in $19.5 million in its opening weekend in North American theaters thanks to a fantastic $12,213 per-screen average in 1,600 theaters. That figure gives the movie the highest domestic per-screen average since Sonic the Hedgehog 14 months ago.

    Overseas, Demon Slayer already qualifies as a box-office juggernaut—especially in the anime-friendly territory of Japan, where it become the country’s highest-grossing movie of all time. To date, Demon Slayer has accumulated $388.2 million internationally, which combined with its North American numbers puts it just past the $400 million milestone with $407.7 million. In other words, even if Americans hadn’t heard of Demon Slayer prior to this weekend, they sure know about it now.

    In third place was Warner Bros.’ now-toppled kaiju kings, Godzilla vs. Kong, which collected another $4.2 million in its fourth frame. The titanic PG-13-rated tentpole lost some steam, dropping off -44.5% from the previous frame. The movie earned a $1,470 per-screen average in 2,856 theaters over the weekend despite being available on the HBO Max, where it will play free for subscribers through the end of April. Godzilla vs. Kong’s domestic total now stands at $86.6 million. And after adding the monster mash-up’s $320 million in overseas receipts, it finally pushed past the $400 million mark worldwide—the first major-studio release to pull off that feat since Bad Boys For Life 15 months ago.

    In fourth place was Universal’s Nobody. The bullet-riddled action flick about a suburban dad-turned-vigilante (Better Call Saul’s Bob Odenkirk) added just under $1.9 million its fifth session. The R-rated film slipped -25.6% from the previous weekend and managed an $825 per-screen average in 2,252 theaters (it’s also available on premium VOD as of last week), bringing its domestic box office total to $21.7 million. Outside of North America, the movie has tacked on $16.5 million, bringing its total worldwide gross to $38.2 million.

    Rounding out the Top Five was Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon. In its eighth week, the PG-rated computer-animated adventure padded its take with a hair 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 $39.8 million. Overseas, Raya has amassed $72.1 million to date, pushing its current worldwide total to approximately $111.9 million.

    The weekend’s only other debut of note was Bleecker Street’s quirky indie Together Together. The R-rated dramatic comedy about a female loner who agrees to be a surrogate for a man in his 40s opened in eighth place, pulling in $522,440 in limited release. The film, which made its premiere at Sundance, unspooled in 665 theaters and earned a $785 per-screen average. It has not opened internationally yet.

    No dog in the fight but I was really hoping the lil anime movie would grab number one because it would have been a pretty fun little footnote in box office history. They were neck on neck on Friday but MK ended up pulling away by just a little.

    Demon Slayer Captures No. 1 Spot w/ $6.42M 2nd Weekend; Mortal Kombat Falls to Runner-Up Position w/ $6.24M



    Last weekend was another encouraging one at the domestic box office with the dual releases of Mortal Kombat and Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train, both of which grossed north of $20 million and injected new life into theaters. Those films retained their top-two positioning in the current frame, but with Demon Slayer adding additional screens to its footprint, the anime swapped places with Mortal Kombat to take the top spot this go-round.

    After opening to $21.14 million in its opening weekend, Funimation’s Demon Slayer dropped a steep 70% to bring in an estimated $6.42M in its sophomore frame from 1,905 locations – a count that includes several premium large format screens that were held by Mortal Kombat last weekend. That brings the R-rated anime to $32.22M after 11 days of release (including its opening-day gross two Thursdays ago), which already makes it the third highest-grossing anime film of all time in North America after 1999’s Pokemon: The First Movie ($85.74M) and 2000’s Pokemon the Movie 2000 ($43.76M). It surpassed the lifetime gross of 2019’s Dragon Ball Super: Broly ($30.71M) on Saturday.

    Falling to second place, Warner Bros.’ Mortal Kombat took in an estimated $6.24M in its sophomore frame from 3,114 locations, a sharp drop of 73% from its opening gross of $23.3M. That’s a much steeper second-weekend descent than the 1995 adaptation of the long-running video game franchise, which dipped 55% in its second weekend (albeit in non-pandemic times). The video-game reboot now has $34.09M after ten days of release.

    Compared with similar pandemic-era titles, the new Mortal Kombat’s sophomore slump is notably pronounced. In January, Warner Bros’ Wonder Woman 1984 fell 68% in its second weekend, while the studio’s Godzilla vs. Kong declined just 56% in its sophomore frame last month. All three were concurrently available on HBO Max.

    The second-weekend declines of Demon Slayer and Mortal Kombat aren’t necessarily surprising given that both fall into traditionally front-loaded genres. Anime and video-game adaptations draw audiences made up largely of young males who tend to rush out on opening weekend, often leading to precipitous second-weekend declines for those genres.

    Godzilla vs. Kong held steady in third place with an estimated $2.74M, a decline of 36% from last weekend. The Warner Bros. tentpole has $90.31M after five weeks of release.

    Opening in fourth was the poorly-reviewed Open Road/Briarcliff horror title Separation, which debuted with a relatively disappointing $1.83M from 1,751 locations. That’s significantly less than The Unholy made in its debut frame in early April, when it grossed $3.15M from 1,850 theaters.

    In fifth, Disney’s leggy Raya and the Last Dragon grossed an estimated $1.34M in its ninth weekend of release, bringing the total for the animated adventure to $41.58M.

    Sixth place went to Universal’s Nobody, which brought in an estimated $1.26M in its sixth weekend of release. The Bob Odenkirk action title, which has had a relatively long tail in terms of pandemic box office, has $23.36M to date.

    Sony/Screen Gems’ The Unholy took seventh place with an estimated $1.07M in its fifth weekend, bringing the total for the horror title to $13.13M.

    Boasting the best per-screen average in the top 10 was Universal’s 10th anniversary re-release of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, which took in an estimated $720,000 from just 152 locations for a per-screen average of $4,737 in eighth place.

    Opening outside the top 10 in limited release was the BAFTA-nominated British comedy-drama Limbo, which took in an estimated $90,000 from 208 theaters.
