Box Office: April 30 – May 2

Last weekend saw some “big” numbers for the box office as we saw Mortal Kombat land with $23 million and getting people into seats, the first big push in a long time. The Demon Slayer film was just a few million behind last weekend and made some good history with its opening and its overall progress since then.

This weekend, however, with nothing of note in a big way coming out means that things kind of fell back into weak mode. Demon Slayer takes the top spot this time around but by just about $200,000, which means these things could switch places at any point as the finalized numbers come in. But for now, it can take the win and there’s a lot to like with that. Amusingly, both it and Mortal Kombat worked the weekday pickups differently and Demon Slayer is ahead by about $13,000.

Godzilla vs Kong continues to pull in some coin as well to get it to $90 million total domestically.

Next week sees a couple of new films going wide with the action film Wrath of Man and the comedy Here Today.
