‘Mortal Kombat’ Dominates US Box Office, Debuts No.1

For the first time since the start of the COVID pandemic, we have witnessed an intense fight for the top of the box office in the United States, with the reboot of “ Mortal Kombat ” emerging as the winner.

The Warner Bros. debuted with 22.5 million US dollars in the country, surpassing the collection of the anime “Demon Slayer”, which debuted with an impressive 19.5 million US dollars.

It’s worth mentioning that the first adaptation of “Mortal Kombat,” released in 1995, debuted with US $ 23.2 million – which further underscores the reboot’s success, given how complex it is today.

In total, the reboot grossed over $ 50 million worldwide.

In Brazil, “Mortal Kombat” is set to hit theaters on May 13. The information was revealed by the notice of Warner Bros. at CinePOP.

Simon McQuoid (“Premonition 5”) is responsible for the staging.

MMA fighter Cole Young, used to being beaten for money, is unaware of his legacy – or because Emperor Outworld Shang Tsung sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, a Cryomancer from another world, to hunt Cole. Fearing for the safety of his family, Cole sets out to find Sonya Blade and Jax, a special forces major who carries the same strange dragon that Cole was born with. Soon he finds himself in the temple of Lord Raiden, an ancient God and protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with seasoned warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao, and devious mercenary Kano, as he prepares to take on Earth’s greatest champions against enemies of Outworld in a high-risk battle across the universe. But will Cole be under enough pressure to unlock his arcane – the immense power in his soul – in time to not only save his family, but also stop Outworld once and for all?

The cast includes Joe Taslim (Sub Zero), Ludi Lin (Liu Kang), Jessica McNamee (Sonya Blade), Mehcad Brroks (Jax) Josh Lawson (Kano), Chin Han (Shang Tsung), Hiroyuki Sanada (Scorpion), Tadanobu Asano (Raiden), Sisi Stringer (Mileena).

The new feature will be for over 18 years, with the promise of a lot of violence and death.

Released in 1995, the first adaptation of “Mortal Kombat” had a budget of $ 18 million and grossed $ 122.1 million at the global box office. The sequel, “Mortal Kombat – Annihilation,” cost $ 30 million, but only raised $ 51.3 million worldwide. Both have been slaughtered by critics.
