Demon Slayer: Mugen Train wins the 2nd weekend at the US box office on both Saturday and Sunday $ 6.4 million gross versus $ 6.2 million for the Hollywood blockbuster. This is a historic achievement for two reasons: The first is that it is the second film to be successful afterwards Pokémon the movieand the second is that the film is only shown in 1600 theaters.

With the second weekend's earnings, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train officially exceeded $ 30.7 million for Dragon Ball Super: Broly in just ten days and became the third most popular anime film in North America after Pokémon: The First Movie (€ 85). 7 million) and Pokémon 2000: The Movie (43.7 million euros). The ability to beat the first Pokémon movie is likely to be blurry with the release of Sony Leaks, but the Ufotable movie it should still be able to pass Pokémon 2000: The Movie without too much trouble.

Demon Slayer: Mugen Train returned to weekend 2 earnings as Aniplex, Funimation and Warner Bros. showed, triumphing at the box office on Thursday April 29, Saturday May 1 and Sunday May 2 during Mortal Kombat captured Friday with 1.85 million in revenue, against 1.82 million for Demon Slayer: Mugen Train. This is a pretty disappointing result for Mortal Kombat. We remember that we were shown in about 3000 rooms and had a much larger advertising investment available.

Demon Slayer: Mugen Train is now around $ 500 million milestonewhich is expected to be cut by the end of May. The anime's second season will debut in 2021.
