New Line/Warner Brothers put some money on the screen for their latest attempt at making “Mortal Kombat” a big screen thing.
A $9 million Friday suggests that paid off. Fans are on track to make it at $25-$30 million hit on its opening weekend. Lot of people watching it on HBO Max? That helps, too.
But will it win the weekend? Sony Funimation’s anime “Demon Slayer” had a decent Thursday night and Friday, tabulating over $9 million for it’s official “opening day.” “Kombat” had no Thursday “previews.”
