‘Demon Slayer’ Pulled a Fatality on ‘Mortal Kombat’ at the Box Office

But in both cases, the two top films lost 70% of their audiences, which isn’t a gr...

The battle of the highest-grossing movie in Japan was once fought between critically acclaimed titans of anime — Hayao Miyazaki’s Oscar-winning Spirited Away kept the title for years before being temporarily toppled by Makoto Shinkai’s sensational Your Name.
