Zack Snyder's Justice League and Godzilla vs. Kong made major waves when they were released on HBO Max. The campaign for the Snyderverse and the Monsterverse receive more traction due to the release of these two major franchises. However, a new contender has come in which is the latest Mortal Kombat.
The HBO Max audience of Mortal Kombat has reportedly exceeded the numbers for Zack Snyder's Justice League and Godzilla vs. Kong in its first weekend of release. Samba TV, a per viewer recommendation and tracking company, revealed that Mortal Kombat was streamed by over 3.8 million US households that were subscribed to HBO Max from April 23-25, 2021. That number is more than double of the US households that watched Zack Snyder's Justice League in the first three days at 1.8 million and Godzilla vs. Kong's opening weekend at 3.6 million.
In addition, Mortal Kombat was also streamed more than Wonder Woman 1984 in the same window of time on HBO Max, with the Gal Gadot film garnering 2.2 million US households during the Christmas opening.
Despite all these numbers, it has to be noted that Samba TV is only installed in certain TV units and does not represent all of the households who have watched the movies. The biggest winner in all of these is HBO Max. Due to the major releases that have been released on the streaming platform, it has gathered momentum to catch up to Disney+ and Netflix.
Mortal Kombat is still available for streaming on HBO Max and on COVID-safe theaters.
