It slayed its competitors.

Japanese animated darkish fantasy “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba – To the Hashira Coaching” was No. 1 in theaters on Friday, incomes $5.525 million, according to IMDB’s Box Office Mojo.

The motion flick, based mostly on a manga collection, opened in theaters on Feb. 2.

It managed to beat out “Bob Marley: One Love,” which moved right down to second place this week with gross sales of $3.7 million.

The biopic, based mostly on the lifetime of the well-known Reggae singer-songwriter, has taken in over $100 million globally since its Valentine’s Day launch.

“Extraordinary Angels,” starring Hilary Swank, landed in third with a $2.3 million-dollar take.

The movie, which Variety said “tugs on the heartstrings,” relies on a true story of a Kentucky hairdresser who helped a widower whose daughter wanted a liver transplant throughout a blizzard.

The suspense thriller “Madame Net,” which was in second place final week, fell to fourth, taking in $1.575 million.

The film, which stars Dakota Johnson as a clairvoyant paramedic who helps Spider-Man discover a kidnapping sufferer, had the bottom opening for any movie within the Sony “Spider-Man” franchise, which some are attributing to the actress’ unenthusiastic press tour.

“Drive-Away Dolls,” which The Submit known as “dreadful,” took fifth, with simply over $1 million in gross sales.
