Ever since The Super Mario Bros. Movie hit the theaters, there has been no limit to how much money it has made. Here is all about it!
The Super Mario Bros. franchise is nothing new to us. It is synonymous with the gaming culture that has continued from the old-school gaming era. It has come a long way from being a game to a movie now. And it feels like the impact of Super Mario Bros. is still there as it has been just rising in the theaters.
Ever since its release, Super Mario Bros. has known no limits in terms of how much money it can make. Banking on the nostalgia and how family-friendly it is, the movie’s earnings have crossed 300 million dollars. This is huge news, as 2023 has already seen John Wick 4 and Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. But the impact of Super Mario Bros. has simply been phenomenal.
As only a handful of films have managed to make above 800 million dollars globally in revenue, it bears ample testimony to the fact that the movie has had a legendary run in its initial time already. The movie has already become the highest-grossing movie of the year and the second highest-earning post-Covid animated movie.
The only animated movie to have grossed more than it is Minions: The Rise of Gru. A product of Nintendo, Universal, and Illumination, The Super Mario Bros. Movie had already made a statement when its first three days earned it a whopping 146 million dollars in revenue.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie touching the milestones
The movie with Chris Pratt, Seth Rogen, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Charlie Day has crossed the expectations that were already set for an animated movie released after the Covid-19 pandemic.
Having been released in more than 70 territories worldwide, The Super Mario Bros. Movie has definitely issued a statement for itself even beyond the category of animated movies. Already the highest-earning movie of the year after having crossed Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, The Super Mario Bros. Movie is out to have more laurels under its belt.
It is also interesting to note that the rise of The Super Mario Bros. Movie has come at a time when Fast X is going to release on May 19, and The Flash is all set for its release on June 16.
With so many highly anticipated movies in the pipeline for the year, it will be interesting to see what will happen to the rankings of the year. But one thing is sure- The Super Mario Bros. Movie has definitely stolen a lot of hearts just riding on its nostalgia and its pure, innocent, and childlike vibe.
