The Super Mario Bros. Movie is expected to pass the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office later today (Sunday, April 30).
We already knew that the Super Mario Bros. movie was doing just fine for itself, and that it’s now officially the highest-grossing film of 2023 and the biggest video game adaptation of all time, but If it reaches that milestone later today, it will be only the 10th animated film to do so.
That’s according to The Hollywood Reporter, which says the North American estimated weekend gross for the film is $37.5 million, for a domestic tally of $487.5 million through Sunday.
Overseas, however, it’s expected to make $69 million, taking its total to $533 million – and an astonishing $1.02 billion globally.
You may have already heard that there’s something extra at the end of the credits for the Super Mario Bros. movie, but there are actually two scenes for the movie’s credits — one after the first set of credits, and then another right at the end.
Tom wrote in his review of the Super Mario Bros. movie, “We’ve come a long way from Bowser’s brief cameo in Wreck-It Ralph, when Nintendo famously used Disney animators to show Bowser holding a cup of tea.” Notes were given properly.
“The version of the lightsaber of this world, hand-crafted with Miyamoto’s white glove, undoubtedly allows more freedom – though, perhaps unusually for Miyamoto, steadfastly refuses to disturb the tea table. Perhaps Nintendo K’s caution is understandable, as that is the last time Mario appeared on the cinema screen. Three decades later, this film falls as part of a very different era of Mario, though Nintendo’s mascot is as entertaining as ever. .
