With the last Italian box office of the weekend, Super Mario Bros. has for now become the most watched film of the calendar year here, while in the world it has predictably broken into one billion dollars.
Super Mario Bros. – The Movieafter the results of the long weekend at the Italian box office (thanks to May Day), has become for now the most watched film in Italy in the calendar year: its domestic total of 18,803,000 euros (source Cinetel) in fact beat the post-January takings of Avatar: The Way of Water, who still remains the invincible winner of the season, with his 44 million. Even in the rest of the world, however, Super Mario takes no prisoners…
Super Mario Bros. – The film exceeds the billion dollar mark worldwide
With a budget of $100 million, Super Mario Bros. – The Movie currently boasts a result at world box office Of 1.026.377.000, according to Boxofficemojo. The already surprisingly stable box office received a further boost from the April 28 Japanese release, which already clocks in at $13,762,000. There Universalthanks to its partnership with Illuminationis used to these figures, but after the pandemic, these results had never been achieved for an animated film: even Minions 2: How Gru becomes evilby the same authors, had “stopped” last year at 939,628,000… and the plumber doesn’t seem to want to rest (he’s never done that in forty years, after all), shaking the record Frozen Disney animated series, thus far the highest grossing cartoon of all time, which brought home 1,284,540,518. A very concrete eventuality, because in the US the film has already sold well three historic records for the consecutive keeping of receipts in the three weeks following its release.
Naturally, in the case of Frozen we are still talking about a 2013 film and figures not updated to inflation, so we always remember that to contextualize these challenges correctly it would be more correct to compare the number of spectators…
