And finally at the Italian weekend box office Super Mario Bros. – The film had to cede first place to the debut of Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3, which started out respecting the expectations of analysts around the world.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in his debut he managed the difficult task of unseating Super Mario Bros. – The movie from the first place of the weekend Italian box office: James Gunn’s film, new act of Marvel Cinematic Universe, started here with us with 4,627,800 euros (over five days), in the USA with 114 million dollars, and all over the world with 282,100,000. The American departure is in line with analysts’ expectations, so there are no surprises, either positive or negative. The second chapter in Italy in 2017 took advantage of a first full week of programming (from Tuesday 25 April to Monday 1 May), but collected “only” 2,897,000 euros, ergo things have gone much better this round. The road to recovering the mighty $250 million budget is steep, but the pace is set.
About Super Mario Bros. – The Movie, took home another 388,400 euros, for a powerful Italian total of 19,308,000 and a truly triumphant world championship of 1,155,300,000 dollars. If it doesn’t slow down too much, it could undermine the week during the week record the Frozen of the highest grossing for a cartoon (1.284.540.500), obviously inflation permitting.
Slide from second to third place The sun of the future Of Nanni Morettiwhere he himself plays a director who tries to tell the story of a bewildered PCI executive (Silvio Orlando) in the second half of the 1950s. Reality and fiction are intertwined, the public still likes it with a further 329,250, which merged into the total of 3,188,500. His previous Three floors had slightly exceeded 2 million, in this case there was evidently more enthusiasm from viewers (and the pandemic factor, challenged in 2021, is missing).
Debut in fourth position for The fourteenth Sunday of ordinary time Of Pupi Avati, where a love story, a musical career and a solid friendship over the decades are told at the same time. On the first weekend he takes home 240,800 euros. In the cast, between present and past, Gabriel Lavia, Edwige Fenech, Massimo Lopez, Lodo Guenzi, Camilla Ciraolo.
The continuation of one of the most famous horror sagas falls from third to fifth place, The House – The awakening of evil: collects another 200,800 euros, reaching the Italian total of 2,616,100. The worldwide result hovers at 97,800,000 dollars (on a very limited budget of not even 20).
