Despite the uncertainty that existed before its release in movie theaters, Super Mario Bros.: The Movie has proven not only to be above any negative criticism or controversy due to its dubbing, but also any box office obstacle that could be found.
The film based on Nintendo’s most popular character reached the cinemas in the middle of Easter, on April 5, and achieved instant box office success with one of the most prolific openings since the coronavirus pandemic struck.
Week after week, Mario’s adventure in the Mushroom Kingdom, Bowser’s song and the general affection that has raised the Illumination film They have translated into box office figures that not many animated films that pass through theaters are capable of reaching.
In fact, Super Mario Bros.: The Movie has crept into the top positions in the ranking of highest-grossing animated films in history.
Super Mario Bros.: The movie is a resounding blockbuster
Con 1,160.8 million dollarsthe adaptation of the Nintendo video games surpasses The Minions, also by Illumination, and is positioned as the fifth highest-grossing animated film of all time.
It seems complicated, however, that Super Mario Bros.: The Movie manages to seize the throne from The Lion King, the remake of the Disney animated classic directed by Jon Favreau that amassed 1663 million dollars in its passage through the billboard.
But Super Mario Bros.: The Movie does not need to be crowned to demonstrate everything it has already demonstrated: video game adaptations do have the potential to succeed at the box office, if all those involved do their part for it.
Although the Illumination and Nintendo film has little time left to scratch millions at the box office, it is not too unreasonable that it manages to stay close to The Incredibles 2 (1.242 million dollars), or even surpass the Pixar film.
For now, Super Mario Bros.: The Movie continues its journey on the billboard. Where will it stay when it’s finally pulled from theaters?
