Everything indicated that ‘Super Mario Bros. The Movie’ was going to be a huge box office success, because it’s not just that it was one of the most anticipated movies of the year, it’s also that it came to theaters on its own date to devastate . And so it has been, since the adventure starring the Nintendo plumber has broken many box office records during its first five days in theaters.
For starters, ‘Super Mario Bros. The Movie’ has gotten the best premiere of the year with worldwide revenues of 377.2 million dollars, thus destroying the brand of ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’, since Marvel’s latest adventure to date debuted with 225.3 million. More than 150 million difference, little joke there.
Those 377.2 million dollars also represent the best opening of an animated film internationally of all timesurpassing the 358 million obtained by ‘Frozen 2’ in 2019. And also, also the best premiere in history for a film based on a video game, making a fool of the 210 million of ‘Warcraft: The Origin’.
In addition, the adaptation of the famous video game has also exceeded the record for best five-day U.S. opening, this is that it was released on Wednesday instead of Friday. Until now, that honor belonged to ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’ with $200 million, but ‘Super Mario Bros. The Movie’ has gone up to $204.6 million.
It would be very rare the sequel not be officially announced during those next few days.
