While DC and even Marvel may have stumbled this year at the Box Office, it looks like The Super Mario Bros. is currently the best-earning movie of 2023 thus far.
As reported by Box Office Pro, The Super Mario Bros. movie has already earned $195 million in North America. This is a five-day total since the movie opened on a Wednesday instead of a traditional Friday.
From a worldwide perspective, the movie is the biggest animated film opening of all time. The movie has now earned $368 million worldwide already. This beats the previous record of $358 million earned by Frozen 2 back in 2019.
With these numbers, the movie can easily surpass the $1 billion mark. It is also on track to beat the two Sonic movies to be the highest-grossing video game adaptation of all time.
Hopefully, these numbers are enough to convince Nintendo to finally make The Legend of Zelda movie!
