April 23 weekend box office review

Mario Mania’s dominance continues this weekend, as The movie Super Mario Bros.The box office race shows no signs of slowing down. Despite mixed reviews, the film surpassed the $800 million mark over the weekend and is on track to hit the coveted $1 billion by next week. Since the concurrency is quite outdated, Mario Brothers. will likely be the highest-grossing film of the week of April 30 before Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3 inevitably takes over for the first weekend of May. Cinemas are always full of spectators eager to see Super Mario Bros movie, maybe even repeat viewers coming back for another round. Who knows how the rest of the year will pan out, but we have our first official box office juggernaut of 2023. It’s great to see theaters alive after a few years of hesitation.

In terms of new movies during the week, there was plenty for audiences to choose from, and it looks like Evil Dead Rise caused a stir (although splat seems more the appropriate term here), grossing a nice domestic tally of $23.5 million against a budget of $19 million. The film has also grossed over $40.3 million worldwide, which shows how good it was to get it in theaters as opposed to HBO Max, where it was originally slated for release.

Now that audiences are less tired of movie theaters and have returned to cinemas in a meaningful way, it seems major studios are turning to streaming-exclusive films and seeing the viability of cinema as a way to attract as many eyes. as possible on a film. , without paying X amount of money per month for a streaming service. While Warner Bros. moves away from MAX-exclusive movies in favor of cinema streamers join the party for cinema-exclusive movies, even as Netflix remains weary of that approach (but continues to lose endless amounts of money doing it).

quite interesting, Guy Ritchie’s Pact opened in US theaters to modest success, finishing in third place with a total of $6.3 million, but did not open elsewhere. The film is slated to hit Prime Video in other countries in May or June, though a specific date has yet to be decided. It also happened with Ritchie’s last movie, Operation Fortune: Ruse of Warwhose original version was withdrawn due to the war in Ukraine.

And it looks like moviegoers want to get into the mind-bending journey of Ari AsterIt is Beau is scared. As it opened to more theaters, its box office gross rose 782.3%, opening in ninth place with an excellent tally of $2.8 million, already opening the highest-grossing indie box office of 2023. The fact that IMAX even decided to release it in select theaters is honestly the biggest move I’ve seen from an exhibitor this year, showing just how great the format is malleable. It’s not just for blockbusters. IMAX can also be a great tool for immersing audiences in the madness that handsome is scared. The film left no one in the middle. You will love it or you will hate it outright. One thing is certain: Aster’s career has not been killed. The film is doing very well in theaters.
