The movie Super Mario Bros. surpasses $1 billion in worldwide box office sales

Mario’s Big Return to the Big Screen is the last movie to gross $1 billion at the box office.

The movie Super Mario Bros. made its massive debut in early April, to acclaim for its adaptation of the most beloved gaming franchise. Produced by Universal Pictures and Nintendo, the film made big money on opening weekend and kept that momentum going over the of the following weeks. It quickly became clear that the movie was on its way to becoming one of the biggest of the year, and it just hit a big milestone. After less than a month in theaters, the Super Mario Bros. joined the billion dollar club.

As the weekend box office totals started rolling in on Sunday, we saw that the Super Mario Bros. had grossed $40 million in its fourth weekend in theaters. The film finished in first place, beating films like Evil Dead Rise and Are You There God? It’s me, Margaret. The latest fundraiser was enough to take the worldwide revenue of the Super Mario Bros. over a billion dollars.

The movie Super Mario Bros. is the first film to earn $1 billion at the box office since Avatar: The Way of Water in 2022. It is also currently the highest-grossing film of 2023 by a wide margin. Less than two weeks after its premiere, The Super Mario Bros. Movie has become the highest-grossing video game adaptation of all time.

The Mario movie has already left its mark on pop culture, with Jack Black’s Peaches charting on the Billboard Hot 100. Here at Shacknews, we were big fans of the adaptation in our review, and recently speculated what we would like to see in an inevitable sequel.

With the resounding success of the Super Mario Bros. movie, it’s a question of when, not if, we’ll get the announcement of a sequel, or perhaps another Nintendo-property adaptation. Stick with Shacknews for the latest on Nintendo’s efforts beyond its gaming business.
