The movie Super Mario Bros. is closing in on $1 billion in its third weekend in theaters, as it grossed another $58.23 million domestically en route to a worldwide total of $871.83 million.
As reported by Comscore, The Super Mario Bros. sits at $434.32 million in North America and was only down a slight 37% from last week’s performance of $87 million.
Its $58.23 million run helped it earn the highest third-weekend domestic box office earner for an animated film as it topped Incredibles 2’s $46.41 million. As it stands, it has now placed just ahead of Spider-Man: No Way Home’s $56.02 million to secure the 7th-best third weekend ever.
Evil Dead Rise had a respectable opening despite losing to The Super Mario Bros. Movie with a domestic debut of $23.5 million. Evil Dead Rise is the fifth entry in the Evil Dead film franchise and tells “the twisted story of two estranged sisters, played by [Alyssa] Sutherland and [Lily] Sullivan, whose reunion is cut short by the rise of flesh-possessing demons, pushing them into a primal battle for survival as they face the most nightmarish version of the family imaginable.”
In our Evil Dead Rise review, we said it was “a familiar yet refreshing sequel to Evil Dead that delivers all the gore you’d expect with a measured dose of humor that makes this series a favorite.” fans”.
Guy Ritchie’s The Covenant opened in third place with $6.28 million, and the film tells the story of Jake Gyllenhaal’s Sergeant John Kinley who works to rescue an Afghan interpreter (Dar Salim) after he saved his life but left to be hunted down by the Taliban.
In our The Covenant review, we said “it’s not Guy Ritchie’s best, but Jake Gyllenhaal and Dar Salim’s standout performances as tie-in heroes salvage an otherwise bloated military thriller.”
John Wick: Chapter 4 took fourth place in its fifth weekend in theaters by grossing $5.75 million domestically. In total, John Wick’s fourth film made $168.88 million in North America. Rounding out the top five was Air, which grossed $5.54 million in its third weekend.
