Weekend box office: Mario is getting closer to a billion – Blog – The cinematic experience

By Ben Miller

For the third consecutive week, The movie Super Mario Bros. ran away with the weekend box office, this time hitting $59.9 million. It’s good for the 7th best third weekend in history. The domestic total currently stands at $436 million with a corresponding number overseas. At $870 million and rising, expect it to become a billion dollar movie (and likely a franchise) in the coming weeks. Counter-programming worked pretty well for the horror sequel Evil Dead Rise with a solid haul of $24.5 million. This equates to its 2013 predecessor, which ended at around $54 million. With a budget of 19 million dollars, it shows once again that horror is the most profitable genre…

Elsewhere, the much-discussed film by Ari Aster Handsome is scared expanded to just under 1,000 screens and makes just under $3,000 per screen. Impressive considering the response and length. The Kelvin Harrison with Knight only managed $1.5 million in a smaller but wide release. On the limited/platform side, Ray Romano’s directorial debut Somewhere in Queens opened quietly with less than $1 million across 600 screens.

Next weekend – Further mario a counter-programming is planned next week with the sports biopic Big George Foreman and adaptation by Judy Blume Are you there God, it’s me Margaret. We also have the limited Sundance hit release Polite company and the Nazi WWII action movie Sisu. To wait for mario to win the week again.

What did you see this weekend? My Own Oscar Completion Isn’t As Complete As Baby Clyde’s, But I Managed To Knock Out 1946’s The killers as well as the 1994 version of Little woman. I also watched the AppleTV+ Ghost (do not recommend) and the above Are you there God? it’s me margarita (which I cannot recommend highly enough).
