The Super Mario Bros Movie Makes Record-Breaking $377M

After a strong opening day, The Super Mario Bros. Movie continues to break records when it comes to the box office. It has made $204.6 million domestically after five days, beating Transformer: Revenge of the Fallen’s $200 million records. $204.6 million of the movie’s gross box office sales came from domestic sales, and international sales are around $173 million. That means the global opening sales for The Super Mario Bros Movie are around $377.2 million right now. This is a record-breaking amount of money for an animated film. [Thanks, Deadline!]

Part of The Super Mario Bros Movie’s success could come not only from the nostalgia, but how the movie is an “everybody movie” rather than one for just the whole family. There is a very even split in terms of attendance over all hours, averaging at around 25%, with most of them going between 1pm and 4pm (28%). Jim Orr, who is the Domestic Distribution Chief of Universal, stated that “audience of all ages and backgrounds” have gone to see the movie, which combines Nintendo’s “iconic characters” with Illumination’s “unbeatable filmmaking and storytelling prowess.”

The Super Mario Bros Movie is available in theaters. It will make its debut in Japanese theaters on April 28, 2023.
