Buckle up and get ready for a Nintendo Cinematic Universe, as The Super Mario Bros. Movie continues to make money. It is now officially the 10th animated film to pass the $1 billion mark worldwide, according to The Hollywood Reporter. More notably, it’s the first animated movie to achieve the feat since the COVID-19 pandemic became a thing, and only the fifth movie overall (Spider-Man: No Way Home, Top Gun: Maverick, Jurassic World Dominion, and Avatar: The Way of Water). Domestically, the movie is expected to generate around $40 million, bringing its North American total to $490 million through Sunday. Internationally, its weekend total is estimated to be around $68.3 million, contributing to a total of $532.5 million.

From its initial release, The Super Mario Bros. Movie has been setting records, and even Jack Black’s “Peaches” has gone viral. It easily became the highest-grossing video game adaptation in history and now, with its release in Japan, we should expect that number to continue to climb. Clearly, Mario knows how to collect coins.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie stars Chris Pratt as Mario, Charlie Day as Luigi, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Jack Black as Bowser, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, and Keegan-Michael Key as Toad. It is directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic.
