Super Mario Bros. Movie Set to Break Box Office Records. The highly anticipated animated film, The Super Mario Bros. Movie, is set to break box office records, with a projected five-day domestic debut of $195 million or more, exceeding expectations.
The film, based on the popular Nintendo video game and produced by Illumination and Universal, opened on Wednesday to take advantage of the spring holidays. Let’s check out the record-breaking revenue of Super Mario Bros.
Mega-opening Expected For Super Mario Bros. Movie
The Super Mario Bros. Movie is projected to gross $55 million to $59 million on Friday alone, with $137 million for the weekend. If these figures hold, the movie will surpass Finding Dory’s opening weekend ($135.1 million) to become the second-best opening ever for an animated film, trailing only Incredibles 2, not adjusted for inflation.
Without accounting for inflation, Super Mario’s debut is on track to be the best start ever for a video game adaptation and the best start ever for Chris Meledandri’s Illumination, home of Despicable Me and Minions.
