“Super Mario Bros” Movies Earn $127.5 Million, This Is The Second-best 5-day Debut For Illumination

Super Mario Bros Movies Earn $127.5 million

The new animated movie “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” will pay off soon. After opening in theaters on Wednesday, April 5, the film looks to be on track to earn $127.5 million in its five-day opening weekend domestically for the deadline.

That would mark the second-biggest opening weekend for producer Illumination, the studio behind “Despicable Me” and “Minions.”

“Super Mario Bros.” movie

The new animated film was co-produced by Nintendo, Illumination, and Universal Pictures. The film opened Wednesday without early Tuesday previews. That works out to an opening day of $26 million and a projected three-day opening weekend of $86.2 million. The current five-day long holiday weekend total is $127.5 million from Wednesday through Sunday.

Illumination’s opening weekend record is its 2013 sequel, “Despicable Me 2,” which had a $143 million domestic opening weekend. The movie grossed $368 million nationally and $970 million worldwide. Illumination’s biggest box office hit to date is the 2015 animated film “Minions,” which brought in $1.159 billion worldwide.

The film holds the $72.1 million opening weekend record for a film created on a video game. The movie “The Super Mario Bros.” Movie is all set to be highest this weekend.

The only other new movie coming out this weekend is Ben Affleck’s take on the story behind the creation of the Air Jordan sneaker line, “Air.” “Air” also stars Affleck as Nike CEO Phil Knight and Matt Damon as Nike executive Sonny Vaccaro, who makes it his mission to sign NBA rookie Michael Jordan to the company.

Finally, in its second weekend, Deadline notes that “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves” is looking to bring in about $20 million in its second weekend. That wouldn’t be too bad of a 45 percent drop. “Dungeons & Dragons” and “Air” are receiving good reviews. Strong word of mouth is likely to help “Dungeons & Dragons” in the coming weekends.

In the old, “Super Mario Bros.” There was a much-maligned live-action movie in theaters starring the late Bob Hoskins as Mario, John Leguizamo as Luigi, and Dennis Hopper as King Koopa. The film was a gigantic bomb that prevented Nintendo from adapting more of its popular properties as movies for over 30 years.

The animated movie boasts an all-star cast including Charlie Day as Luigi, Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, and Jack Black as Bowser, King of the Koopas. The movie is now in theaters.
