It’s official: Mario is a super hit! The Super Mario Bros. Movie has only been in theaters for 26 days, but it’s already set to cross the coveted $1 billion milestone at the worldwide box office on Sunday. (According to the Hollywood Reporter) This achievement puts Mario in the company of just 10 other animated movies in history.  The film received a significant boost from its release in Japan this weekend, but it’s still performing incredibly well in US theaters after holding the number one spot for nearly four weeks. With these amazing numbers, Super Mario Bros has now earned more than Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and is nearly neck in neck for the total box office take of Jurassic World: Dominion!

With numbers like these, it’s clear that Mario and Luigi will be making movies for years to come!
