The Super Mario Bros. Movie is just a few weeks away, and it’s now appearing on box office tracking, giving us a good idea of how successful it’s likely to be. According to reports, it should be able to gross at least $85-$90 million over the course of its 5-day opening weekend (Wednesday, April 5th to Sunday, April 9th).
To put that number in perspective, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 earned around $71 million during its opening weekend. At the time, it was the biggest opening for any movie based on a video game. The Super Mario Bros. Movie is set to overtake that record, and that’s with an estimate on the conservative side, as it could easily surpass these predictions.
With the recent excitement of Mario Day and the opening of Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios, everything seems to be lining up for The Super Mario Bros. Movie to be a box office smash! Stay tuned as we get closer to the movie’s release date on April 5, 2023.
