There is absolutely no stopping “The Super Mario Bros. Movie.” At a time when many blockbusters in the post-shutdown box office are taking drops of over 60% in their second weekend, the Universal/Illumination animated film is dropping just 45% for an Illumination record $80 million in its second weekend.

Should that number stand, “Super Mario Bros.” will have a 10-day domestic total of $340 million, 61% ahead of the pace set last summer by “Minions: The Rise of Gru.” It also reached $500 million worldwide in just nine days, passing the entire theatrical run of “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” to become 2023’s highest grossing film.

These incredible legs should be the momentum “Super Mario Bros.” needs to become the first animated $1 billion box office hit of the 2020s, though it may come down to the film’s upcoming release in South Korea and Japan in the last weekend of April to get it over the line.
