The Super Mario Bros. Movie, which hit theatres two weeks ago, is breaking box-office records and raking in over $400 million in domestic earnings. The movie’s success shows that American families are starving for wholesome, un-woke films for their children. Maybe Disney and Universal will finally learn that pushing the woke agenda in movies like Lightyear and Strange World will never resonate with viewers and will only lead to a loss in earnings.

Audiences are giving Super Mario Bros rave reviews and it has already out-earned Frozen II’s second weekend, coming in with second highest second weekend ever for an animated film. The movie stars Chris Pratt, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Day and others famous voices.

According to Future Party:

The Super Mario Bros. Movie collected more accolades than gold coins this past weekend.

  • It’s the highest-grossing debut of 2023 so far, squishing Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumanias $106.1 million.

  • That makes it the biggest five-day debut ever, beating 2009’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’s $200 million.

  • It’s also the biggest animated debut of all time, freezing out Frozen 2’s $358.4 million.

Kids were the main draw for Super Mario Bros, but what has helped the success is how parents and entire families find the story interesting. The production was made for the entire family because many of the parents were raised on Mario video games.

Super Mario Bros drop in earning from its first weekend “placed it in fourth place for a $100 million-grossing movie’s sophomore hold.” It only places behind Top Gun: Maverick (-29%), Shrek 2 (-30%), and Frozen II (-34%).

The film has grossed over $700 million globally and is set become the first to enter the $1 Billion club since Avengers: Endgame.
