The most talkative plumber in the world of videogames seems to have no ceiling as far as his brand new film adaptation is concerned and it is not a way of speaking, since it can already be said that Super Mario Bros. The Movie has become the second highest grossing animated film of all time after beating the Disney classic Frozen and accumulate a worldwide collection of more than 1,295 million dollars.
This new milestone comes just a month after the Universal, Illumination and Nintendo film was crowned the highest-grossing video game adaptation in history, far, far behind the second, and almost two months after its theatrical release. , where it already began its career sweeping and with signs of surprising, as is being demonstrated. In addition, on the two fronts in which it competed: video game adaptations and animated films.
It does not seem likely, however, that Super Mario Bros. The Movie manage to climb to the top of the list, taking into account that the film has been showing in theaters for two months and that it has a jump of more than 150 million dollars left to coverbut we were saying the same thing last month regarding the position he held then and look how things are now.
The first on the list, the highest grossing animated film in history, in case you wonder, is Frozen II, also from Disney and with a worldwide collection of more than 1,450 million dollars, seems impossible to beat. Although depending on the list you look at, it is one or the other, because there are those who consider The Lion Kinghe remake of 2019, like an animated film and in that case, there is no competition worth it.
For more data, the remake of The Lion King managed to amass a fortune of more than 1.660 million dollars in its global box office. As a curiosity, it is the ninth highest grossing film in history, behind hits from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, from Star Wars, jurassicworld, titanic either Avatar, among other. That said, it is a production closer to live action than to classic animation, even though it is pure CGI.
In the full list, Super Mario Bros. The Movie would occupy the nineteenth position, which is equally quite a feat for a movie based on a video game whose script includes a three-year-old child without getting lost, but that even so has dazzled most of the public around the world, not critics. But who cares what the critics say in these cases, in which the public and, above all, the box office, speak for themselves.
