“The Super Mario Bros. Movie” continues to top the box office in North America, with grosses exceeding one billion dollars worldwide, according to preliminary figures for a movie this year, according to the specialty agency, “Experience Relations” on Sunday.
The animated film based on the video game of the same name, produced by Universal Studios, Nintendo and Illumination, topped the North American box office last weekend with $40 million in Canada and the United States.
Since hitting theaters over the Easter weekend, the film has grossed $490 million in North America and $532 million in other countries, according to Examiner Relations. Its total worldwide revenue in four weeks was $1.02 billion.
The specialty magazine “Hollywood Reporter” noted that it was the first film to surpass one billion dollars in revenue this year, and the tenth animated film to achieve such a feat.
And Warner Bros.’ “Evil Dead Rises” took second place in the chart, reaching $12.2 million in its second weekend.
The film stars Lily Sullivan and Alyssa Sutherland as two sisters who battle demonic creatures.
