The Super Mario Bros. Movie becomes Mexico's highest grossing film ever
Truly no higher honor
Nintendo is used to topping the software and hardware charts in the gaming world, but now they’ve achieved an accolade that puts them above every single film ever.
At the beginning of the month, The Super Mario Bros. Movie become the third highest-grossing film in Mexico. The only films to gross more in Mexico were Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: No Way Home. Now, just two weeks after, both movies have fallen.
Believe it or not, The Super Mario Bros. Movie is now the highest-grossing movie in Mexico ever. That’s not animated film or game adaptation, but straightforward movie. You name a film to have released in Mexico and The Super Mario Bros. Movie has beaten it.
This is an absolutely surreal moment for Nintendo. They stayed away from movies for so long after the failure of the original Mario Bros. live-action film, and when they finally return to cinemas, they manage to outdo every other movie ever. Talk about a comeback story!
