Super Mario Brothers cartoon movie passes $1 billion

The Daily Wire says Hollywood's been stunned by the massive success of the animated film based on the Nintendo game:
“The Super Marios Bros. Movie” has shocked Hollywood after hitting another massive milestone four weeks out when it crossed the $1 billion mark at the global box office this weekend.

The film, which is an adaptation of the popular Nintendo video game, has officially become the first movie of 2023 to hit the coveted milestone with the film’s release worldwide, Variety reported. [...]

The movie opened on April 5th during the long Easter holiday and ended up surpassing Marvel’s highly-anticipated “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.” After its first weekend, the film had already become the top-grossing film of 2023 at the worldwide box office and domestically, as previously reported.

It has a star-studded cast of voices, with Pratt as the voice of Mario and Jack Black voicing the love-struck tortured villain, Bowser. The success makes it not only the first movie to cross the $1 billion mark globally but also the first film ever based on a video game to have that kind of success, the outlet noted.
Personally, I think developing this movie as an animated production was an important factor in its success. And if it doesn't shoehorn any divisive ideologies into its script, that's another vital plus. Maybe that's why Hollywood's so utterly shocked it proved successful.

Let's hope going forward, this'll send an important message to woke Hollywood nobody wants far-left ideological pandering shoved down their throats, and let's also hope no such thing infects any sequels made in the future, if the studio's planning to film any.
