According to the Deadline, The Super Mario Bros Movie has achieved remarkable milestones, surpassing all previous Illumination films in terms of global box office revenue with a staggering $1.36 billion haul. Moreover, it has emerged as the studio’s most profitable endeavor to date, netting an impressive $559 million, eclipsing the previous record held by Minions, which garnered a net profit of $502 million in 2015. This triumph is even more remarkable considering the failure of the 1993 live-action adaptation, which grossed a mere $40 million worldwide against a $50 million budget.

The disparity in success between the two movies can be attributed to the substantial involvement of Shigeru Miyamoto, the original architect behind the Super Mario Bros. games, in the latest film adaptation. His pivotal role ensured a faithful and authentic portrayal of the iconic franchise.
