Super Mario Bros Movie Box Office Collection: The animated adventure film Super Mario Bros Movie continues its winning streak at the box office in its week 3 even after tough competition from films like Evil Dead Rise. The movie is racking up coins at the ticket windows and has hit nearly $1 billion in just 18 days in theaters. On the other hand, 'Evil Dead Rise' debuted solidly, launching with $23.5 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. But it was no match to Super Mario Bros as it minted $58.2 million in its third weekend.
Super Mario Bros. Movie became the highest-grossing animated released of the pandemic era, with domestic ticket sales up to $434.3 million through Sunday and its global tally at $871.1 million. In just a day or two, it will hit the golden $1 billion mark and will become the fourth film of the pandemic era to reach that benchmark, following Spider-Man: No Way Home, Top Gun Maverick and Avatar: The Way of Water.

About Evil Dead Rise Movie
Evil Dead Rise, From Warner Bros. and New Line, is the fifth installment (and first in a decade) in the thriller franchise that Sam Raimi began with this 1981 ultra-low-budget classic, Evil Dead. Though Raimi’s subsequent and much-adored films starring Bruce Campbell grew increasingly slapstick, marrying comedy and horror, the 2013 reboot and Evil Dead Rise (with Raimi as an executive producer) rely on chillier frights.
