The Super Mario Bros. Movie Has Out-Earned Frozen

The Super Mario Bros. Movie has been a global blockbuster, and it has a new claim to fame: it has now out-earned Frozen at the box office!

The Super Mario Bros. Movie has brought in $1,288,321,030 and is still going. Frozen, on the other hand, brought in $1,284,540,518 for its global box office run.
These are just straight numbers and do not take inflation into consideration. If you were to consider inflation, then Frozen would still be doing better than Super Mario Bros. (At least so far).
There are one or two animated movies that still have out-earned The Super Mario Bros. Movie in the box office. Frozen II continues to have Mario beat, and the 2019 CG Disney Lion King remake has out-earned The Super Mario Bros. Movie, though people debate whether it counts as an animated film.
When The Super Mario Bros. Movie was released, it raked in $377.5 million and had the best global opening weekend for a movie based on a video game as well as for an animated movie. Experts were soon predicting it would make more than a billion dollars.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie comes to us from Nintendo, Illumination and Universal. Here is the official description for the plot:

“From Nintendo and Illumination comes a new animated film based on the world of Super Mario Bros. Directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic (collaborators on Teen Titans Go!, Teen Titans Go! To the Movies) from a screenplay by Matthew Fogel (The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, Minions: The Rise of Gru), the film stars Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike.”
