‘John Wick’ became the rare R-rated franchise to top $1 billion worldwide

“The Super Mario Bros. Movie” has already topped $1.2 billion worldwide and should end its theatrical run with around $1.3 billion global, the second-biggest animated film ever behind “Frozen II,” which pulled in $1.45 billion in 2019. Alongside its massive $535 million-and-counting domestic total, the next biggest market for “Super Mario” is not China or the U.K. but rather Mexico (with $80 million thus far) and notably Japan, where it has earned $60 million thus far.

That is one of the biggest cumulative totals in the post-COVID era for a Hollywood film in Japan, between the $46 million earned by “Jurassic World Dominion” and the $101 million earned by “Top Gun: Maverick.”
