NextImg:‘Super Mario Bros. Movie’ still at top of box office game after 3 weeks

It’s still at the top of its game.

For the third week in a row, “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” dominated the box office.

The animated adventure flick, based on the popular Nintendo game, raked in over $14 million on Friday alone, according to IMDB’s Box Office Mojo.


Since its opening on April 5, it has earned over $400 million nationwide, the second-fastest animated film to reach those numbers after “The Incredibles 2,” according to Deadline.

The supernatural horror movie “Evil Dead Rise,” the fifth installment of the “Evil Dead” series, came in second, with a $10.3-million take on its opening day.

The Post said “cute kids battle bloodthirsty demons” in “Evil Dead Rise.”

The Post called the film “gory-as-hell” and said it is “as campy and fun as any chapter in producer Sam Raimi’s four-decade-old horror series.”


“The Covenant,” the story of an army sergeant in Afghanistan, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, and an Afghani interpreter, played by Danish actor Dar Salim, landed in third, with $2.25 million in sales.

The Post said its director Guy Ritchie “cast the right duo,” however, he “pursues teary emotion but seems confused on how to deliver it.”

“John Wick: Chapter 4,” which was not even in the Top 5 last Friday, came in fourth, bringing home $1.57 million.

“Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves” ranked fifth, with $1.39 million in sales.
