Everyone wants to see The Super Mario Bros. Movie. In Germany, the animation spectacle is miles ahead of its competition and sits alone at the top: over four million tickets for the mustache plumber have now been sold in Germany. For comparison: Keanu Reeves holds second place as a hitman in "John Wick: Chapter 4". 1.58 million tickets were purchased for the furious shooting gallery action. And the animated film is also on the road to absolute success worldwide: "The Super Mario Bros. Movie" has already grossed more than 1.045 billion dollars, making it one of the 50 most successful films of all time (not including inflation). Currently (as of May 03, 2023), the film is already in 43rd place and has top-class box office hits such as "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey", "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" or "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace' obsolete. It seems that right now the whole world wants to see how Mario & Luigi save the Mushroom Kingdom from extinction. On Twitter, a user had uploaded the film in its entirety. In total, the video stayed online for over 7 hours and was protected by over 9 million people, according to a Forbes article. Anyone who now thinks "How bold is that", let me tell you: It can be much more bold! The Argentinian TV channel GenTV has already broadcast the full length of "The Super Mario Bros. Movie" and that's only one week (!) after the cinema release! The broadcaster already has a reputation for illegally broadcasting millions of blockbusters shortly after they open in cinemas, such as the Marvel hit "Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania". We have no idea what the penalties are for the TV network or the Twitter uploader, but it's hard to imagine Nintendo and its corporate lawyers standing by and doing nothing while illegal copies of the new Mario animated blockbuster are publicly shown on the internet. If you still want to watch the film legally, you still have the chance to do so in the cinema. "The Super Mario Bros. Movie" started on April 5, 2023, but is currently not showing any signs of fatigue and should probably flicker in the cinemas for a few more weeks.
