The Super Mario Bros Movie Is 2023’s First Billion Dollar Hit, While Evil Dead Rise Holds On Strong At The Weekend Box Office


As the early box office numbers come in, it appears that this weekend is representative of a strange take on “the more things change, the more things stay the same.” Nearly half of the Top 10 is made up of titles that weren’t playing in theaters last week… and yet the pair occupying the #1 and #2 positions are exactly where they were seven days ago. Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic’s The Super Mario Bros. Movie is once again king of the mountain (surpassing a major milestone in reclaiming its crown), and Lee Cronin’s Evil Dead Rise had a strong second weekend (bolstering the trend of theatrical horror being a big draw).

Check out the full Top 10 below and join me after for analysis.
