The Super Mario Bros. Movie is still seeing overwhelming success at the box office. The film passed $1 billion globally over the weekend, becoming the 10th animated film in history to do so. Bringing in $40 million domestically, the movie also took the title for best fourth weekend ever for an animated film—and for a universal film, beating out Jurassic World at $29.2 million.
Meanwhile, theaters are preparing for the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 this weekend. Arnold Schwarzenegger took to Twitter on Friday (April 28th) to congratulate his son-in-law, Chris Pratt, on the movie. “I saw #GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol3 last night and WOW. @prattprattpratt , you crushed it. A non-stop, perfect mix of comedy and action. I loved it and I’m very, very proud of you,” the Terminator actor wrote.
