In a stunning turn of events, The Super Mario Bros. movie has smashed the box office records on its opening day. The film, which features the beloved plumber and his brother in a live-action adventure, has delighted the fans and critics alike. The sequel is already in the works, and it promises to introduce another iconic character from the video game franchise. Yes, you guessed it: Yoshi, the green dinosaur who likes to eat everything. We can’t wait to see how they will pull that off.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie is a smashing success. Who would have thought that a bunch of pixels jumping on mushrooms and turtles could translate into such a cinematic masterpiece? The critics are raving, the fans are ecstatic, and the box office is booming. Super Mario Bros. 2 is inevitable, and we can’t wait to see what other video game gems will grace the big screen next. Pac-Man? Tetris? Pong? The possibilities are endless.
The Super Mario Bros. 2 to bring video game darling to the cinema
According to figures from the well-informed industry site Deadline, the film has already grossed $26 million in its first few days and is heading for an astounding 127.5 million by the end of the week. This almost matches the figures of I – Simply Incorrigible 2 in the forecasts, which finally took in almost one billion US dollars worldwide in 2013 (via The Numbers).
Given this success, Super Mario Bros. 2 should already be in the bag. And fans can already look forward to a new addition from the video game template in the sequel. As a post-credit scene from Super Mario Bros. shows, the dino lizard Yoshi will most likely appear in the sequel.
When will The Super Mario Bros. 2 hit theaters?
Illumination Entertainment, the brilliant studio behind such masterpieces as Despicable Me 2 and The Secret Life of Pets 2, is known for their speedy production of sequels. They usually crank out a new movie every three or four years, which is amazing considering the quality and originality of their work. So, based on their track record, we can safely assume that The Super Mario Bros. Movie 2 will be out by 2026 or 2027 at the latest. That’s not too long to wait.
Of course, there is a slight possibility that it could take a bit longer. After all, The Super Mario Bros. Movie was not your average animated movie. It had more complex animation than any other Illumination movie, which is saying something. It also had to deal with the challenges of adapting one of the most beloved video game franchises of all time, which is no easy feat. So maybe it will take them five or six years to make the sequel, like it did with Sing 2. Or maybe even seven or eight years, like it did with the original movie. But hey, good things come to those who wait, right?
So there you have it, folks. The Super Mario Bros. Movie 2 will probably be out in the next decade. And we’re sure it will be worth every minute of anticipation. After all, who doesn’t love watching two plumbers run around in a colorful world full of mushrooms and turtles? It’s pure cinematic gold!
