Has Video Saved The Cinema Stars?

For all the critical hype (and my hard-earned dollars) AIR received last weekend, the theatrical box office was overwhelmingly titled toward a film not featuring a single three-dimensional human actor, essentially retold a story that began 40 years ago with a 16-bit monkey rolling barrels and seemed to shock the world.  As THE WRAP.com’s Jeremy Fuster enthustiascally reported:

Universal/Illumination’s “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” has now earned the largest global animated opening weekend in box office history with a worldwide five-day launch of $377 million, passing the $358 million record set by Disney’s “Frozen II” on Thanksgiving weekend in 2019.
