The Super Mario Bros. Movie poster brings Nintendo’s classic characters to Rainbow Road for some Mario Kart action!
The Super Mario Bros. Movie is bringing the beloved Nintendo franchise to cinemas in April, Chris Pratt’s Mario voice and all! We’ve already seen multiple trailers teasing the animated adventure from Nintendo and Illumination. However, a new poster for the film is here to announce the date of the film’s final trailer!
The Super Mario Bros. poster features Mario (Chris Pratt), Peach (Anya Taylor-Joy), Donkey Kong (Seth Rogen), Toad (Keegan-Michael Key), and Cranky Kong (Fred Armisen) driving along Rainbow Road while avoiding Bob-ombs and Spiney Shells. Each character is piloting a vehicle from the ultra-popular Mario Kart video game franchise, as floating islands and stars hang in the sky. The poster is another example of how far Nintendo and Illumination are willing to go to make the Super Mario Bros. Movie a colorful romp through the Mushroom Kingdom.
The new trailer for The Super Mario Bros. Movie will be revealed during a Nintendo Direct scheduled for March 9 at 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET.
You can check out the poster below:
Directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic (collaborators on Teen Titans Go!, Teen Titans Go! To the Movies) from a screenplay by Matthew Fogel (The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, Minions: The Rise of Gru), the film stars Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike.
The film is produced by Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and by Shigeru Miyamoto for Nintendo. The film will be co-financed by Universal Pictures and Nintendo and released worldwide by Universal Pictures.
While the world waits with bated breath for The Super Mario Bros. Movie, Nintendo is munching on Super Mushrooms and growing its brand in the film industry. Nintendo acquired Dynamo Pictures in July of 2022 to establish a CG animation company, Nintendo Pictures. The studio plans to adapt more of Nintendo’s IPs. Nintendo has yet to reveal what properties the studio intends to adopt.
If you’re unfamiliar with Dynamo Pictures, they’ve worked on projects like Ghost in the Shell, Studio Ghibli’s Earwig and the Witch, Nier Replicant, Mega Man, Death Stranding, and titles in the Resident Evil franchise. While Nintendo has yet to reveal any potential plans for the studio, fans may eventually see adaptations of The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Animal Crossing, or Luigi’s Mansion.
Are you excited about The Super Mario Bros. Movie coming to theaters on April 7, 2023? Will the movie starring (arguably) the most iconic characters in gaming make more money than Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog 2? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section.
