Something small: Nintendo has shared the final trailer for the Super Mario Bros. movie ahead of its theatrical release on April 5. In addition, the Japanese gaming giant kicked off its annual MAR10 Day celebrations with discounts on some of its best games.
The one-and-a-half-minute spot plays more like a video game trailer than a movie preview. It’s the exact opposite of what Nintendo tried to achieve with its first Super Mario Bros. movie. In 1993. “This Ain’t No Game,” this movie’s movie poster read.
Nintendo’s latest effort features cutting-edge animation and a star-studded voice cast including Chris Pratt, Charlie Day, Anya Taylor-Joy, Jack Black, Seth Rogen, Fred Armisen, and Keegan-Michael Key, among others. Charles Martinet, who has voiced both Mario and Luigi in several games since the early 1990s, will also appear in “surprise cameos” throughout the film.
The film appears to be full of humor that will bring both kids and adults through the doors, and longtime fans will no doubt appreciate the many Easter eggs and callbacks to the franchise.
