The Super Mario Bros. Movie will likely expect a major box office boost on Friday, April 28, when the film hits theatres in the Mario franchise’s native Japan. Along with that, the film is also expected to arrive on NBC Universal’s Peacock streaming service on May 9. With all the acclamations, the recent Super Mario movie did improve from the ill-fated live-action Super Mario Bros. film from 1993.
With Chris Pratt voicing Mario and Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, the movie also has Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong and Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, among others. With the success of the movie, a sequel to the Super Mario movie has been inevitable.
