We all remember the horrible disaster that was the ‘Super Mario Bros.’ movie back in 1993. If you don’t remember the film, we’d like to know just how you managed to successfully wipe it from your memory. Although the last attempt at bringing Mario to the big screen was atrocious, Sony is in negotiations with Nintendo to make a new ‘Super Mario Bros.’ movie (or possibly multiple movies), as revealed in the latest round of hacked e-mails from the studio.
Super Mario Bros.
The best and worst thing about 'The Four Players' is that it feels like the kind of thing Hollywood would actually do. You see, filmmaker Evan Daugherty has taken the bright, cheerful and nonsensical world of Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. video game franchise and given it the Christopher Nolan treatment. In a series of four short films, Daugherty and his team transform these playful gaming mascots into gritty "real" characters, an exercise that is simultaneously depressing and hilarious.
Luigi Mario himself, John Leguizamo, has posted a video on YouTube that expresses his feelings on the 20th Anniversary of 'Super Mario Bros.' and recounts some of his tales from filming the movie.
