2022 The Super Mario Bros Movie Trailer
The mind-twister trailer was released in October 2022, finally, disclosing Chris Pratt’s Mario voice as well as Jack Black’s booming Bowser.
This is in part due to the film’s art designer, David Snyder, having previously been designed for the science-fiction cyberpunk film Blade Runner and both directors of the film having previously created the satirical dystopian science fiction series Max Headroom.
With Super Mario World having been released in North America less than two years prior to the film, the film carries a strong dinosaur theme and plot inspired by Dinosaur Land.
The Super Mario Bros Movie was a financial failure and has received generally negative reviews from critics, with the main criticism points being the plot, inconsistent tone, and deviations from the source material.
