The Super Mario Bros. Movie Gets 20th Anniversary Screening


Remember that movie from the early 90s starring Bob Hoskins and Dennis Hopper that vaguely followed the story of Super Mario? Well, it’s getting a 20th anniversary screening in LA at the end of this month.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie was a financial disaster but over the years it’s blossomed into a wonderful cult film enjoyed by fans across the globe. On May 24, a screening will be held at midnight in the NuArt Theatre, Los Angeles.

The time has come! As the 20th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. draws near, we are pleased to announce a special screening that will be held at the NuArt Theatre in Los Angeles, CA on Friday, May 24th at midnight!

Screenwriter Parker Bennett and production designer David L. Snyder will be sitting on a Q & A panel, answering questions from fans.

      1. But this film isn’t bad that its good… its bad that its horrible.

        So suicide is a cult classic amongst people now a days?

  1. Pitfall near your door

    Hope they also do something more for Mario’s anniversary this time then 15th, this was a pretty humorous movie but then again was very creepy and the casting wasn’t all to good…also the fact that Mario is Luigi’s father in the movie.

    1. Pitfall near your door

      Im guessing they are just doing it for fun and have a laugh at yourself, its not like they are making a sequel to it…man imagine how that would go out. o3o

  2. It took one a long time to forget this injustice of cinematography, and once more it rises from the ashes and stares us in the eye like a goomba about to be mercilessly crushed by an almighty kuribo’s boot.

    However, it IS better than the Mortal Kombat sequels…so there’s that!

  3. The movie itself was tolerable, but it just wasn’t Super Mario Bros. It was a joke to the Super Mario Bros. games. They got EVERYTHING wrong. Dennis Hopper as Bowser? John Leguizamo as Luigi (with no mustache)? Daisy instead of Peach? Yoshi not big enough to ride? Goombas that were giants with shrunken heads? Ugh! I’m gonna stop right there.

  4. Since last year I’ve been working on a better Mario movie for Disney, it’ll be a huge improvement over this one, it’ll be CGI like the games, it will have dark and sad moments like Toy Story 3, and here’s a cast list I suggested:

    Mario-Mark Wahlberg (w/o Italian accent)
    Luigi-Robin Williams (read Mario)
    Bowser-Gary Oldman
    Peach-Amy Adams
    Daisy-Natalie Portman
    Toad-Seth Rogen
    Yoshi-Dana Carvey
    Wario-Jack Black (read Mario)
    Waluigi-Adam Sandler (read Mario
    Professor E.Gadd-Jim Carrey w/German accent
    Donkey Kong-Arnold Schwarzenegger
    Diddy Kong-Chris Tucker
    Kamek-Ray Liotta
    Lakitu-Joe Pesci
    Boom Boom-Hulk Hogan
    Nabbit-Christopher Walken
    Hammer Bro-Conan O’Brien
    Sledge Bro-Jack Nicholson
    Boomerang Bro-Jeff Dunham…and his little friends
    Fire Bro-Martin Scorsese
    Ice Bro-James Woods
    Bowser Jr-Justin Bieber
    Toadsworth-John Hurt
    Rosalina-Angelina Jolie
    King Toadstool-Robert De Niro

  5. I remember seeing this movie as a kid. Just thought of it as weird back then.

    The biggest problem is that a movie like his was doomed from the start. The Mario series isn’t made for live-action. It’s too cartoony to really keep the feel of the games. Any future movie needs to be CGI.

    If you want a live-action Nintendo film, you’d probably have to go either Zelda or Metroid.

  6. I love this movie. If you actually pay attention to the story, it’s pretty cool. Humans evolved from dinosaurs vs. humans evolved from primates. Interesting to me. Plus it had comedy.

  7. DarklordNintendoFan

    I see no problem with this. If you don’t like it, just don’t go. I happened to like the movie. It holds some nostalgic value to me and I thought it was a fun experience. Sure, I wouldn’t mind seeing a movie get released that actually resembles the game, but this was a good movie nonetheless.

  9. I found this film very good, it’s a darker Mario world and reminds me of Blade Runner. I think it’s a good thing they do something different from the obvious (some people don’t understand that).

  10. Maybe not the best adaptation film, but in a weird way, I really like this movie. It’s just so much fun.
