After a highly-anticipated theatrical release last year, The Super Mario Bros. Movie is now set to make its digital debut this week. The animated movie will become available for streaming on BookMyShow Stream on May 19 giving fans a chance to join Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach on their thrilling adventure. Starring Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, and Charlie Day as Luigi, the film was released in theatres in December 2022 to mixed reviews from critics. However, thanks to the popularity of the classic video game, the movie emerged as a box office success with a global earning of over $500 million.
The movie follows the iconic plumber duo as they set out to rescue Princess Peach from the clutches of the notorious Bowser. Praised for its humour and faithfulness to the beloved video game franchise, the film has also faced criticism for its lack of originality. Despite the varied reception, it is anticipated that the cinematic adaptation will take the fans of the Super Mario Bros. games down memory lane.
Directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic, the film boasts a screenplay penned by Matthew Fogel. Besides Pratt, Taylor-Joy, and Day, the cast includes Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, and Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong.
Fans can rent The Super Mario Bros. Movie on BookMyShow Stream. This is one of the highly-anticipated releases on OTT this week besides Dungeons and Dragons Honour Among Thieves and The Pope's Exorcist, which will also become available for rent on the same platform this week.
