The Super Mario Bros. Movie is one of the most awaited films of the year. Not only children but grown-ups are also anticipating the film for a heavy dose of nostalgia associated with the video game franchise.
The ensemble cast, including some of the biggest stars like Chris Pratt and Anya Taylor-Joy, has further elevated the excitement around the film. So how can you watch the film in theaters or on streaming platforms? Read on to find out.
How to Watch The Super Mario Bros. Movie?
The Super Mario Bros. Movie has been released across cinemas in the country on April 5th. Right now, the only way to watch the film is to visit your nearest theater and enjoy the adventures of Mario and Luigi.
The film is being screened in all the national cinema chains, including AMC Theatres, Cinemark Theatres, and Regal Theaters. You can visit the official website of the cinemas of your choice to book your tickets. They can also be purchased from dedicated platforms like Fandango, TicketsNow, and AtomTickets.
Alternatively, you can buy tickets physically by visiting the theaters at showtime. However, looking at the hype around the film, we suggest you book your tickets online if you wish to catch the film in the initial few days of its release.
When will The Super Mario Bros. Movie Stream Online?
After the film finishes its theatrical fun, it will be made available to stream on Peacock. The previous two releases by Universal Pictures, Knock at the Cabin and M3GAN, were released on Peacock some 50 days after their theatrical release.
A similar trend is expected to be followed by The Super Mario Bros. Movie. So the film is expected to be released for streaming by the end of May. DreamWorks Animation and Illumination are also said to have signed a deal with Netflix to launch the film on the platform four months after its arrival on Peacock.
In that case, The Super Mario Bros. Movie can be expected to be dropped on Netflix by the end of September. The streaming date can also be pushed a little further if the film keeps performing well at the box office and has an extended run in theaters.
What is The Super Mario Bros. Movie About?
In the film, Mario will be seen going against Bowser, who is planning to conquer the whole world. The plumber will be taking help from his brother Luigi and Princess Peach along the way.
“A Brooklyn plumber named Mario travels through the Mushroom Kingdom with a princess named Peach and an anthropomorphic mushroom named Toad to find Mario’s brother, Luigi, and to save the world from a ruthless fire-breathing Koopa named Bowser,” reads the official synopsis.
The film stars Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Fred Armisen as King Cranky Kong, Sebastian Maniscalco as Foreman Spike, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek, Rino Romano as Uncle Tony and Khary Payton as the Penguin King.
