Remembering SUPER MARIO BROS: THE MOTION PICTURE Starring Bob Hoskins, John Leguizamo & Dennis Hopper
It’s hard to imagine how big a failure Super Marion Bros: The Motion Picture was on its release in 1993. Directed by Rocky Morton and Annabel Jankel, the film was supposed to be the film that brought video games and movies together, a lucrative union that was to last for decades to come. Sadly, it wasn’t and the film essentially became the byword for why these two art forms should never converge. Made for $48 million (a huge sum in 1993), the film failed to find an audience grossing just $20.9 million at the US box office.
