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.

Make the Case: 5 Best Bob Hoskins Movies

We’re going to talk about them in greater detail later, but for now, there are a couple of things to mention about two of the best Bob Hoskins movies. Two movies that dominated my childhood, which featured the late, dearly missed Bob Hoskins: One was obviously Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It won’t surprise anyone who knows even a little about me to know that I grew up loving that movie. In the present, it holds up astonishingly well. Hoskins performance as the gruff, flawed, but ultimately moral PI Eddie Valiant was something I liked even as a four-year-old. Like the movie itself, the performance, the character, and ultimately the man who put those things together hold up very well indeed.
