A New Poster For The Super Mario Bros. Movie Is Released

A new poster for The Super Mario Bros. Movie has been released, and it seems like a missed opportunity considering how generic it is.

It's still a little amazing that it took this long for someone to make an animated movie based on Super Mario Bros., but here we are in 2023, and it is finally happening. However you might feel about the casting or the art style, it does look like this movie will be leaning into the mythology of these games pretty hard. While that aspect of the film might be unique, there are other aspects that aren't looking that unique, and the latest poster is a great example of that. This poster looks like every other poster we've seen from every other movie that has been released in the last couple of years. They could have done something cool, like recreating old box art from one of the games or something like that, but this feels pretty lazy. Maybe other aspects of The Super Mario Bros. Movie will make up for it.
