The Super Mario Bros. Movie: New TV Spot Teases Cat Mario

We have a new TV spot for The Super Mario Bros. Movie, and this one spotlights Seth Rogan as Donkey Kong and teases Cat Mario.

In a love that still feels like it is about twenty years too late, we are finally getting an animated movie called on Super Mario Bros. next year. So far, the response to The Super Mario Bros. Movie has been mixed by fans, with some praising the visuals but having issues with the voice cast, Chris Pratt as Mario specifically. However you might feel about any of it, the attention to detail that Illumination has shown with this adaptation cannot be denied, but whether or not all this can come together as an actual movie remains to be seen. We still have a few months to go, but you can expect that once the marketing blitz for this one, it will be impossible to escape. If you thought Illumination put the Minions everywhere and in everything, the marketing for this could be ten times worse. We got a new TV spot today that features Cat Mario and some more of Donkey Kong as voiced by Seth Rogan, making precisely the jokes you would expect.
