Post Illumination/Uni in talks for 'Super Mario Brothers' movie
Surprised it took this long, actually. Better move going animated than trying live action again.

At the very least it should be a lock to become the highest grossing video game adaptation ever.

the live action one in the 90s still gives me nightmares. even as a child I recognized how atrocious that movie was.

I mean it's worth trying. But am I crazy or would be Mario Kart or Super Smash Bros movie be an easier sell than a regular Mario one? Super Smash Bros might lose the toddlers a little bit, but I think everyone above 10 would be more interested in its adaptation than Mario saving Peach from Bowser. You couldn't have Mario fight Luigi but you could make some characters like Captain Falcon bad guys along with Bowser, Gandondorf, etc. Too anime? Japan would pop for it. Mario Kart could have good guy characters racing against each other for fun I guess.

Also if this works out I wouldn't mind a Banjo Kazooie movie. It would basically be Shrek and Donkey

Could Pokemon work as a Jungle Book/Beauty and the Beast type of live action/CGI hybrid? I guess the difference is the pre-existing story isn't there. But there is huge franchise upside and worst case scenario you get that international money.

The Nintendo brand should have went for animated movies a long time ago. A straight-forward Mario movie could easily work.

This also makes me wish we'd get a Zelda movie someday. Doesn't have to be a hard PG-13, but something close to LOTR.

If I was Amazon I would've rather gone all in on Zelda adaptation than LOTR prequel, honestly

Zelda could be the answer sorely needed for the slacking fantasy genre (in films) right by striking that long lost 80s fantasy vibe the genre needs now

It will make good dough but I don't see it can survive multiple movies. Even Lego movies have started going down and I think it will continue that downward trend and this won't be as big as Lego movie.
