“The Super Mario Bros. Movie” has been set to come out on April 7, 2022 for a while now. It’s a little over a month away, but Universal and Illumination gave Mario fans a bit of a surprise treat on February 28. Variety reports that the film will now release in the United States two days early on April 5, which is a Wednesday. No explanation has been given for the change-up, but this is undoubtedly good news for fans who couldn’t wait any longer to see Mario and Luigi in action.
The film will then roll out internationally throughout April and May. Its Japan release date will be April 28 to coincide with the Golden Week Holidays. On top of that, fans will get a chance to see a little more of the film when the final trailer comes out on March 9. Nintendo even has a countdown on its YouTube page to get viewers hyped, although, at this point, it’s safe to say anyone who’s interested in the movie is well aware of its existence.
Get ready to take a ride down the Rainbow Road on April 5 when Mario and crew come racing into theaters.
