Super Mario Bros. is a 1993 American live-action film directed by Rocky Morton and Annabel Jankel. Based on the video game of the same name and its entire franchise, the film features Bob Hoskins, John Leguizamo, and Dennis Hopper. The film tells the story of the Mario brothers, Mario and Luigi, as they find a dystopia, where King Koopa is a dictator. They have to rescue Princess Daisy and stop Koopa from attempting to merge the dimensions so that he could become a dictator of both worlds. The film also features Samantha Mathis, Richard Edson, and Fisher Stevens.
Super Mario Bros. was a critical and commercial failure upon its release in the United States. Harsh criticism was aimed at the film's darker atmosphere and its deviations from the game franchise. Despite this, the film was nominated for two Saturn Awards (one for Best Costume, the other for Best Make-up). It received a minor re-release in early 2010.
