'Super Mario Bros.' Movie in Development at Illumination

A New Mario Movie Could Happen As Nintendo Reportedly Nears Deal With Despicable Me Studio

We've seen cartoons being made for TV series, but that's about it. Nintendo gave up on doing live action movies thanks to the very bad 1993 film of Super Mario Bros.

A pipeline of popular "Super Mario" games have hit the market recently, with the mobile "Super Mario Run" and the Switch's "Super Mario Odyssey".

Italy OUT of World Cup; emotional Buffon says 'we've failed the country'
Sweden's Lustig was back from suspension, with Johansson starting in place of the injured Albin Ekdal. Federico Bernardeschi was the final Italy substitution and Olsen turned away a Parolo header.

As Kotaku points out, the Wall Street Journal's reports on Nintendo's media haven't always been accurate.

There is perhaps no category of film adaptation more maligned than the video game movie. According to a new report from the Wall Street Journal, Illumination Entertainment is nearing an agreement with Nintendo to create a Super Mario Bros. movie. Presumably, this iteration of Mario at the movies will be more charming and relatable than that surprisingly grim interpretation.

Israel has denied the statement about the downed Russian drone
Iran has no borders with Syria, yet it is the country with the most active military action and is the most expanding. Israel, like other countries in the region, underestimated the Iranian infiltration into Syria.

The newspaper reported that the "Super Mario" movie would be animated by Illumination's Mac Guff studio in Paris and that the project is in the early stages of development. Animated films, especially ones as important as this, tend to take a long time to make, so don't even bother to start holding your breath yet. It likely won't be released for several years.

There are no details as to what the movie would be about, or who among Mario's friends and foes may be coming along for the cinematic excursion. In 1993, their live action Super Mario Brothers movie flopped and, since then, the company has been anxious to put their beloved characters to the movies.

AlabamaThe Crimson Tide treaded water early but the schedule has been better of late and they have taken care of business. If the Buckeyes run the table in impressive fashion, the hunch here is that they'll end up in the playoff.
