Today it was coming to theaters all over the world, but surely there are many who wonder when they will be able to see ‘Super Mario Bros: The Movie’ at home, the great adventure of the Nintendo plumber. Well, we have good news for them, since it is already known that its streaming premiere will take place next May 9just over a month after its release on the big screen.
But it has a trick
Yes indeed, that is the date chosen for its streaming payment premiere on platforms such as Apple, Amazon or Google -and, at least for now, in the United States-, so for its arrival at no additional cost to a service of this type, we will still have to wait for it. The information of May 9 comes from of the iTunes preorder service, very reliable for these cases, although there is always the possibility that Universal will end up postponing it.
It is true that the date is very close to its theatrical release, but movies like ‘Puss in Boots: The Last Wish’ have shown that this type of production can last like a fable on the big screen while being available on these digital services at the same time. To give you an idea, the sequel to ‘Puss in Boots’ debuted on streaming on January 6 but held on in the Top 10 at the North American box office until the end of March.
Besides, Everything indicates that ‘Super Mario Bros. The Movie’ is going to destroy the box office in its first week and it is likely that it will lose strength later, especially if we take into account that the reviews in the United States have not been especially good -right now it has only 54% positive ratings on RottenTomatoes-.
