Nintendo and Illumination Entertainment announce Super Mario animated movie

Now, whenever they're asked what their favourite Super Mario movie is, they don't have to reluctantly bring up the 1994 live-action trainwreck.

A new, animated Super Mario Bros. film is in the works by Minions and Despicable Me studio Illumination. Since then, the company has mainly focused on animated movies based on the Pokemon franchise. The brands that Illumination have brought to the screen have grossed more than $5.7 billion worldwide, which is a lot of Mario coins.

Also, this was the first time that the suspects of Afghan Taliban and Haqqani network were extradited to Afghanistan. The temblor was felt in the Afghan capital Kabul and the Pakistan capital Islamabad and elsewhere in both countries.

Illumination, which has an exclusive financing and distribution partnership with Universal Pictures, has garnered an extraordinary number of franchise successes for a studio only a decade old. Additional details reveal that series creator Shigeru Miyamoto and Despicable Me producer, Chris Meladandri, will be co-producing the upcoming film. The film will be co-financed by Universal Pictures and Nintendo, and distributed theatrically worldwide by Universal Pictures. The pic, which starred Bob Hoskins as the cheeky Italian plumber and John Leguizamo as his brother Luigi, was critically panned and a huge-box office flop, which reportedly put Nintendo off movie adaptations of Mario or any of its other characters for many years. The film debuted in fourth-place overall in 1993, and was directed by Roland Joffe. Starring the late Bob Hoskins as Mario, the film garnered awful reviews. The movie followed the plumbers to an alternate reality, where dinosaurs became the dominant species, and the film was not well received. A film that Nintendo refuses to acknowledge to this day.
