Long before Nintendo and Illumination's record-breaking Super Mario Bros. animated movie, there was the infamous live-action film starring Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo, which has since gone on to become a cult hit.

Now, to celebrate this movie's 30th anniversary on 15th September 2023, a 4K theatrical re-release of Super Mario Bros. will be aired across cinemas in Japan. Here's a look at the promotional poster for this special re-release:
